Who I am

I know, I know. The name ‘Chickwalker’ sounds a little weird. Here’s the story behind it: About a decade ago, one of my first creations that caught notice in the cg industry was this tall, long-legged, egg-shaped robot operated by a young rooster boy, or as I call it, the ‘Lil’ Chickwalker’. My website is named after it. There you go. Now you know.

Currently employed as a lead character artist at Blur Studio. I’m a self-taught, award-winning digital artist with a burning passion to birth new, inventive concepts and characters and breathe life into everything I create. My work has been featured in film, games, cinematics, television, toys, trade shows, and a spread of cg art books and magazines across the globe. Clients and projects vary widely in an array of markets and include Blur Studio, Hasbro Toys, Fox, Warner Brothers, Zynga, Autodesk, Shadows in Darkness, Mandalay Films, ReelFX, NBA Dallas Mavericks, Ryan Kingslien’s ZBrush Workshops, among others. I’ve been in the industry for over 14 years. I’ve been married for almost 15 years and I’ve successfully made three humans.

I’m also available for freelance work. My resume’ is below along with my handsome face:
