General Philippe Du Gros Nez III
General Philippe Du Gros Nez is a proud and serious man; He is terribly offended by people commenting on his nose and is boisterously proud of his accomplishments. Monsieur Du Gros Nez is from the Napoleonic era, living through the end of 18th century and into the beginning of the 19th century. I was inspired by art of the neoclassicism and romanticism eras to create him.
Not your average grandma!
Beatrice is a joyful lady and doesn't let her age get in the way of her fun daily life! She works at the local perfume shop and uses her scooter to get there everyday!
Jean-Patrick le charcutier!
I wanted to design a character that works at a French market. He is sweet and everyone loves him but people wonder... what happened to his hand? Who was he before becoming a charcutier?
The Three Martinis
Here are 2 pages of my sketchbook. I bring my sketchbook with me everywhere I go, hardly ever leaving my apartment without it. Leaving without my sketchbook is like leaving without shoes on! My sketchbook is practically a part of me; after all, the world is full of beauty and ideas-- what if I miss it? Ideas, moments, feelings: these are why I keep my sketchbook and pencil nearby.
3 Years and one Mystery...
This is an excerpt of a story of my own creation called Look Forward. Rook, the mustachioed man, has a disease that is slowly making him blind, already losing sight in one of his eyes. One day, he finds Shoohab, a funky little monkey who not only becomes his eyes, but his best friend. Behaving like a father and son, they embark on an adventure in research to one day find a cure for his disease.
A Window into my Artistic Diary
Each of the following pieces have their own feelings and histories, but on occasion, I think it is more powerful to allow the art to speak for itself. Rather than explaining it for you, I'm going to leave these stories up to you and your imagination!
Thank you very much for taking the time to look through my art! I wish you a good day!
