A piece I did for my BFA show coming up this Spring.

This illustrates my character, Norman, and I on the grandest day … really a combination of all grand days.

    Beautiful work. I love all the colour. Do you refer to a photograph while drawing, or is it all in your mind?

  • Thanks! I do refer to a photo for details and such, but I also manipulate the image a lot while I’m working to give the piece the feel that I want. I think it’s an equal balance of both.

    Beautiful detail, light and color. Love how he/she is on the brick island as if in the city, but has the whole forest to look at. Amazing drawing!

  • Thank you. =)
