Drawing and illustration was my first love of the arts as a kid. As I got older, I moved into different mediums, but after becoming a dad and seeing the world that my little boy's eyes, I rediscovered illustration as a way to tap into my inner child and explore more whimsical worlds.
Animal Alphabet Series
My Animal Alphabet series is my newest project and still in the works. I started with spelling out my son's name ROWAN and I have working through every letter since, slowly but surely. Besides the actual letters themselves (which is the typeface Eina 01, for anyone who is curious), everything is hand-drawn with a stylus on a tablet. Every element in each piece starts with the corresponding letter, even down to the name of the color of the letter itself. These are available as prints in various sizes in both paper and canvas and can be used to spell out words, names or initials, or can just stand alone independently.
Below are a few various illustrations exploring different subjects and styles.
