Illustration

This is a collection of illustration based graphics created for various projects and ideas lots of them just coming from my free time. A lot of my personal time is spent trying to push my abilities to convey a feeling or tell a story through illustration. I think that the ability to draw as a designer is a major advantage and this has sparked my interest into furthering what that means. I like to think of it as designing with a pencil. I love to look at images with humanistic qualities to them, and thus in tern I love to make them. I think it is an overlooked trait and ability to truly nail home a point or a story. A huge part of what I do with my work is marry the concepts of illustrative qualities to graphic design systems. From brand systems, to Logo marks, to editorial design. Illustrative qualities are a great way of drawing
peoples attention.
