I am an illustrator first and foremost. Many of my concepts derive from a lot of pop culture, nature and just anything I come across that inspires me to draw. Whatever moment I am in can determine the illustration I want to paint and the outcome of the painting. After choosing an illustration I begin to live and breath the concept. The point of my life that I am at greatly helps me to decide what medium to use, canvas to paint on, and colors to use. Just like most artists, I pour my emotions and world into my work. When all this comes together I create until it feels right to call it a final piece. Then I decide on an appropriate title if it hasn’t come to me during the process. This is the method behind my work. I creatively conceptualize to free myself from overload.
The example below is of an illustration I did during my 2015 participation of Inktober. This illustration led to my acrylic painting you see below. This was completed this past September of 2016.
