My name is Martin Crownover, and I’m an artist, designer, and developer. I’m currently working as an assistant graphic designer with Exploding Tuba Studios, and I also create product renderings and develop games and websites in my spare time.
I’ve been drawing since I was able to hold a pencil, and my background in illustration serves as the basis for most of my creative efforts. Over the years, I’ve built upon this foundation through experience and education- learning additional aspects of art and design, working with many different types of software, and employing my creative abilities wherever possible. Somewhere along the line, I picked up some programming skill as well.
I like to work smartly and efficiently. I’m a good problem-solver, and I pay close attention to details. In order to keep my work fresh and productivity high, I am constantly trying to learn new things. When there’s a better way to do something, I’m not happy until I can figure out what it is and implement it.
I also have a good sense of humor and I always keep things in perspective, so when deadlines are looming and pressure is high, I’m still right there, getting things done and staying cool while I’m at it.
Past and current clients include CytoSport, Purity Organic, Liberty Mutual, Studio Lambert, noLove Skateboarding, Hospitality Supply, and Vetra Games. Additionally, I’ve worked for Dominion Enterprises, and have had my illustrations published in a handful of places.
I attended the University of the Pacific, and received a Bachelor’s of Arts, Art in 2004.
Please take a moment to browse through the work on my site- I’ve got many unique and fun projects showing here. If you’re interesting in learning more about how I create stuff, I’ve also written a little about the tools and methods I use, which you can find here.
