Follow me on Instagram!

Haha, not really... But it's over on Instagram that I've been posting a lot of my latest art and stuff. I just find it too convenient to sketch a little something on my phone and immediately post it to Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. On that note, I'll give this blog a bit of an update with just a few highlights from the past few months.

You might notice that some of these sketches are symmetrical, and that's because they were done using the mirror function on my 4.7" HTC 4G LTE screen in the SketchBook Mobile Express app. And the funky filters and fake depth of field are from the Instagram app itself, because in reality all of the sketches were done on the exact same grayscale background.

Right now I'm in the midst of working on my daily Inktober sketches, which I'm also posting on my IG account, and I'll probably compile a bunch for another blog post in a little bit.

Either way, thanks for looking!

I had a spot of freelance working for a friend and it was a really great experience. He commissioned an illustration for the cover of his Young Adult Fiction novel. The book is self-published, and you can find it on the Amazon Kindle store at

I posted some of the process shots below. I built up the layers gradually, working in a methodical, iterative process, and trying to involve the client as much as possible. It was altogether a really fun, rewarding, and educational project!

Zbrush Sketches

Time to clear off the dust on this blog! I've been doing some speed sculpting exercises (about 30-40 mins) and I wanted to share some of them. I've also just started uploading some of the time-lapse videos to Youtube. I would love to hear what you think! You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Social media everywhere!
