A peek at a piece I recently finished based on The Last Of Us, for a group show at Gallery Nucleus. The show opens September 27th, I’ll post the full piece then!
This was done in gouache, watercolor, oil charcoal, and acrylic.
I created a jacket illustration & spot artwork for Esther Ehrlich’s debut middle grade novel Nest, published by Wendy Lamb Books, an imprint of Random House. Esther also privately commissioned me to create four bird illustrations for her author website and promotional use. (Book design by Stephanie Moss.)
I have a mostly vegan diet, and do my best to be vegan with my other buying choices (clothing, cosmetics, etc), though I’m sure there are lots of things I overlook. There are countless health, ethical, and environmental reasons to use fewer animal products and be more aware of what goes into the creation of any products you buy. I try to live my life in a way that causes as little hurt to other living things as possible and be aware of how the money I spend impacts the world, and compassion towards animals is a huge part of that. I don’t like to get into social or political agendas overtly, but I do think that this subject is relevant to my art, because one of my hopes for my work is that when people see it, they become a tiny bit more aware of how beautiful and complex the natural world is, and more conscious of their own relationship with it. Thanks for the ask!
I use Fabriano Artistico Traditional White 300lb hot press paper for watercolor and gouache pieces! It is thick like board and I love it.
