If you know me, you probably know how much I love the X-men. In particular, Nightcrawler, but I’m just about a fan of everybody. I’ve been going through old issues of Excalibur and was moved to try my hand at some fan art, which I did as a marker warm up. In case you … Read more
Fashion illustration time again! This was for a “street style” project, all about capturing fashion from people just living their lives. I decided to do something close to my heart: LEATHER AND CHROME.
To be honest, I’m a little late with the news, but hey, there you have it. But still, GET EXCITED! I know I am! Here, look at this nonsense, my postcard for the collection. I was really working with some amazing artists here (you should check out the postcard that included my character) and it … Read more
All from the first day of this drawing class – it’ll be interesting to see where it goes from here. By now, the time I’m actually posting this, I do have work from other days, all of which I think it making very slight but steady improvement. If only I could dedicate way … Read more
I’m starting to really enjoy gouache paints, they have such rich color in the end. Watercolor works very well, don’t get me wrong, but all that layering, I don’t have the patience for it.

I also love Nightcrawler from the X-men. I’m stating this now because it will probably come up later. A lot. I believe these were faber castel markers, … Read more
I really enjoy doing these more editorial fashion illustrations. These two are my favorites from the reams I churned out last semester. (The others will be collected and scanned, just much… much later…) Never been a big fan of the colored or polarized sunglasses look with my own fashion, but I’m loving the punch they … Read more
I”m starting to get really into watercolor, and fashion illustration. Two things that need way more practice. There are so many artists out there that use watercolors to such a huge advantage (I should really compile the list of artists I look at, that might be an entry farther down the line), I don’t know … Read more
I actually really like doing these colors studies by hand for whatever reason – these were for a project to redress characters in Mad Men, each scene following a particular color scheme. I like how these turned out more than I ended up liking the final project. Here they are for future reference!
Illustrations I did for an amazing childrens auxiliary Marine Science Textbook. Not just including science, the text books cover math, geography and probably ethics, it covers a lot, it’s very exciting.
