Here lies a collection of digital paintings that I've been working on over the years. Power has been featured in the "Wonderful Works by Women" art show at Nine Muses Art Gallery. Succulent and Lily of the Vine have been featured in a Cue Brand Collective show and are currently hanging in Sweet Mary's Bakery.
This gallery features some of my favorite posters that I've created for various events or personal projects.
Cut It Out
These pieces were based on the idea of paper cut-outs and layering. I really like the effect these give off.
This set of postcards was inspired by the Atomic Age which was popular during the 1950's. It can be seen in the use of simplistic, futuristic shapes (circles, lines, boomerang-like shapes) and font chosen. During this time space travel was a huge fascination and people were curious about how the future would look. I chose to illustrate how I imagine certain cities would look in the future through the eyes of someone from the Atomic Age.
A pastel palette was used to give it a softer look.
It's rare that I work in full scenes, but that's an area that I'm trying to build. I'll be adding more as time passes.
Acid Tunnels is a self-initiated project that I started because I needed something that challenged me. Doing repetitive and detailed designs have never really appealed to because of how long they took, but I'm learning to slowly love them and the way they turn out.
I came into this project being inspired by Mario Bros. and psychedelic drugs. I think I conveyed that well.
This particular illustration has been one of my favorites over the past couple years. I love keeping things simple and clean and this holds true to that desire. I added a bit of texture to stop it from becoming too flat and I feel that it turned out well.
The Great Adventure
This was a self-initiated piece that involved creating a story from elements that were suggested for me. The items were a llama, a burrito, and the Ice King's Castle from the cartoon, Adventure Time.
Blues are the major makeup of this palette and I added texture to stop it from being so flat. It's a wintery scene that is supposed to leave viewers guessing. What will happen next? Will the llama get his beloved burrito or will he fail?
Simple Life is a set of illustrations comprised of animals doing small things that humans would do, like going to work or picking a book from a shelf. My purpose was to convey that animals have a routine just as their human counterparts.
I chose to do it in a whimsical, playful style that would appeal to children.
H of C Minimalist Posters
This self-initiated set of minimalist posters was created after a binge session of the first season of the show House of Cards. I focused on the main characters of that season and tried to pull inspiration from their personalities and occupations.
I kept with red and black as the main colors because they're so striking, similar to the characters.
