Welcome to GrafixHype!
My name is Leroy Whitaker. I’ve been drawing as long as I can remember. I officially started working for clients back in High School. I’ve always been fascinated with superheroes, comics, animation and video games. Therefore, my drawing style has always gravitated towards a more cartoon comic book look. However, I started to pick up more design experience during my time in the U.S. Air Force. While Visual Information wasn’t my military profession, I found that I was usually asked to do design work no matter where I was or what I was doing officially in my job.
After finishing my service with the Air Force I’ve worked as an Information Technology Professional, Web Developer, Web Designer and primarily as a Graphic Designer in the government contracting arena. I have also worked independently as a freelancer in illustration and design in various occasions under the GrafixHype name.
Since professional creative career begin in Illustration I consider it my strongest skill. I also have experience working with various Adobe software, Web technologies, Design trends, ideas and methods. I’ve also branched out into online marketing and entrepreneurship. You’ll find some of my work here, some of my thoughts here and links to some of my business projects such as webcomics and books I write and illustrate. You can get find out more about me here.
