"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.

Hey, guys!

Thank you so much for the birthday wishes and drawings!  I really appreciate it ♥

To say the least, I had a great 21st!  A friend and I went downtown to the Andy Warhol Museum to start the day; it was really interesting to see so much of his work, especially since I had learned a lot about him in my 20th Century Art History class.  It provided some helpful background information before heading to the museum.  The one piece that I really wanted to see - a triptych of skulls - was under construction, so only one was hanging, and you weren't really allowed to go into that gallery room.

Afterwards, we went to Perle for drinks!  I started off with a Bellini, and my second drink was Death in the Afternoon - it was a combination of absinthe, champagne, and a few other things, sugar cube and all.  To say the least, I've been trying to find absinthe bars in Pittsburgh and, to my disappointment, I was unable to find any.  However, this drink wasn't on their online list, and was on their menu in the bar, so I was really excited!  I felt like I was one of those famous late 19th-century artists and writers with their opium dens and absinthe haha~

 I also got Zephyrhant 's new art book!  It came with some beautiful prints as well.

Other than that, my summer class concluded a week ago, so I'm good to go with getting to work on my own for a while until classes start again!  I may be a tad busy going into my last two weeks at home, but once I'm back in Savannah, I'll have all the time in the world to do what I want.  I've got a lot to do on my radar, so hopefully I'll manage to work it all out!  As of late, I'm working on a character redesign, but from a more insightful concept artist-esque point of view with multiple designs before choosing the final style.  I also plan on experimenting with different media, and working with some books that I've had, so hopefully this will become the summer of change!  I really want to work on my professional edge to help garner interest with internships and future /hopeful/ employers.  I also still have a ton of photos to edit from Carrie Furnaces that I would like to also use for environment practice.

If you were hypothetically going to buy [a] print[s] from me, what would you choose? Please post a link/thumbnail in the comments! Thanks! 

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