The Summer Set

A follow-up to my last post, the 3-part summer beach series is finished! This was my way to get back into the swing of directing myself through a project outside of the classroom or freelance environment. It's a completely different feeling, and, I think, very fulfilling.

My website's gone through some updates, I've uploaded some new images and now four of my comics are available to read online!

cut-out beach scenes

This summer I'm focusing on doing a series of illustrations for more of an all ages audience, dealing with innocense and curious emotions, set in beach environments reflecting my stay in santa cruz. First came a series of sketches, which then led me to start building the scenes and characters piece-by-piece, drawing and painting on different sheets of watercolor paper and then collaging them together. Here's alligator boy without his background, and the first finished piece.
