VCD – Character Design & Illustration


Recently I have been living in an eccentric and colourful neighbourhood in Calgary which has inspired me to create lively environments and characters. In terms of techniques, I push texture and saturated colour into my illustrations constantly. I love working digitally but having my art appear traditional, so texture really helps with that. My favourite subjects to illustrate are posters, book covers and children's book illustrations. I have also been integrating type more into my work recently and absolutely love it.

Conceptual Book Design

This is a conceptual book design of Madeline Miller's The Song of Achilles. The story as well as the quote on the back all belong to Madeline Miller.

Canada Travel Posters

Inspired by my Canada 150 train trip, I decided to design some travel posters. These designs could also be used for brochures, stationary, and other little trinkets that tourists could purchase on their travels.

CFM Conceptual Posters

These two posters are conceptual posters that I designed for Calgary Farmers' Market. I am not affiliated with CFM and did these for a class.

Cult of Dionysus

A series of women that I have drawn to be the cult of Dionysus. I am infatuated with Greek mythology as it appears again and again in my works.

The Blue Below

A children's book that I have started to create. The story follows a young boy, Niko, who falls into some watery troubles but is luckily saved by a goddess.
