"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.

Back to Class

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 13, 2015, 9:11 AM

Tomorrow starts classes again; only one more year and I'll be done w@  For the longest time, it felt like the summer was dragging on, so at least being busy again won't be too bad (I hope).  This is probably going to be my last quarter with three classes, too; I hope to take a fourth for the next three quarters so I can graduate next November; I don't want to pay for rent for another 5 or 6 months if I don't have to.

I've also been more quiet on here, as some may have noticed.  It's a little mixture of falling out of love with dA, as well as personal problems and personal work.  My dog passed away about two weeks ago, and I still feel very empty.  I know it's going to hit harder once I'm at home and he's not there; I almost asked my mom on the phone the other day what he was up to because I ask all the time.  Luckily with some meds I started feeling a little better over the next few days, and last week I got a tattoo of a paw print in his memory.

As previously mentioned, I'm slowly starting to fall out of love with dA as well.  I've been working on other things, so I may check back every few days; I remember when I first joined I'd be on here 10 times a day.  Times change, I suppose.

More WIPs and some finished things are on my instagram, and occasionally I post on my Facebook page or art tumblr.  Hopefully I'll have more work this quarter to post.  I've mainly been working on watercolor landscapes, so some may be posted in the future.

Take care xx

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!
