Illustration. Illustration is the place where my graphic design and fine art practices collide. Illustration can be personal, as some of these examples are, but obviously are most thought of as a tool for visually communicating a story for other applications — commercial and otherwise.
I am an artist who enjoys using different media, both digital and on paper or other "real" substrate. I often work from photo references, but understand that I have the opportunity to go beyond what the camera can tell us, accentuating color, pattern, line in order to create interesting images that really pop and engage the viewer.
