Reindeer Knight

A knight concept for fun and armor practice. Much inspired by Dark Souls, Dragon Age, and Game of Thrones... I have a sneaking suspicion that this knight is female -- which is why I used reindeer antlers. (Female reindeer also grow antlers, and keep them longer into the winter than males.)

Magick Lives Forever

In an attempt to fight off the feeling that a little too much magic has gone out of the world this week, I drew this tribute to David Bowie (as Jareth the Goblin King in Labyrinth) and Alan Rickman (as Severus Snape from Harry Potter). We'll miss you, guys.

Riverwind

Several years back I did a piece of a Native American-inspired centaur named Whitefeather (she is the beauty on my branding). I promised I'd do another one sooner or later... and then I started going to Dawson... So it took me about 3 years to get around to this guy, but I think he's all the better for the wait!

Jazzoo Poster

A school project for a theoretical opening show for Granby Zoo, combining 'jazz' and 'zoo'. The prompt was broad enough to include any animal and any instrument, as long as the composition was interesting. I decided on a symmetrical composition with a raccoon perched atop a bass cello turning into a tree, and subtle details of keyboard stripes on its tail. Adobe Illustrator.

Biography

I was born and raised in Louisiana, before moving to Montreal. I recently graduated from Dawson College's Illustration & Design program, which taught time management skills, teamwork, and how to work with clients' specifications and deadlines. I am capable of working in several different artistic styles and am able to use many different materials and software. This range of skills helps me to determine the best method to use to meet my clients' needs. I love reading and video games, and enjoy incorporating our world's different cultures into my personal projects.
