Portfolio of Artwork and Illustration

 

ILLUSTRATION WORK

I always begin each illustration with a pencil and paper, scrawling down notes and thumbnails until an idea clicks. I like to experiment with different materials; however, I always start off with traditional media. I mainly work with an assortment of acrylic paints, ink, colour pencils, watercolours, and gouache. Everything ends up being scanned and sometimes I incorporate additional painting in Photoshop.

 
 

THE COFFIN COLLECTION

Hand-painted miniature wooden coffins that each contain a unique charm and hand-written scroll. The scrolls are inscribed with an original poem that tells the story of each different coffin.

 
 

PAINTINGS

Most of the paintings shown here were done on canvas or canvas board and were painted with acrylic paints. Some are a mixture of India Ink, acrylic and watercolour or gouache.

 
 

SKETCHBOOK ART

Since I was a kid, I always kept a sketchbook or journal. Over the years, I've continued to completely fill up sketchbooks with paintings and drawings each year.
