Projects/Series

Earlier this year I decided to start making most of my illustrations/art projects into multiple part series in the hopes that it would help demonstrate my ideas more clearly. This practice has also challenged me to keep my style consistent while working on specific bodies of work. This gave me a sense of focus whilst creating. I’ve always been a huge fan of comic books and graphic novels and hope to start making larger and denser works soon, but at the same time I love pushing an idea big or small through a minimal amount of frames or a single piece of art. Hopefully with this new page I can merge those two things together and bring multiple forms of story telling to the table.

Here’s a fun little series I posted not too long ago which involves a bit of fruit and a whole lot of cheese:

Fruit and Cheese

Apple of Your Eye.

“If only I was the apple of your eye, that would be so sweet!!”

“I just wished we could’ve been the perfect pear one day, but things got rotten fast!”

Geometric Alliance

Eventually things will come full circle and each shape will have helped complete the puzzle:

-The triangle is known to be the strongest shape, but sometimes even it needs support from it’s friends. Rotate!

-Sometimes other shapes can help hold the circle in place. Keep the ball rolling but try to avoid the downhills. Rotate!

-Squares can help things stay even and balanced. Keeping the other shapes in line. Rotate!

-The pentagon makes sure it’s friends are safe, trying to protect and shelter them from multiple angles. Rotate!

Part 2 of my feelings of being nude series:

I always cared too much about the way my body looked but I’m trying to view myself naked like I do with clothes on, it’s more then a style but at the same time each persons is different and unique so say screw it to the people who decide to judge.
