He can explain complicated and fuzzy creative concepts to a team and have them all understand exactly what the goals are. His work always possesses an inexplicable charm and an attention to detail, in any genre he tackles.
Teamed with his creative abilities, Lane is also one of the most reliable and professional people I’ve worked with. He gets the work done on time, to budget, and the communication is always straight forward. I cannot recommend Lane highly enough.”

If you need a guy who can take directions like "make the characters look like the came from a children's book" or "I'm thinking circus animals" or "imagine if Civilization met Mario Party" or "the character needs to look like a young A-Rod when he was with the Rangers" and develop beautiful, impactful artwork or good sound design advice, he's your guy. Highly recommended."
— Nancy MacIntyre, CEO and Co-Founder at Fingerprint

That experience taught me that Lane is someone I can charge head on into battle with in any situation. A consummate professional, Lane is gifted as an artist and as a creative mind in general. I would jump at the chance to work with Lane again on any project. His passion for the entertainment industry and positive attitude in general promotes a feeling of positivity across the entire team.

“I had the absolute pleasure to work directly with Lane on two game related projects. As a concept artist and illustrator Lane is a talented force; a consummate professional, an excellent creative communicator, and above all else... a highly passionate contributor who seeks to support the creative vision with every stroke of the brush.
Lane is deeply in touch with the creative energies of any project, and shows a deep respect for established visual style and content. He is a true chameleon in this regard and can work in a variety of styles to suit the needs of your project. That said, he can offer fresh and varied visual perspectives on style when needed and takes great care to achieve the finest results. He has my deepest respect as an artist, for all he has accomplished, and as a positive high energy human being. It was always a great experience working with Lane.”
