Updates on the picture book!

Hello lovelies! It’s nearing the end of senior year so plenty of things have been hectic within the past month, I’ve recently done a presentation for the True North Youth and pitched to publishers as part of the Salisbury Writers Festival! Currently waiting on replies and planning some marketing plans for the book,  however struggling under school sorry for the lack of updates! However I have some images to share of the concepts for “What If”

May happiness be with you all!

Sketchbook updates!

Hello! Been rather inactive lately due to senior year as well as doing intensive design classes and working on a folio for my pitch to the publishers! As part of the SA Writers festival I will be pitching my book idea in three weeks therefore working on colour concepts.

I hope you all have enjoyed your break and may your world be filled with sunshine!

SACE Art Show Interview

Sorry it’s been a month since you’ve gotten any updates, life has been quite a hassle lately but you’ll be glad to know I’m beginning to get back on track after all my tests and assignments! For now here’s the video I partaken in for the SACE Art show.

This was from the Meet the Artist afternoon and have been very fortunate to partake in this afternoon. I hope everyone is having a lovely day today and may life bring you happiness!

This video is of me explaining the process I had taken to create my art piece for the show, it also looks at the motivation behind my work and the symbolism i incorporate into my artwork.
