Challenge 89: Scientific Illustration: Voyage of the Beagle

For our Scientific Illustration theme, I decided to go a slightly different direction with my subject matter. Instead of focusing on the individual plants, animals and specimens, I chose to draw a scene with the individuals that go out into nature to document and record. In particular, I was inspired by Charles Darwin’s journeys on the HMS Beagle. Here is a scene of Darwin sketching out in the jungles of Rio de Janeiro. 


Challenge 19: Calendar Zine- June

Hello there cyber world– I’m super stoked to be contributing with my fellow illustrator friends to my very first SC challenge. When Adela posted the Calendar Zine project, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to use a gig poster idea I’ve had in my sketchbook for ages. A combination of being partially obsessed with all things nature, road-tripping through the mountains of Tennessee, and listening to Fleet Foxes’ new album came together to make this illo. Hope you enjoy—


Challenge 45: Get Your Gif On: The Fall

Evening folks! For this challenge I wanted to do a character from one of my favorite films, The Fall. After sketching around I chose to depict the masked bandit ready to avenge his fallen brother. I had fun trying to figure out how to do the gun smoke and certainly have room for improvement and further tinkering around! I’m looking forward to keep playing with making more elaborate gifs in the future. Thanks for taking a look!



Project 14: Book Covers- Dr. Jekyll, Frankenstein, and Dracula

For the book challenge I chose to do pixel Kindle covers to three classic books that I felt all went together: Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, and Dracula. I had a pretty fun time trying out using the pixel textures as a means of illustrating and hopefully will be able to incorporate using it more in the future!
