They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Well, lucky for me, character design is my bread and butter! Backgrounds are the eggs, and story is that sweet ice-cold glass of Sunny D Orange juice that brings it all together. Of course, the menu doesn’t end there. I enjoy practicing in a wide range of artistic subjects, extending as far as scientific illustration, typography, and graphic design, all of which allow me to feed my obsessive attention to detail and desire to produce clean, accurate, and articulate work on both digital and traditional mediums.
However, nothing satisfies my creative cravings quite like narrative, and the unique accounts of those characters who lived them. It’s unsurprising then, that I am consumed by the great animations of Disney, Dreamworks, Ghibli and early 2000s television, as well as the incredible videogames that made their strides in the same era; breathtaking, fun, fantastical worlds and characters that once enriched my childhood, and now stand as the pinnacles of my artistic inspiration. While the happiness of others is my deepest wish and reason for creating art, it was these rich and colorful narratives which first sparked the flames in my heart; and I am determined to carry over that same passion and personality in all that I do.
I find the process of designing characters to be akin to having a long conversation; one that is deep and all-consuming. Possessing a profound desire to portray them in the truest light, and to provide them the freedom to exist organically in the space as only they can, I am compelled to ask the character as many questions as I can think of, to get to know them on a personal level; and with each answer they provide, I watch in awe as their face rises a little further out of the firmament of imagination, until a clear picture is formed for me to translate from my pencil onto the paper.
There is something extraordinary about human emotion, and our individuality, both mental and physical. It's what makes each of us, and all our creations so special, while at the same time allowing us to connect to all living things, and give life to that which had none to begin with. In my pursuit as an artist, I have sought to better understand, replicate, and in-turn manifest the complex beauty of this phenomenon in my characters, doing so through the power of expression, body language, and color.
