The Ninth Gate Storyboards

I created this three-part storyboard as an education project based on The Ninth Gate (1999) in Photoshop CS3 with a Intuos3 4×5 Wacom Tablet in the spring of 2010.  The focus of the project was on quickly employing storyboard conventions like visual direction for camera movement and breaking down the camera shots for a director and crew.  I learned a lot through this project about the craft of visual storytelling.

I'm an Illustrator and Concept Artist with 15+ years experience world-building and telling stories. I am passionate about developing memorable worlds for film, books, magazines, and games in the imaginative genres. Recently, I've begun blending 3D ZBrush sculpting into my 2D work.

I graduated from Reed College with a B.A. in Psychology and pursued a brief career in Psychiatry research before enrolling in my first formal art class. I realized my passion for digital art, visual story-telling, and interactive media and left Psychology to earn my MFA in Illustration and focused on concept art for games in the Academy of Art University. From my studio in the San Francisco Bay Area I work with a variety of clients, publishers, and studios.
