Illustration was a big part of my life through college and for awhile I got away from it. I really want to keep working on it a little each day. Truth be told, nothing makes me happier than inventing a character and trying to give it a personality through its posture and expression. The ugly dog creature is inspired by my wonderful, dumb german shepherd.
I am working on a nature based series. I really enjoy spending time outside especially now that the weather is getting nice. I must say, the weeds in my yard are very inspirational.
I am using gold leaf/thread/napkins/scrap paper to build up the background. The gold leaf has a really nice, reflective quality.
