"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 an Illustration sophomore 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 job is to work for Tim Burton, even if it was only on one film.

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

Emergency Commissions!

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 31, 2014, 6:32 PM

Hey, guys!

o, it's nearly university time again, and I'm in a little bit of a bind.  I usually transfer money from my savings account if I need more cash, and within the past 10 months, I've transferred [and pretty much spent] nearly $2,000.  Eeek!  I'm opening emergency commissions to replenish the stash since I have to pay for my own food this year, along with supplies and gas!  I've applied to 7 different places, but, as life goes, none of those are guaranteed.

My goal is to make $2,500 to replace what has been spent, plus a little more!

I appreciate any and all help!
