Illustrations Adobe Photoshop & Adobe Illustrator
I wanted to create something unique, in an ancient setting, styled in a fantasy-like way; so I decided to illustrate a dragon using Photoshop's pen and brush tools. I incorporated my style of fine pen lines and solid colors, but used shading with the brush to give the two-dimensional graphic more three-dimensional life.

These are watercolor portraits of my two cats, Queen Smoki and Admiral Toki. The cats were physically drawn with a felt tip pen, and Toki was painted in with blended watercolors. I added effects and frames around original drawings using Photoshop.

Sometimes maps are more than just a functional tool; they can be a work of art! I wanted to create an illustration of the world, that featured antique elements, transcended into appealing art for the modern eye. This piece was done in Illustrator, using pen and brush tools.

As some of you may know, I have a fondness for goats, and am often oddly inspired by them. This piece is a dedication to my music. I drew this in Illustrator, using the brush tool alone.

Game of Thrones is quite possibly my favorite TV show of all time. That being said, I entered their art poster contest! This is the poster in the making; stay tuned for when I reveal the final poster, before submitting to GoT.

I'm deeply inspired by the fashion, furniture, styles, and culture of the 1960's. Here I've illustrated a poppy flower, styled in a Warhol-esk pop art, clean minimalist, and modernized-retro manner. For this retro-inspired, Japanese tattoo-type piece, I used the pen and brush tools in Illustrator.


3D Graphics Cinema 4d

This is a 3-dimensional pokeball, modeled in Cinema 4d, and made to look as if a window or light is reflecting off the surface. Looks pretty realistic, almost like you can reach in and "catch 'em all", eh?

These ads feature shots I took in the mountains with model, Naomi Sato. She is wearing pieces from a collection by Goat Amphibia Apparel, a retro, vintage, and eccentric clothing & fashion design company I ran last year. It featured some swimsuit designs I created, and came equipped with a website, where I sold fashions I designed and sewed myself, along with other vintage apparel. Featured in these photos is a swimsuit design I created and tailored.

This is one of my personal favorites. I shot this in downtown Redlands at the perfect moment as a cowgirl boot scooted up the back staircase of an old movie theatre.

Here's a moment I captured of my adorable kitten, Maybee (named after my favorite Arrested Development character). In the background, there's a portion of some DJ equipment, which I thought was appropriately placed within the photo, considering the name of this photo is "Cats Like to Scratch".

These are the beautiful tulips planted in front of a gorgeous mountain cottage in the California national forests. I snapped these photos for my clients' bed and breakfast, and also built their website to advertise and market their lovely place.
