Designed some arch-enemies. Here’s a schoolteacher vs. her cocksure pupil. The teacher is heavily inspired by a particular nightmare figure from my past, Ms. Zurcher. Seriously, a total nightmare.
Hey I made a fairy for Character Design. This is a little uncharacteristic, but pretty fun, and I don’t think I’ve ever used this color palette in my life.

Giving handlettering a shot. It’s pretty intimidating, takes forever, and I’m not sure yet how I feel about it. Maybe I’ll sleep on it. I super enjoyed ye olde time letters though.
I made some various silhouettes and features for Character Design. I’ve still got to make some feet too to complete the set, and I need to work on getting more variation
Here’s a little sneak peak of the first section of my year long thesis project. I’m making a 6 foot long scroll. I’ve been trying to figure out how I want to color the whole thing, and I’m pretty pleased with this result.
I’m taking a class in Character Design, so there will probably be a lot more lineups in the near future.
Here’s a set of characters I created that follow the classic team setup of such 80’s television shows as Voltron. From left to right they are the Princess, the Rogue, the Leader, the Kid, and the Bruiser.
My team is a bunch of young things that like to commit arson in the name of rebellion and anarchy. They all have their reasons for doing it, but in short, they’re bad people.
Doodlin in photoshop. I’m loving these really thin lines.
Last night Light Grey Art Lab’s show Great Personality opened! This show is about the science of attraction, and as a participating artist, I was asked to design a character for a fully functioning dating simulator complete with different expressions, outfit changes, and a pinup pose.
Seren is a hot androgynous troublemaker who prefers female pronouns, uses sarcasm and wits to keep people at a distance, and hides her sensitive soul under deep deep layers of cynicism. Her motto is “Lick your wounds in private.” She can definitely kick your ass.
You can download the first part of the game here (Seren will show up in a later part) and check out all of the other artist’s characters and the background art here. Everybody’s work is super sexy and incredible and definitely worth a look!
I just organized all my photoshop brushes, and now I’m trying to figure out a good way of working digitally, so I’m sketching old screenshots from movies. Everyday I fall a little more in love with black and white.
I painted Galadriel from The Lord of the Rings! This part is one of my many favorite passages, in which Galadriel gives Gimli three hairs from her golden head when he only asked for one. Slays me every time.
This piece will be showing in Gallery Nucleus’s upcoming show Out of the Shire! It’s an exhibition paying tribute to Tolkien and it’s opening this Saturday, Dec. 14th in Alhambra, CA. There’s going to be a ton of really amazing work on those walls if you can make it. Here is a link to the website!
