"Failure is unimportant. It takes courage to make a fool of yourself."
~ Charlie Chaplin
Lewis has always worn many hats with many faces, from the whimsical to educational to the just plain silly sort. This can be mostly attributed to his gypsy-like childhood. His motley crew of family members has always given him a certain sense of originality and creativity. Moving around from one city to the next was just as natural as breathing for Lewis and his kin. A modern day caravan of U-Haul trucks, 85' Dodge Ram Vans lead by a crisp white Lincoln Town Car with mint green velvet interior, replaces the archaic view of carnival-like and brilliantly painted wooden horse drawn carriages.
With a background like this, it is no wonder why Lewis has had his hands in so many things. After graduating from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2006 with not just one degree like most students, but two of them, he continued to work in the area of print production graphic design; having almost worked in that industry for 7 years by the time he graduated. In 2007, Lewis continued to take on freelance projects from a variety of clientele. His work has spanned from books and other publications to product line design/labeling to posters and logos. His clients have included Morris Multimedia, H&L Wardrobe Essentials, Savannah Area Board of REALTORS, the events council of Juliet, Ga and many more.
Lewis joined the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators in 2010. Lewis still freelances and is always excited to work on new creative and interesting projects. He participates in as many design and illustration challenges and competitions as he can. He also enjoys long walks in the park, British comedy, Reese's Pieces candy and the occasional game of Super Mario Bros. every now and again.
