Who’s behind HaleGrafx?

My name is Kevin Hale and thank you for coming by to check out my site!  I am probably best described as a multimedia designer and developer. I split up most of my time between doing illustration, sculpting, graphic design and web design & development for various clients, personal projects and pretty much whatever suits my mood.

What is this site for?

The reason behind this site is many fold. I want to share my work, share my processes, share ideas, get feedback, help others, connect with clients and more! This site will always be a work in progress as I continually add content and look for ways to improve it.
