I really enjoy creating artwork that reminds people of dreams. I don’t always use the same style because I like it to represent the text of what I’m illustrating; but I always try to make the illustration have a certain intricate and ethereal quality. My process often begins with a small thumbnail. Or many thumbnails, as if often the case. I then take that small sketch and fully draw a larger sketch in pencil. I then ink that. Sometimes, that is the final step. However, I do sometimes take it into photoshop where I then do a value study, colour study, and final painting. I really love to tell stories with my artwork. Whether its a children’s book, a young adult novel, or just a solo illustration, I love to have my work tell a tale.
