Replacing paint and brush with mouse and keyboard.
Drawing and designing for the digital world.
Adobe Illustrator has always been a favorite program of mine. The clean vector linework, the ability to make simple or complex illustrations, and the ease of building up multiple shapes has fit my workflow well. I'm a pretty good 'doodler' but not so good at drawing out complex images, so the ease and usability of Adobe Illustrator reflects my drawing style nicely. Through experimentation in that program and others like it, I have been able to develop skills in Digital Illustration which highlight my use of colors, linework, and overall composition skills. I've completed many vector based portraits that use different styles of illustration and methods of design and I feel this portfolio is a good example of my Digital Illustration work.
