The Crux

A few years ago my brother took me rock climbing for the first time and it ignited something in me I had never felt before. A mixture of fear, adrenaline and accomplishment. I'll never forget that feeling. Now, a few years on, that same passion I felt burns brighter than before. My dream is to climb some of the rock that lurks in desert regions of America, but until then, I guess I'll just draw myself there.

8-Bit Viewer

After watching Wreck it Ralph I got inspired to do some 8-Bit art of my own. It got me thinking how cool it would be if you could just hold up a screen in front of you, turning everything around you into an 8-Bit video game. Even cooler, a game that you could play! That's when I decided to put my idea on paper and this was the result.

Gatsby Sketches

I decided to post a few more Gatsby inspired studies up for everyone to check out. I couldn't just stop at one. The amazing elegance in the eyes and hair of the 1920's would not leave me alone until I put them down on paper.

Baz Lurman's recent rendition of The Great Gatsby completely captivated me when I watched it on the big screen. Having never read the book, I found myself on the edge of my seat trying to unravel this series of mysterious characters. The amazing costumes and colours sent my imagination spinning with excitement and I just couldn't wait to get home an draw what I had seen. This is the first of a few Gatsby inspired illustrations I have been working on.
