I was lucky that day the venerable matte artist, Mathew Yuricich, hired me to
apprentice on Blade Runner. I washed a ton of paintbrushes and learned the
classic art of matte painting, which has kept me busy for a quite awhile.We still
keep in touch; Matt is living up in Washington and tells some really great movie

Lately Iíve been working my way back towards illustration and drawing and
painting as much as I can.
