I saw a lot of Magpies when I went to London, we don’t really have them in BC so it was really cool. The only other time I’d seen a Magpie was online when I was doing a report on crows. Since magpies are part of the corvid family, somehow the white makes them look so much more majestic.
Magpie is Digitally painted and printed on 11 x 17, 100lb card stock
I’ve always loved artwork. Spending long hours on the internet just admiring other people’s art. And my margins in class would always be full of doodles.
I got heavily into Japanese animation. It was then I determined that the end all be all of artwork was to draw for a comic.
I wrote and illustrated my own webcomic for two years after high school. Around the end of the comic I had started getting really into the gaming scene, Magic: the Gathering, in particular. The artwork was very enchanting and breathtaking.
Eventually, I shifted my goals from “comic artist” to “card artist”. Then began a number of projects related to card game illustration. Also, I shifted to a more realistic style.
