Hey everyone! It's been a minute, but I swear I'm alive and still making art. The reason for my absence has been the result of being heads down working on completing my first self published book, which i'm so happy to say is finally done! The next step to bring this guy to life is to hash out the details for its Kickstarter campaign which will launch September 1st (tentative date). So stay tuned, I will release official info regarding the campaign soon. In the meantime here is a little teaser image of my main character, Peet! Thanks for taking a look and your continued support ❤πŸ“šπŸ–Œ #childrensbooks #childrensbookillustration #kidslitart #illustration #characterdesign #art #draw #drawing #painting #story #storytelling #artist #bigfoot #forest #illustrate #digitalart #instaartist #kickstarter #illustratoroninstagram #selfpublishing #author

Here is another painting I made from my Kauai trip. (Specific location was at the Kauai Coffee Company) This one took a little over an hour. I tried my best to keep that impressionistic feel.

My very good friend Jhierl asked me to draw him a young version of a Deviljho from Monsterhunter world on my Patreon page. Apparently the adult version of this monster in the video game is quite the beast so it was fun turning it into a large eyed, drooling, sweetheart.

As a special thanks for my Patreon subscribers, i’ll be doing requested illustrations for the next several weeks instead of the regularly scheduled polls. One of my patrons requested any Westworld character, so I went with Maeve :) So excited for the upcoming new season for this show! If you’d like me to illustrate a character for you, i’ll be doing special requests for my first 30 subscribers!

Here is a commission I painted for some friends of mine! My good friend Scott and his wife Jennie asked me to paint Poe and Bb-8 for their newborn baby’s bedroom! Such an honor that they would ask me to paint something for thier family like that. These types of projects are the ones that really make being an artist rewarding and fun. #illustration #art #digitalart #digitalpainting #painting #artist #childrensbookillustration #artistsoninstagram #theforceawakens #comission #starwars #poedameron #bb8 #xwing #disney #rebels #padawan #buddies #hug
