This is a book cover I designed for a personal project sketchbook! I wanted to play with a more focused color palette than I usually do and work on my environmental design as well as my character design skills.
My illustration work comes to life through mixed-media illustrations, mainly painted with watercolor, with colored pencils and ink added for depth and details. I have seen many artists over the years who use art as an outlet, and I admire those who do. Art has always been an escape for me, and my work reflects that. As a child growing up in the Waldorf school pedagogy, imagination was my greatest tool. I loved being able to visualize the people and places and creatures in the stories I heard, and as an illustrator, it brings me great joy to bring some of those to life on paper. These illustrations bring you on a journey to places unseen, from the inside of a mole’s hole to a forest utopia that might not be as perfect as it seems.
