Professional info
 

Since finishing University, the creating of art took a bit of a back seat as I went on a path of discovery to figure out what I wanted to pursue as a career. I continued to dabble in a bit of freelance graphics design and digital illustration but mostly offering my services unpaid or for charity in my spare time. As much as I loved to create, I knew it would be tough to gain a career in the subject so I worked on expanding my skills in other areas of work, which led me to a career in marketing. Neopog Art is my side project which enables me to carry on creating and fulfilling a passionate hobby.
