Lots of color explorations took place when creating this digital illustration. It was fun to test which color palettes worked best with the shapes, and why not give it some pirate flair!

A tribute to a legend. And a nod to all the younger siblings out there that were forced to yield playing Mario to an older sibling. I feel your pain.

Ryder approached us for a new album cover. He had seen our illustration work and enjoyed the style, we worked to portray Ryder in true form. The line work was certainly fun on this one.

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.

All projects completed in Adobe Illustrator.
