As featured in the Times-Union and Journal Gazette
Drake’s personality makes him easy to work with on projects. He is attentive to details and listens so that he captures the essence of an idea that others present to him. He has a quiet confidence and is extremely reliable. He welcomes new learning opportunities and shares his knowledge openly with others.
-Jennifer K. Mitchell Shepherd, Director of Alumni Relations at Manchester University
Drake presents himself with grace and maturity. He kept me updated on his progress with the drawings. I could not be happier with the outcome and know his illustrations are going to help sell my book.
