VCD – Character Design & Illustration


I'm Ashley and I'm an illustrator and character designer based in Calgary. My biggest inspirations are nature and animals and I love everything spooky and creepy. I'm continually trying to combine those two things to create work that is interesting and whimsical.

Crescent Woods

Visual development for a spooky, ghost infested town where all the residents are hiding a few skeletons in their closet.

Dracula Redesign

A new take on a classic book.

Sketching in Paint

An experimental project where I created a new small painting every week for a whole semester. I wanted to play around with colour and composition and mark making.
