The Spy

I can't believe I forgot to post this here!

Illustration done for the Netflix official, Visions from the Upside Down Stranger Things Artbook. This piece was inspired by season two of Stranger Things. I wanted to focus on the character Will and his integral role as the Mindflayer's unwilling agent. With his gradual possession driving the story arc of the season, his character became the essential bridge between the Upside Down and Hawkins. My goal was to create an illustration showing Will as the otherworldly, all-seeing medium between the two worlds.

This piece is in an artbook that houses a collection of over 200 illustrations inspired by Stranger Things. It's available for purchase online and in stores now!
Big thank you to Printed In Blood, Random House, and Netflix for this opportunity and for including my work.

I posted close-up details and pictures of the book page on my Behance and Instagram if interested.

Congratulations on this DA, well deserved. Is cool that it's "Stranger things" themed, yet it is awesome on it's own. I love the way you did the night sky and the pines. It's a great use of watercolour. And the composition is excellent as well, imaginative.

I haven't watched the second season of Stranger Things yet, but I really like this piece. It looks really haunting.

I didn't know what to make of this concept at first, but then read the description; and now it makes sense :D

I can't say much to "Stranger Things", cause I'm not a fan, but I, as always, admire your watercolour work in this. Not only how everything looks so clean and neat (no edges and such), but also how you used watercolours nature of blending to create the sky and trees.
