Who I Am
My name is Krishna. While I was born in Canada, I’ve lived in the US for most of my life, and have settled in the Tampa Bay area for the past six years. I’m a husband and a father. I also have a black belt in Taekwondo. Hi-yah!
What I Do
I wear many hats: instructor, cartoonist, illustrator, graphic designer, web monkey. I teach design courses full-time within the Media Arts and Animation Department at the Art Institute of Tampa. I also teach as an adjunct professor within the Arts Department at the University of South Florida. I have been working as a professional cartoonist since 1999. My comics have been featured on such notable sites like DIGG.com, Mashable, CNET and Gizmodo, and (unlike me) my first self-published book, PC Weenies: Rebootus Maximus, has traveled to all seven continents.
What I Can Do For You
I specialize in making comics that entertain and educate, using my quirky sense of humor and art to promote your company’s ideas, products and services in a unique and engaging way.
I’m also available for meaty projects involving editorial and advertising illustration, album art and vis dev design for children’s books and animation. I love kung fu, animation, muscle cars, rock music and comics – and infuse those elements into what I do. Let me rock out on your big project!
Clients I’ve Worked With
I have created custom illustrations and comics for many clients including Microsoft, The Smithsonian Museum of American History, Typemock, Envato, PubNub, EDMC, EE Times, VNU, The BENT Magazine, The Chai Company, Other World Computing, India Currents, Ultramatics, Hinduism Today and The Straits Times newspaper in Singapore. I have also created album art and logo designs for OWC Radio, The Typical Mac User Podcast, MacMania Podcast, and The International Mac Podcast.
