Portfolio

I do a wide variety of artwork for art shows, commissions, and as a freelance illustrator. The following is a collection of my best work from these categories in some of the different mediums I like to work in.

Bob's Fan Art Submission

Bob's Fan Art Submission

This print was created for Fox’s Fan Art Crawl, a contest for a chance to be animated or featured on Bob's Burgers Season 8 Episode 1. I was a finalist in the competition and my design was featured in the episode "Brunchsquach" in the End Credits. It was created using Adobe Photoshop. 2017

Grandpa Remembers Winter

Grandpa Remembers Winter

Cover design for the children’s book I illustrated for Crimson Cloak Publishing company. I wanted the cover to feel like it was past and present at the same time. I also wanted to bring the focus to the center characters. Playing with color on gray scale helped me to achieve the desired effect. Created on Bristol paper with Copic Marker.

"Sis was nervous"

"Sis was nervous"

This scene is a page from the children’s book “Grandpa Remembers Winter” that I illustrated for Crimson Cloak Publishing. The snowsuit was a challenge for me because I had to find a way to create shape where there wouldn’t be. I loved the end result as it is true to clothing styles of the time, while still being fun and playful. Created on Bristol paper and Copic Markers.

"We all loved the kitten"

"We all loved the kitten"

This page is from a childrens book I illustrated called “Grandpa Remembers Winter”. The book takes place in the 1950’s and I did my best not only to capture the fashion of the era, but the feel as well. I wanted the reader to feel like they had just walked into a cozy home where this little kitten would be safe. The lace work is an original pattern hand drawn. Created on Bristol paper with Copic and Kuritake markers.

Dragon's Sneeze

"Dreamer"

"Dreamer"

“Dreamer” is my first 3D Paper Art piece. It was created for a Harry Potter themed art show at the Perky Nerd, 2017. I wanted to use paper to give the piece more depth, and while it isn’t my greatest strength, it was a fantastic learning experience and one of my favorite show pieces.

"Jane's Victory"

"Jane's Victory"
