Book Illustrations

I correspond with authors, editors, and publishers to align my artwork with a book's vision. I consistently deliver long-term projects and meet deadlines—my elaborate, vintage-styled illustrations stage characters in vibrant scenes lush with rhythm, pattern, and movement. My works have adorned fantasy book covers, comic & graphic novel pages, and even the 70+ interior pages and cover of a gothic poetry anthology.

I collaborate with editors and publishers to ensure my comics meet editorial standards and the publication's voice. I engage readers and enhance texts through expressive characters, illuminative art, and tasteful humor. Past projects include educational spot illustrations for a nonprofit and art for Gordon Magazine. I regularly update and share cute slice-of-life cartoons and cat comic strips on social media.

Poster Art

I specialize in creating captivating, colorful, psychedelic-inspired poster designs that command attention from afar. I use vibrant hues and reference vintage aesthetics to make appealing pinup art and create eye-catching promotional materials for various acts and events. Aligned with the client's brand and goals, I strive to conceptualize ideas, craft custom illustrations, and curate color schemes and layouts that reach the target audience.

As a committed freelance illustrator, I collaborate closely with clients to create and refine artwork that perfectly complements their vision. Here is an overview of my typical artistic approach and client collaboration process.

The client and I correspond to discuss ideas, goals, payments, and timelines. From there, I draft 1-3 rough examples and seek any requested revisions.

I'll create the approved sketch on thick 100lb paper and gather client feedback. I'll adjust, based on the coordinated revision amount, until we agree on the final drawing.

I apply ink directly over the sketch or a blue line copy on 100 lb. paper, bringing the artwork to life.

Depending on the client's requirements, I complete the artwork using traditional methods with Copic markers or digitally coloring the scanned ink drawing in Photoshop or Clip Studio.

Once the artwork is approved, I prepare high-res art files, meeting specs and retouching as needed. Files are delivered via email or Google Drive.
