VCD – Character Design & Illustration

Hi there I’m Slack, a character designer and animator who works in all things weird and whimsy. I use a range of mixed medias to communicate complex ideas through storytelling and expressive visual styles. Im inspired by finding magic in the mundane and the ways we create meaning in an ever expanding world of beauty and horror.

Wightjaw Concepts

Wightjaw is a project I've been developing for the past year to challenge myself to develop a world using unconventional mediums such as collage and photomanipulation.
It is set in a region of the same name where cryptids, old gods and anthropomorphic folk all live together in a chaotic mess of otherworldly absurdity. Blurring the line between the humane, divine, and monstrous to explore existential themes like trauma, perception, and identity in the face of casual cosmic horror.
