Heartfelt Heroes

My art is rooted in traditional, illustrative drawings capturing different characters, scenes, and ideas floating about my head. I primarily utilize various inks and alcohol markers to form these unique personalities each of my pieces seem to partake. I observe how each aspect will affect the scene but realize what the audience may take away from each work I may display.

I consider the tiniest details in my work from the various contrast colors, the appearance of character interaction, even the audience’s understanding of the laws in good and evil. In doing such things, I begin to create a world that defines the extraordinary qualities in people even if things are not as positive as we could hope. No matter where you stand, I intend to remind people how amazing they are and what they can do despite the worth the world sees in them. My inspiration comes from my own experiences as well as the animation industries I grew up with as a child. Each character is a part of me to express a part of me that my words can never reach. Through their world, I hope to display that even as someone who is not considered normal in a dark world, you can still do incredible things.
