VCD – Character Design & Illustration


I am a character designer and illustrator, but above all I consider myself a storyteller. Creating characters and narratives that others can connect to, sympathize and identify with is ultimately what my work is about. Growing up with fantasy literature being a huge influence on me, the majority of my work focuses on a fantasy or mythological theme, as well as incorporating themes about mental health, trauma, and social equality. I work in both digital and traditional media, creating literary illustration, visual development, sequential narrative, and also art dolls.
