Trillia is a mermaid character I’m developing for younger readers. She goes on a quest for ancient artifacts in order to save her village and her family. This concept art explores a potential book cover design.
Trillia is a mermaid character I’ve been developing for younger readers. She is questing for ancient artifacts in order to save her village and her family. These three images were part of an art challenge to tell a simple, self contained story about discovering the “silver lining” to one’s troubles in just three scenes.
This mischievous kitsune, or fox spirit, is on its way to have some harmless fun tricking humans in a nearby village. It probably can’t make too much trouble, since it’s only powerful enough to still have one tail so far.
An assortment of non-traditional mermaid characters that were created for an Instagram challenge, each based on multiple random prompts drawn from an idea generator. Particularly difficult to include were concepts like “hoop skirt” and “rifle” but I found a way!
A series representing the 12 traditional birthstones as unicorns, with character designs displaying the typical characteristics associated with their respective gemstones.
These were originally created for a “Junicorn” challenge on Instagram. They are available on a variety of products in my Redbubble store.
Personal project: Illustrations based on the book “Howl’s Moving Castle” by Diana Wynne Jones. Drawn with ink and painted with watercolor, with digital touchups.
Cover Illustration for the short fantasy story, “Why,” written by Maggie Allen for author Janine Spendlove and published by the creator-run Silence in the Library Publishing as part of a Kickstarter backer bonus. The story is a bittersweet character study that takes place in Spendlove’s “War of the Seasons” fantasy universe. I worked with both Maggie and Janine to make sure I captured the style and spirit of the characters and setting.
