Steward of the Depths

Watercolour, acryla gouache and Photoshop, 13x18"

I'm embarking on a new series of illustrations based around a world filled with titans, both elemental and physical. This sea god roams the oceans in search of his kind, indifferent to the many ships that run aground his rocky head. Some humans follow in the giant's wake, diving deep in search of the treasures left in those watery hulls.

This piece is based on the likeness of my beloved boyfriend, who I've always thought looked like a perfect sea god. I've spent much of the past year working on art that fits another person's aesthetic, but getting to finally work on a personal piece I could have fun with was really refreshing.

If you're interested in seeing the process of this piece, you can find it on my Patreon. I put up a blog post, WIP photos, a time-lapse video and a voiceover that explains my process. 

South Pole Santa Claus Cover
This past year and a half I've been working to complete the art for a comic called "South Pole Santa Claus" - written by author Kizer Nix. We're finally finished and the comic is now available for pre-order on Kickstarter!

This image is going to be the cover for the comic, but there's a lot of fun art inside too :)


Hello lovely people, I have more good news! In order to simplify the process of people purchasing my prints, I’ve opened a Society 6 store. These are unlimited prints, and I’m offering a few of my illustrations on things like laptop cases. They’re printed on 100% cotton rag archival paper, but you can also get them on stretched canvas, or pre-framed. They come in a huge variety of sizes as well, so take a look and see if anything catches your fancy!

Take care, happy holidays!
