Hawaiian Coral Reef

A painting of a Hawaiian coral reef. This was one of my bigger paintings I have done, 30x18in. Its made up of 4 sheets of plexiglass, 1 sheet of illustration board and a bunch of acrylic paint. I'd have to say I thoroughly enjoyed making this piece.

Sound of Thunder

Meant to be an illustration for an audio book on the iPhone/iPod of "The Sound of Thunder."

This illustration was required to be done 50% on the computer. That's the 50% that didn't turn out so well. I have a horrible tendency with digital work to make everything very dull and desaturated. Oh well. next assignment I'm definitely doing with paint.

The Young and the Restless

A painting for my illustration class. It is meant for a teen fantasy book cover.

“A girl in law school has spent the last few years of her life trying to mature into an adult. One day an unexpected fire breaks out in class. She takes the initiative to put it out with a near by fire extinguisher. Little does she know, the fire extinguisher has magical properties that won’t let her forget the kid inside of her.”

self portrait + robotic arm

This is a self portrait I made to express my worry that paintings for illustration where becoming a mechanical process that did not have any passion or meaning driving them. Thus the robotic arm.
But… I also love robots and robotic prosthetics so i wanted to paint myself with one x3
Good news is after I got close to finish I stated to feel more confident and passion and enjoyment in my illustration works again.
