"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.

Winter Break + Future Plans

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 23, 2015, 8:17 AM

Time for winter break!

My classes ended this past week, leaving me with only one year left to go!  Woooo!

I've been working more on landscape-type drawings for my Editorial class, but as a whole, I think they're some of the strongest pieces to come from one class.  I may post some in the future; they're just really different from my usual body of work on here.  I also intend, though, to remake some of my older works from high school to use in my portfolio as well, so that should be fun, and I should be able to upload them on here as well.

I also intend on creating a professional website and a process blog, so stay tuned for that!  More than likely the process blog and my Facebook page [which you can find in my little journal navigation bar in this journal] are where I'll mainly be uploading.

Happy [early] Thanksgiving to all!

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!

Thank you very kindly for the llama!... also I can't help but mention that your username reminds me of the Disney song from the Haunted Mansion Ride "Grim Grinning Ghosts"... no idea if you were going for that, but I thought i'd mention it because it gives me a chuckle every time i see your name... also really love your Tolkien inspired art.
