Fantasy Art: Best of the Best

Best of the Best
Acrylics on Bristol

For Fantasy art, we had to illustrate a common theme in editorial illustration using fantastical elements. I chose to illustrate the theme, "Best of the Best" using knights and monsters. I had a lot of fun with this piece. Its always rewarding to go back to traditional medium after using photoshop for an extended period of time.

Words on Wheels and Party at the Funeral Home

Illustration for the Words on Wheels competition. Overall, I'm pleased with how it turned out. Poetry credit goes to 7th grader, Kevin Tyson! Thank you for writing such a fun poem.

Illustration about funeral homes in Florida hosting other events. I tried to imagine what a funeral home children's birthday party would be like. Here is the article this was inspired by...

Dr. Ooze and the Wicked Pageant Girl of the West!

Dr. Ooze is ready to see you now. Enter his office at your own risk.

This is my concept for a new version of the Wizard of Oz. In this version, the Wicked Witch of the West is a bratty, child pageant contestant who wants Dorothy's ruby slippers because they match her new dress. Instead of flying monkeys, she has an evil army of winged hover moms who will do anything to please her.

Meet the Hipster Loner

Often found eating alone in the dining hall.
Loves cats.


The natural habitat of the hipster loner, his bedroom.
