My roots as an editing page and brand as a whole date back to 2016. Back when I started publicly displaying my work, it was mainly geared toward making cover art concepts for the popular video game, NBA 2k17. They were merely mock ups of what certain players would look like on the cover of the video game, but it launched my platform into popularity after my most popular piece, dedicated to fallen legend Craig Sager, blew up on social media. Gaining hundreds of thousands of views online, it quickly grew my brand to where it is today. Eventually, I stopped my series of cover arts, but I feel as though it is important to include them in my portfolio and on the website as they hold a special place in my heart. They are a symbol of where my career began, just a guy making 2k covers for fun!
