I love Ourit Ben-Haim’s series of photographs of people reading books in the subway—partly because I relate to it, and partly because the portraits are of people whose heads are some place else entirely. They’re almost not even really there, they’ve been transported in a different way.

Late last year…I took a chance. I decided to include my gallery work in my illustration portfolio with the hopes of getting jobs with a similar mood and subject matter. I honestly felt that it was a long shot, so you can imagine my excitement when I got the call to paint a dying, human-like tree (riddled with holes caused by bark beetle infestation) for an article about the effects of climate change on our forests. It was a dream gig and an absolute joy to work on. A big thanks to Art Director Bob Delboy at UUWorld Magazine for the amazing assignment. Here’s to believing that your personal viewpoint can find a home in the mainstream.

Here’s something I did for a competition. The challenge was to create a character that fit into Studio Ghibli’s universe. I didn’t want to do characters that were obviously from a movie they’d already made, so instead I made characters from an imaginary movie.
Basically; two poor siblings (to the right) are on a long journey. Somewhere along the way they’ve met a brave knight who joins them.
In this scene they’ve come across the a wizard. Obviously he’s the best wizard ever because he has all the scrolls and books and cats and hats and wands and staffs possible. He can’t really move around much though…

Testing ways of working with three colors or less when printing on the Riso. What might look good, what wouldn’t etc.
I’ve been doing so much work with a lot of detailed linework recently, and so I’m also testing if I might skip lines completely.
Raymond Lemstra, bringing back some sense of wonder.

A common concept found in Hamlet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Macbeth is the idea of illusion vs reality. Shakespeare blurs the line between the natural and super natural worlds making the reader question what is actually true. This poster series utilizes multiple layers of warped typography to convey this idea.
