VCD – Character Design & Illustration

Character Design / Illustration Major with Minor in Animation

My main art inspirations come from mid-century modern 1950s-60s style illustration and animation, as well as folktales and fairytales. I love drawing vintage fashion, particularly Rococo style at the moment, and my interests in 20th century advertising always gives me inspiration for particular aesthetics.

I love drawing silly lil guys and making people smile :3
