Hello! Welcome to my online portfolio!
Vector Self Portrait
I am Alexander O'Mara. I am a designer, coder, and artist specializing in digital art. I create everything from websites to games to images to programs. Unlike most designers, I am also a coder, which gives me the capability to code the websites and games that I design, seeing it from start to finish.
I have been making websites since 2009. Before then and to this day I have been creating custom LEGO model designs. My designs have won several LEGO contests. In 2005 I entered the first ever Junior Master Model Builder Competition at LEGOLAND California. I first won the monthly competition for the month of May with my model of a Mother's Day cake. I was then invited back to compete in the Ultimate Build Off where I won with my model of Skipper School. Part of my prize included spending the day with a Master Model Builder (a LEGO designer). Later, I also won the BrickMaster Landmark Building Challenge in the LEGO Magazine with my model of St. Basil's Cathedral.
I've designed everything from websites, to posters, to images, to games, to sculptures, to drawings.
