updates and copic drawing! 

Just updating on what I’ve been working on lately. This one is a harder page to do but it’s always worth the time. Also I’ve been working on my friends story boards and concept designs which I will upload once he has some links for me to direct you too. Either way I hope you all are having beautiful pleasant days. 

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!

Storyboarding for my book

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.

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.

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.
