I'm glad Spring is here!

The Red-tailed Hawk was started 2nd year in college as an acrylic painting. By the time the background landscape was done, I ran out of time and never picked it up again. Recently I repainted it digitally. I need more practice with landscapes. This is my first time painting one digitally.

This Great Horned Owl was done in graphite first then digitally colored over.

Macy's HQ

Near the end of 2013, I worked at Spaeth Design in NYC. My primary project was to illustrate 6 figures that would be used to create a life-size, interactive book for one of the Macy's Christmas Windows at Herald Square. Each figure represents an important decade in fashion history. The first is 1890's, then the 70's, 1910's, 40's and the 60's. After a month of character designs, I illustrated these figures in a cartoony, whimsical style. 

Some of the sketches from the concept development stage are below.

Each figure is then split in 3 and interchanges with the other figures. Check out the video below.

Digital Sketches

A couple of my practice/master-studies from a while ago. All digitally painted focusing on emulating natural media.
