Howdy, I'm Eric. Or, as some call me, ThatSummersGuy. I’m an illustrator and graphic designer based out of North Mississippi. I’ve been doing this for about 15 years now, and my mom totally thinks I don’t suck. I don’t have the big, fancy Bachelor’s degree like some others. I don’t go out hunting for awards and recognition. What I do have are the drive, determination, experience and talent to make sure your project gets completed to the highest of standards.
