a selection of drawings

I like pencils and pens; have a love-hate relationship with paint; and am learning digital art. my favorite subject is faces, particularly female faces—but nearly everyone I know says they associate me more with landscapes and animals o.o that must be because I rarely send anyone a random face in the mail.my favorite art books on the meaning of art are Adorning the Dark, The Artisan Soul, and Art and Faith.


some designs

there's nothing like tweaking the margins for hours, in my opinion at least. nothing brings out my perfectionist like a good spot of graphic design (especially websites). I love it but I also stress hard about getting it just right. here are some Instagram grid designs I made for @tcksforchrist (where I'm resident designer), a brand identity kit, and some pages from Levatio's Studio Ghibli issue.
