I enjoy designing characters and things with teeth. Weird, I know, there's just something about drawing teeth.
I also have a secondary style which is much more graphic and bold. It's all flat solid colors and more vector-like. This is good to have in my back pocket, so to speak, in case a project calls for it.
I've self-published two children's books through KDP; a short book about the pandemic from the perspective of a 3 year old and the other a cookbook for children complete with recipes, illustrations of food and every step involved. It was a great opportunity to really explore the characters and really understand the scope of work that is involved in creating such projects. These 2 were done traditionally (and colored digitally). It is where my digital style comes from; the use of charcoal on textured paper.
In working relationships I love nothing more than to be 100% transparent about everything. It is THE best way to work in order to ensure a solid understanding of what both parties are looking to accomplish and to build a strong and enjoyable experience collaborating.
Additionally, I earned a BFA in Illustration from Ringling College of Art+Design and was a toy designer for 9 years.
Hope to hear from you soon!(who ever you are :))
