Though I enjoy all the work I do, nothing for me is quite like the art of illustration. The act of taking something familiar and, for lack of a better word, illustrating it in an interesting way intrigues me; while I use this framework for most of my work, I think it applies most appropriately in describing my illustrations.
Here is a sample of the different illustration work I've done.
PROJECT Spotlight: Birds
I am endlessly fascinated with birds - generally overlooked in daily life, but each immensely different from the next and idolized figures in the artistic and cultural lexicons of human history. In this series of mini illustrations, I am depicting these birds as naturally as I can, with some stylistic flourishes, to show their inherent beauty.
PROJECT Spotlight: The souha Region
Inspired by the popular video-game franchise Pokemon, I have set out to create my own concepts, designs, and lore behind 108 original creature designs. The Souha Region, the made-up locale where these creatures live, is based on the southeastern US, geographically including Florida, Louisiana, the Bahamas, and Cuba. This gallery is a small selection of those designs.
