Edward Norton

Creating a celebrity portrait is no easy task. I learned this when I decided to attempt a portrait of one of my favourite actors, Edward Norton. His recent role in Moonrise Kingdom as Scout Master Ward completely captivated my imagination. After sketching over 50 studies of his face, I finally came up with one that I was happy with. I tried to capture that same vintage, yellow, filtered look that Wes Anderson achieved in the film.

Good Morning Summer

The sun beamed through my window for the first morning in months and it was like summer had stopped by to say good morning. The feeling could only be described as being embraced by a loved one who has been gone for what feels like forever. SUMMER IS ON THE WAY!

Mapped Out

There is something completely inspiring about seeing and hearing stories of expeditions and the people that push their mind and body beyond the limit to achieve their goal. Constantly breaking the boundaries of human possibility and survival. They range from treks through the hottest of deserts to ice climbing the coldest peaks. It's the diverse nature and storytelling attached to expeditions that inspired this illustration.
