Hypnopompic Hallucination, worked in a bit

Hypnopompic Hallucination, 2016, In Progress Shots

My original character Azra, as you probably know him through a lot of the personal works I’ve created, struggles with a lot of byproducts of PTSD (Including a lot of anxiety and a variety of other mental tics and symptoms). One of those is struggles is insomnia. It’s more of a reluctance thing. As with anyone who

Monoprice Tablet Review & Brooke Portrait In Progress Shots, 2016

Often times I see a lot of illustrators (and a lot of friends!) who use such wonderful graphic tablet devices such as a Cintiq. I’ve always envied these but never really thought it was worth spending the money on one. When I started out in digital illustration, I worked strictly with a mouse. Once my

Ungezahmt First Capture

Ungezähmt, 2016, In Progress Shots

Often times I think of characters of mine who so happen to fall into the category of “vampire” as more of wild beasts. They’re more like animals than anything; they act more as nocturnal carnivores rather than insatiable blood lusting beings. This may lend a lot to the idea that these characters dislike being called

Neverending Sketch

Neverending (This Isn’t Over), 2015, In Progress Shots

You may recall this deck from my Decks gallery. It’s been there since 2015 when I created it, but I posted a lot of in progress shots to Instagram but never really posted it anywhere else. I just posted to Behance with it, so hey, why not share here, too? Here we go. I had

Filled in Sketch

Bisecting, 2016, In Progress Shots

This work was an interesting one and was a lot different from what I usually do. I started with this idea of two people making up the majority of a third person. I wasn’t sure how to go about it, so I started sketching some ideas. A big thing I had in mind was a

Anxiety, 2016

Anxiety, 2016, In Progress Shots

I’ve been really into coming up with highly detailed drawings lately, as you can see with works like “Decomposition” (2015), and “Neverending (This Isn’t Over)” (2015). For some reason, despite the fact that I can get fidgety working on these, I like putting in the effort and pushing myself to slow down. I also have

Azra Animation

Azra, 2016, Process Gif

While I was working on getting some sketches down for a new digital series, I decided I wanted to make sure I had something nice and new for 2016. I decided to draw a picture of my character Azra, similarly to the way I drew him in January of 2015. I started with a colored

In Progress Comic Book Cover, 2016

In addition to showing process gifs, I often post images along the way of how I start an image and what it looks like. I usually post these on my Instagram or Tumblr, but I thought I would share them here as well. I drew a quick thumbnail of this work in early January, and

Pinnochi0 Animation

Pinnochi0, 2015, Process Gif

If you follow me here or on social media, you know every year I curate and promote an artist calendar. Each year, we come up with a theme and then we draw something for each month based on that theme. For 2016’s calendar, the most voted on theme was “tales”, meaning fairy tales, folk tales,

Hunted Animation

The Hunter, 2015, Process Gif

Here’s an interesting one for you. This is more of a practice piece than anything, not really anything portfolio worthy. I started this piece just doodling on my tablet last year and liked how my gestural drawing came out, so I just tried to extrapolate from there. I liked the angle of it and the
