The Black Swan

I wish I could have gotten this piece done before the film premiered, but it just wasn't possible. I actually HAVE YET to see this film, but I was so intrigued and mesmerized by the trailer, I had to do an illustration. I mainly wanted to base the imagery on the idea of professions that push human beings beyond their own capacity.

The whole idea of the Black/White swan being played by the same ballerina, having dual personalities, is such a beautiful concept!

Halloween Animation

I apologize for the lack of illustration updates here! Holiday season means I get bogged down with a bunch of stuff at the 'ole job on top of finding gifts for family/friends. I also have a new holiday postcard being printed as we speak.

Here's a lil animation I did a few months ago for Halloween. Back-story: I work full-time creating art assets and Flash animations for a game on Facebook. This was a wraith/banshee art asset that you can obtain for yourself in the game during October. This is what eats up most of my time but I still somehow manage to go home every night and draw. I think animation has definitely opened up a bunch of new ways of thinking for me!
