We Have a Philosophy

Been wanting to share this for a while. I was quite happy to get a call from Transistor Studios to assist with concept art for a Sargento commerical (this was back in my freelancing days!). These were type panels that would be cut into blocks of cheese. Unfortunately, the client ended up going with a different concept. But […]

Alphabet

While I am quite aware that it is common to do an alphabet series, I’ve never done one myself. So I figured I probably should, and that it would be a good exercise in type. I also decided that it should be done in mostly watercolor since I always like to experiment there. Often times […]

Overheard The White Stripe’s “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground” at work one day which inspired a sketch…   Then an edited sketch/traced copy for painting…   Here’s a nice sneak peak in a fancy angle for funsies…   And here is the final result. Worked to keep the painting as sweet and sophisticated as […]

The BF and I have long been wanting to collaborate on a project. Just kinda makes sense, right? A writer and designer/whatever else I am. We started with the concept of doing a comic or graphic novel. But not a traditional one. More inspired by 30 Days of Night or Arkham Asylum. I get disappointed […]

A Deep Slow Panic

A Deep Slow Panic

So those who know me understand that since the tender sweet summer of my 14th year going on 15, I’ve had a pretty bad crush on everything AFI. Though it has possibly wavered in presence throughout the years, has always been lurking around my aura to some unhealthy degree. Like, I bought 7 copies of Decemberunderground […]

What I used to do at work when I had time

I was going to title this “What I do at work when I have time” but alas, slow summer days are gone. Anyways. If there is a day where I find myself not so busy I use my time to collect inspiration on Pinterest and end up sketching one thing or another. Usually it is type […]

Darker, Now

So the BF has been wanting us to do a project together, possibly of the graphic novel variety. The subject matter would be somewhere within the horror or mystery genres.  I am into it, especially when he pointed out 30 Days of Night as an inspiration. I’ve also been doing character drawings for an ongoing […]

So about two weeks ago I decided to address the fact that I didn’t like certain things about my new desk space. So I re-organized it and came up with this: The BF requested cork boards to pin his notes on for his writings, so I took a few myself to pin some visuals over […]

Month of May

Ok, so I’ll be the first to admit since moving and working full-time I’ve not had as much time or made as much time to work on personal projects. I’m not dead yet, though! I have been doing some small sketches and trying to fill up a book with type. I finally got myself a […]

Lovely Creature Pt. 4

Lovely Creature Pt. 4

Welcome to the epic conclusion of the Lovely Creature project!!!!! Ahhhhhhhh! Anyways. Here is the ending which depicts our creature being captured by the desert and suggestively dying, or as I have interpreted it, turning to some sinister side to never come back. Enjoy!   This is the final spread so I wanted to go […]
