from illustration to reality

It all started when I saw this instagram photo. The vivid colors got me and the shoes caught my attention right away. The whole thing is so beautiful that I got inspired to illustrate it. Illustrating the pretty moccasins was not enough though. I wanted to learn more...

meet Simone

It's Friday and though most girls enjoy a hassle-free-end-of-the-working-week day, my girl, Simone, is in a bit of a rush. She was up all night reading a book she can't put down so she over slept this morning. When she woke up at 9:30 am, she quickly made herself a...

my attempt at portraits

my attempt at portraits

I prefer sketching full body images but every now and then I try my hand at creating portraits and I like it even if the result is nothing close the the original--this does not bother me (yet) but what bothers me is the horrible scanned result. I tried tinkling my...

So here is my first post for this year. I created this illustration two months ago but because of the Holiday season, I never got around to posting it until now. The holidays took all of my time and doing some construction work in our basement followed right after. In...
