This Asian Dragon is available as an ART PRINT HERE and was created for the non-profit organization, Dragon School 99, promoting artistic, community and cultural empowerment through street art, based in Oakland, CA. I’m very excited to be a part of their ventures 🙂
This was a fun project, where it presented a couple of challenges–one of which was to make the dragon less sinister and more approachable, but still tough. The eyes are the most expressive portion on the face, so I created different variations, and went with Version #5. In a few months, this design will morph slightly and slither its way onto a shirt; I’ll write a secondary post with the update, but in the meantime, hope you have a splendid Lunar New Year!
“Skeleton Bird Lovers” is a pen and graphite illustration with digital coloring, inspired by taxidermy curiosities and the upcoming Valentines Day holiday. This is available as an ART PRINT and PINS via my Etsy shop 🙂
Ouroboros Infinity Snake Art Design is a dark surrealist rendition of the classic mythological symbol, where life arises out of death. My version lies somewhere between the juxtaposed worlds of destruction (bones) and creation (flowers). The piece was created with pen and ink, graphite and a touch of digital coloring.
Wishing you a very happy 2018!!! With the zodiac year of the dog, I explored a ghost wolf concept with a magical crescent moon.

This Wolf illustration is inspired by the magick and folklore of Wiccans and Native Americans, where wolves represent strength and courage. I went back to basics with this almost-monotone illustration, but included highlight colors for the eyes (silver blue for the “spirit wolf”) and the crescent moon. I also incorporated my detailed patterning in the background, inspired by the intricate designs of old Chinese paper-cutting creations and zentangle images.
