Detailed artwork drawing on medieval, fantastic, and science fiction influences.
My drawings involve a lot of malabranche and women (particularly in intricate, impractical outfits), with a healthy dose of bird people, descendants of lizards, ravenous female airships, two-headed little girls, monsters, nuns, religious imagery, the Geometric City, the Geometric Palace, and machinery.
I like to use micron pen 005, metal nib fountain pen, murano glass fountain pen, ballpoint pen, sharpie, koh-i-noor woodless colored pencils, colored pencils, oil pastels, acrylic paint, pencil, and charcoal. I like to make both tiny, tiny drawings, and paint murals and decorations on walls.
