These illustrations bring me back to my fine-art roots. After my years of photo editing and design work impacting the real world, fantasy has been a major form of escapism for me. I am able to utilize my eyes and hand skills from my day job to create visions out of this world.
Evaluating my process is at the core of creation for me. I have been animating works in progress for years; and, every time I study the GIFs I make these paintings, I find new things to improve upon.
Character design has become a passion that unites many of my skills into one final product. I have found so much joy in this work; I began to take commissions on various social media outlets. I believe there is a certain magic that only occurs during the collaboration between people with common passions. The connections I’ve made and the stories my collaborators and I have told through these characters feels more real than any fantasy I was able to think up on my own.
