This is a book cover redesign I created for my Illustration Styles and Concepts Class. I chose to design a cover for the dark thriller "The Stepford Wives" by Ira Levin. I painted the figure and dropped in a vintage decorative wallpaper in the background as an homage to Coles Phillips.

This piece is a recreation of the "Gone With The Wind" poster for a factoid assignment. The factoid I chose to illustrate was that Clark Gables breath was so bad that vivian leigh would come close to fainting during their kissing scenes. Scarlett is offering Rhett a breath mint in their embrace. The medium is acrylic on cold press illustration board.
Two pieces I created to explore some themes Lady Gaga expressed through her work. Substance abuse, addiction, objectification of women, I wanted to show that all these things are seen through her. This is why I left parts of my illustration exposed. These pieces are mixed media with hand drawn illustrations.

This illustration was created for my Illustration Styles and Concepts class. The assignment was to create an illustration that shows two people interacting in some form of conversation. I chose to do a beautiful young couple caught in the moment of "popping the question". This painting is an homage to the sweet, simple and quirky style of Mr. Norman Rockwell. The medium is acrylic on illustration board.
This is a painting I did for my entrepreneurial illustration class. We had to create a piece that resonated with who we were, I decided to paint Veronica Lake. I feel that she embodies classic Hollywood glamour and I wanted to illustrate her in a classic film noir style.
