Illustrations 

Here displayed are larger illustration projects that start as pen and pencil drawings which are then scanned and edited into photoshop to add color, depth and tone. They are huge projects that involve extensive research into the subject and in the design deep meaning + messages are visually displayed, telling stories whilst directing the viewers eyes around the page with careful and delicate visual illusions.

Dong Son Drum 

Inspired by the large, circular bronze drums of Northern Vietnam this is a modern take on the traditional drum patterns that depicted daily life.
