This is a series of portraits of critically endangered species. I wanted to bring attention to these creatures who are slowly disappearing from this Earth; and hopefully inspire many to donate and help the WWF efforts to save them.
Western Lowland Gorilla
This piece is a visual interpretation of the saying, "See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil".
Love Should Not Hurt
This poster was done for a domestic violence center in New Britain, CT. Prudence Crandall is a non-profit shelter for battered women, men, and children. They have been using this poster in their facility.
The bruise is colored purple because it is the color of domestic violence and "love should not hurt" is the unofficial saying associated with abuse.
A Step Back in Time
This advertising project was to do an ad for the new dinosaur exhibit in the New York Natural History Museum. The idea was to combine the past and present, however I chose to go a different direction. I wanted to take a step back in time. I drew a dinosaur footprint and reflected inside it is the night sky with a looming comet shooting across. This was a sort of eerie piece, to show the calm before the storm. How peaceful it was before that fateful comet struck the Earth, ending the dinosaur age.
America the Beautiful
Social awareness poster on oil dependency in America.
An informational poster about the crab Cancer borealis also known as the Jonah crab. It includes two orthographic views of the specimen, a microscopic view of the claw, and some information about the species.
This piece depicts how one can be in control of ones life, yet also be blinded to the unknown future and to what fate has in store for us.
This piece was shown in the 2011 SCAD Drawing Works Exhibition
An acrylic painting which was chosen for the 2013 Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Competition.
My Head is an Animal (Of Monsters and Men)
CD cover for the band Of Monsters and Men. Their current album is titled My Head is an Animal. The type at the bottom is the album name and the symbol in upper right corner is the band's logo.
Home is Where the Heart is
This illustration was inspired by an article about hometowns. The heart within the shadow is a visual representation of the saying, "Home is where the heart is" which I believe embodies this article.
Digital painting about the relationship between humans and nature.
Where the Red Fern Grows
Personally initiated book cover for the classic novel Where the Red Fern Grows. I chose to use the iconic image of the red ferns as inspiration. Between the two dogs I formed a heart to show the love and commitment of the two characters.
