Done with my animystics piece, Solar. Really had fun with it. This piece will part of an upcoming exhibition show later this month - I cannot reveal the full image quite yet. Here’s a sneak preview though!

Hello everyone! I realized I posted this pretty much everywhere except on my blog. I’m very happy to say that I’ll be part of the upcoming Animystics show with Light Grey Art Lab in Minneapolis! The opening reception will be on April 25th. If you live near the area, stop on by! Some of the proceeds will be going to various rescues and animal humane societies. I’ll be exhibiting alongside some really talented folks.

ericaleev asked: Answer this privately if you like. That Momentum illustration is beautiful! By chance do you think you will ever do a large size print of it? It looks like a wonderful centerpiece for a room.

A little sneak peak of my newest personal illustration, Momentum. The picture in red is a quick mockup I painted in photoshop to help guide me along the way. With the graphite laid down, I can move onto the ink washes.
