Troy draws ideas at a rapid pace by hand while saving both time and cost for the clients to view his ideas on paper before a computer print out is shown. This creative process is natural and organic. Troy was taught to design and illustrate in pencil form before adding the usage of a computer. He create concepts or photographic images that works well as a black and white design. A good idea must hold together in its true black and white form. If it does not hold together in black and white then, adding bells and whistles from the computer creates a bad design absence of good basic design principles. Troy states,”I have known as a small child that my artistic ability is my gift from God. All that I am comes from and through Him.”
