This illustration was published in a local Charleston, SC magazine in 2009. I did this at the very end of my senior year of college. It was a spot illustration for an article about building a water treatment plant. One side of the argument was preserving nature, while the other side argued for better drinking water.
An old piece back from my college days. Not all of my artwork makes it into my portfolio. That is suppose to be a selection of my best work. Sometimes rainbow shark here makes it in there, sometimes not.
I liked this assignment though. We were required to do an illustration with a shark, but had to use a warm color theme.
Done for this week’s Illustration Friday theme of ocean. I’ve been following Illustration Friday forever now and never have done a piece for them. Guess I can’t say that any more. Also I’ve always wanted to do a circular piece.
A self portrait. A friend gifted me a scarf and a Venetian mask when she returned from a study abroad in Italy. One night I decided to play with the two of them and this was eventually born. One of my first ventures into mix media process of water colors, color pencils, and acrylic washes.
Check out the process of this being made:
An older piece done for the Concurs D’ Elegance and Motoring Festival. It was a bit of a contest to see whose image would be pick for the official poster. I didn’t win, but there are a few things I still enjoy about this.
Somewhere in the darkest night
Peace will come, as the spirit flies
As you weave a spell by another name
Snow falls whith the summer rain
Then I will come to you my love
Whith the passing of the days
And I will set you free each time
Your heart is bound in chains
Innocents and wiser men
Will somehow be the same
And you and I
Will take our place in time
We’ll find a way to fly
Far beyond the crystal sea
I can hear all your whispered dreams
And the endless signs of the ones who love
They live on in the stars above

Done for an old monthly challenge by the Children’s Illustrator online group. The challenge was to illustrate a song and went with the above.
