The Mountain Man

Short, in-class assignment, we had to do an illustration for a short story called "The Mountain Man" (I don't remember the author... oops.)

John Dies at the End

Most of you have probably never heard of John Dies at the End by David Wong, so I'm here to tell you that is is a GREAT BOOK and if you like demons, gore, swearing, and general hilarity you should check it out.
Now that that's out of the way, here is a cover I designed for it as a final for our class with #1 Cool Dude Sam Bosma! Also a few spot illustrations for select chapters.


Project for one of my classes last year, I re-imagined Dora the Explorer as a young adult fantasy/adventure series. It was really fun to research the show and try to figure out how to make it translate in a darker tone (pretty difficult in some ways!) A really enjoyable project overall, I'd love to try doing something similar with other kids shows.

 BONUS: some initial rough sketches!
