My name is Douglas A. Sirois.
Born and raised in Massachusetts, I graduated from the Art Institute of Boston in 2001 earning himself a BFA in illustration and then in 2009, a Master of Fine Arts degree in illustration from CalState, Fullerton, CA. I have been an adjunct professor at California State University, Fullerton and at the Lesley University College of Art and Design, Boston and the New Hampshire Institute of Art, Manchester, NH.
I have been a freelance illustrator for close to fifteen years as well as part of several design studios. Working within the entertainment industry for several years with a variety of design studios has given me the experience of working as part of a team as well as important client relation skills. My involvement can be seen throughout the design, branding and illustration of Blueray and DVD cover art on campaigns for films like The Princess Bride, Planet of the Apes, and theSound of Music, to name just a few. As a marketing key art designer and sketch artist I have worked on notable television shows such as Game of Thrones, Falling Skies, and The Librarians.
I have worked as a digital painter for comics and illustrated novels with a focus on Fantasy and science fiction artwork for clients such as Dark Horse Comics, IDW Comics, Penguin Publishing and Wizards of the Coast. Most recently, my work has lent a hand in branding and package design for companies such as Hasbro and Schylling Toys and freelancing on children’s publishing and book and magazine covers.
