flourish ~ warmth by the pier

Illustration completed for my thesis class for an article about the fashion brand Hollister. I decided to take a slightly different approach with this piece. I wanted the final to act as a T-shirt design, as well as an illustration that could accompany the article. I completed a second, bitmapped version of this piece to act as the T-shirt design.

Jewelry Design Side Project

As many of you know, I have a great interest in fashion which is shown in the majority of my work. I'm starting to branch into creating actual items to be worn.

I'm currently creating and selling handmade jewelry. A selection are currently for purchase as a fundraising effort toward our fourth year grad show. I have an Etsy account already made to sell these creations.

They are created using silk, wire, and recycled objects. They are within' the $15-20 range, so very affordable and environmentally friendly at that. In addition some are supporting not only my grad show year, but my entire cohort. If interested please contact me.

I'll update with the Etsy account as soon as items are listed.

Digging Deeper

Narrative assignment based around the concept of "digging deeper" within' ourselves as a theme. I chose the moment when I came out a couple of years ago because it was a very profound moment in my life. It's personal to me but I really wanted to share this side through my art. If I can help just one other person with accepting themselves then that's all that matters.
