So I started up a tumblr to showcase my work, I update it fairly frequently so If you want to take a look at what artwork I do on a daily-ish basis you should check it out. I will still come back here every once in a while to post but the tumblr will be the main place to see what I'm up to.

I have really been neglecting blogger in the past months but I'm back. It's been forever I've been really busy with my portfolio as well as some cool projects that will eventually wind up on here. There's also a ton of work sitting on my hard drive that I will be sharing soon.
Here is something I did recently for my computer illustration class. It was an open assignment and I just wanted to have some fun with color and light.
Also a couple months back I started putting up some speed painting process videos on youtube. They're more of an experiment than anything. I'm thinking about maybe doing some tutorials in the future, so hopefully eventually the channel will start picking up some more hits. Below is a character design video/speed paint thing I did for halloween. I went in with no plan and it took me a little bit over an hour. I really like the way my straight ahead work comes out as opposed to my more process-heavy stuff, so I'm working on leveling those two out.
I shall return!

So recently I finished up a bunch of illustrations that I based on some insane sleep paralysis experiences I've had recently. Sleep paralysis sucks, if you've never had it your body is asleep but you can open your eyes and look around to enjoy some terrifying hallucinations. I thought I would make the best out of a bad situation and take some inspiration from it. Forgive the writing, me no good at writing.
(click the images, these tiny thumbnails look like crap.)
As the city sleeps they are among us.
They slip through the the cracks in reality from their world into ours.
Some come to protect us, standing guard to our most vulnerable state.
Others join us in our dreams. Living vicariously through us, hijacking our subconscious.
Some follow us for a very long time, waiting for that one moment where we are at our most relaxed...
To take over.

Just finished up 3 illustrations based on Dante's Inferno marking the end of fall semester. These pieces are inspired by the amazing Robin Joseph. Now to relax for about a month before things start up again.
