"I am a forest, and a night of dark trees: but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses."

I currently am a junior Illustration major at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

I quite enjoy macabre things & cemeteries, horror, movies, music, and coffee. The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde is my favorite book, and the Victorian Era is a large source of inspiration. In the future, I see myself working on book illustrations, posters and album artwork for musicians, concept art and character design, as well as freelancing. My dream jobs are to work for Tim Burton or Weta Workshop.

As of late, I am focusing on character development and storytelling, as well as trying to come up with portfolio pieces.

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 30, 2015, 2:34 PM


So I thought that I should start saving up for a graduation trip that I really hope to go on in January 2017; if all works out, I should graduate next November and then head back home until I am hired (or if the game company I visited wants to hire me!).  I'm trying to save $6,000 for a trip to New Zealand and Australia.  It is my dream to work for Weta Workshop, so getting to experience New Zealand and diving into the culture will be something very important to my newly-graduated self, I'm sure.  While I do plan to save up some of my money via internship work next summer, I'll need some help along the way!

Products and Pricing

These prints are available through my Storenvy, as linked below (just click on the picture!).  Want to buy a print, but not deal with Storenvy?  Feel free to note me, and we can go through there!  I promise I don't bite.

2 deviants said I need to figure out what prints I should make for a local con, and your feedback is really important!
