Here is a fancy witch to celebrate having a new tablet ( and Harry Potter/ Jo Rowling’s birthday too ) Who could go wrong with that bird hat, right?  I’m forever on a quest to push my paint application to a stronger place … One step forward 


I created this short  narrative a couple months ago, but I finally feel ready to share it with you. Despite its length, making this was a laborious process and took me quite some time to put together.

(media: charcoal, graphite and digital)

This story is personal to me, but you can interpret it whatever way you please. 

 Bernadette the Brave

Bernadette gets lost and scared in a crowd when life is too much. She imagines that the swarms of people around are a forest of trees to cope.

As she walks through the imagined trees, she sees they all have unique faces like the people in the crowd.

Bernadette comes across one in particular with a doorknob. It beacons to her with a golden light. She opens the face and climbs inside.

There she finds a golden world. 

This world is wonderous, as if it was made just for Bernadette. It is a place of serenity, safety curiosity, and beauty. 

However, back in the forest of faces, danger awaits. Another has found his way into Bernadette’s mind. The danger wields an ax and finds the tree with the golden world. 

As he takes his axe to Bernadette’s tree, everything within her world splits, including her body. But from her body comes the source of the golden light. Bernadette holds the power to fight back.

This is your world. You may be small, and It’s okay to be afraid.  But know that when fear is crippling and invades your heart, you hold the ultimate power to fight back and conquer.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted work, but I’ve been working (and playing) none the less! Sometimes its important for my creative process to not post as much on the internet. I find it valuable to take some time to develop without receiving outward validation. However, I love sharing art and I love all of you. Everything has it’s time. 

My latest illustration is “bat rider” drawn in ink. Although a very laborious process, I find inking incredibly calming and melodic. It was also nice looking back on my pictures Paris to find good window reference.

These are some fashion designs I recently created, inspired by the dresses of Queen Elizabeth I of England (one of my personal heroines.) I wanted to play with the concept of being a modern queen defined more strongly by your ideals than your sexuality, while still feeling attractive.

And here we have Roald Dahl’s four famous brats, Veruca Salt, Mike Teavae, Augustus Gloop, Violet Beauregarde and our hero of course, Charlie Bucket. Reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with my Mom is one of my favorite childhood memories, and the memory inspired me to so some character designing! I wanted to experiment with only using graphite drawing and digital color, aiming for a flatter more textured storybook feel. Overall, it was a fun prompt to work with!

I am proud to say, that this year, my Illest of Ill poster design submission got selected and is going to print! Illest of Ill is an annual themed show at my school, and this year the theme is “Twisted Fairytales,” hence, Sleeping Beauty. You can check out the official blog for the event here. I am pleased with how this came out in a short amount of time I did it in!

I’ve always loved that silly old macabre tune,  the “Hearse Song”… It an odd one for sure!

“Don’t you ever laugh as the hearse goes by,
For you may be the next one to die.
They wrap you up in a big white sheet
From your head down to your feet.
They put you in a big black box
And cover you up with dirt and rocks.
All goes well for about a week,
Then your coffin begins to leak.
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle in your snout,
They eat your eyes, they eat your nose,
They eat the jelly between your toes.
A big green worm with rolling eyes
Crawls in your stomach and out your eyes.
Your stomach turns a slimy green,
And pus pours out like whipping cream.
You’ll spread it on a slice of bread,
And this is what you eat when you are dead.”

This is, I think, my most reblogged post.

And, it had to be! This pumpkins are the creation of the amazing and talented Audrey Benjaminsen. You should follow her and enjoy her work!
