Below you’ll find my Illustration and Comic projects.


My illustration and comic projects are an exploration in poetry comics and illustrated stories. I'm drawn to poetic narratives and using abstract imagery to create mood and depth. Not every project will utilize the same tools, a mixed media approach will be taken to realize each story to its full potential. Whether it's illustrating a story, or experimenting with comics to present your narrative in a new light, I'll use the power of images and text together to illustrate your idea, story or brand.
