Illustrator/Designer based out of Santa Cruz, CA
I specialize in art, design, drawing, graphic design, illustration, pen and ink.
I just watched a Skillshare video about vectorizing watercolors. soooo fun!
I've tried to bring the feeling of motion into my sketch. I like capturing street scenes and wanted to convey the gritty street alogwith the activity of the tourists and Londoners.
The monsters we create
A collection of creatures born from our impact and existance on Earth. This is a work in progress project, it doesn't yet have a name, but the story becomes more clear every day. Soon I will have more details about it, until then take care, this runner is taking a real shape and it's after you. He is the money maker, the greedy, the selfish buyer of unnecessary things with money he doesn't have. Sounds familyar?

Doodle cards printed with foil and metallic ink - year 1999! I used a desktop printer that could reproduce metallics / foils / spot UV. They don't make desktop printers like that anymore.

Another of one of my last doodles for the 100 Days Project. This is called "All in All" and it's directly inspired by All Apologies song by Nirvana.

This shambling creature haunts the fetid marshlands and is a protector of the birds and beasts who reside there. He's ancient, the last of his kind and a gentle soul who would much rather hide under the sticky mud than come face to face with a stranger.
Ink straight on Paper. Haven't drawn letters in a while, so there's more to come :) There's a short progress video on my Instagram if you are into stop motion magic fill ins haha
