I want to draw struggling Christians like myself back to God through my art and writing, and by the way I run my business.

test-spread-10My paid services include illustration (kids books, flyers, corporate, etc.), animation (music videos, whiteboard-type videos, etc.) and product design (from concepting through engineering drawings). See below for examples.

Mechanical Engineering,
and another B.S. in
Industrial Design
(here are some of my cool school projects). And I’m working on a
Masters in Theology.

I worked a 9 to 5 designing outdoor products for about 7 years. green watering canYou can find a lot of my designs at Home Depot, Lowes, Ace Hardware, and I’m still discovering other places they ended up! but now I do mostly illustration, animation, and a little bit of product design.)

Raw-Spoon-w-monster-and-birdMy Writing: But in my free time I write and illustrate books and blogs. I was a writer for Focus on The Family’s Boundless.org (young adults blog) for a year though I personally am not ideologically constrained to all of their views. I also write for YMI.today (Our Daily Bread’s young adults blog), and FaithHappenings.org. I write fiction under my pen name Raw Spoon, and non-fiction under my real name Ross Boone. Only my non-fiction is overtly spiritual, while the fiction has spiritual themes.
