I'm Darren, a minimally known illustrator and graphic designer with 30 years of professional experience as a commercial artist. I live in the Midwest but have worked internationally for most major publishing and entertainment companies. I spent 10 years of my career in corporate America creating posters and calendars for mass market retail and specialty stores. I started Strecker Graphics about 10 years ago and have been freelancing for my supper ever since. My illustrative work has appeared in the programs of the Brickyard 400 and Indianapolis 500 Motorcar Races. I created the cover for the 2015 Brickyard 400 and continue to develop the Kids Club characters for IMS. I've also created album covers and flyers for local and national rock bands. I have a couple of independently published books. I was one of many artists represented in a comic anthology published through the Indy Web Comics Group, and a children's book called "Leelah at the Lake"; a collaboration with a friend who wrote the text. You can still purchase either of these books through Indy Web Comics Group or Amazon .
For the past several years I've worked with Brady Games creating map illustrations for a variety of video game strategy guides. I'll be gearing up for more of these projects with the all new Prima Games this fall and into winter.
Thanks to everyone who faves and watches! Comments on artwork are always appreciated and I will respond to anyone who takes the time to leave word.
