About:

Hi, Orpheus Collar here! I draw for fun and profit, as a New York Times best-selling graphic novelist on The Kane Chronicles Trilogy, currently in development at Netflix, and the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, currently being adapted on Disney +. As a visual consultant for motion pictures, I've worked on Advertisements you've seen, TV shows & Music videos you might have seen, and movies you'll likely never see.

Based out of Hollywood, made in Baltimore. When not on assignment, I enjoyed world travel, motorcycling, and street hustling as a 6 minute portrait artist. In 2018 I co-founded a Not-for-Profit called Drawing Us Together, which brought free hand-made portraiture to underseen communities before a global pandemic made large gatherings untenable.
