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!

CDW Masterclass with James Paick and Kevin Chen!

During the holidays I was fortunate enough to be hard at work learning from the masterclass with brilliant artist James Paick and Kevin Chen. It was an amazing experience learning about environments and various unlearned skilled of photoshop from James and intensive study of figure drawing from Kevin Chen! Here are just the few things I did during the classes but I have many more notes from the class.

First ever picture using photo-manipulation with the brief being an old city in the desert. The photo isn’t highest quality due to low res references.

Water Shed art prize! 

Hello lovelys! Due to unforeseen circumstances adding to the stress if my studies /final year of secondary schooling/ I have been unable to maintain my daily digital sketch but hopefully once I get back into the gist of my studies I’ll begin to upload some character designs. Anywho~ Although I didn’t win the competition I was awarded the highly commended and I am very thankful for that. So now I can finally show you what I’ve been working on! 

Hope everyone has had a good holidays and wishing everyone some warmth in Australia. Have a wonderful night!

Hello lovelys! How is your evening doing?

Currently working on a character rather than a landscape today, but landscapes will resume after this piece. Theres a bit more to her design than this but you’ll just have to wait till tomorrow! This are looking a bit busy so I apologise.

Have a wonderful day and may sunshine and rainbows enter your lives.

every-two-days-ish daily digital painting!

It’s been determined that with other work that needs to be done at home it is extremely hard to get these out everyday, holiday break will be soon so hopefully I can keep up in the two week break. This piece is called biology gone wrong, and features my current favourite cabbage head guy!

Hope you’re all enjoying the week and may happiness overfill within your lives!

The progress of page one and two of my new picture book! 

Good afternoon to you all! As some of you may know I am a selfpublished author illustrator and am currently working on my next project! There are some progress pictures of my designs of page one and two~ As i continue to do colour experiments I hope to find some support with this next project as I continue to keep you posted page by page! Each character and scene is designed to suit the story and takes lots of time to get the appearance and style of the book.
