Lord and Lady of the Underworld- Half of a set of Demon Lord and Ladies done for an artbook by the Gorgonist. 
You can see my pieces in the centerfold on her etsy. This one is a Demon Lady. Buy the book to see the pair in all their horror and glory..
I redraw this concept every couple years so I can have a timeline in one image. The idea revolves around the cecropia caterpillar, and fairy friends. This time, the fairies are based on cecropia moths.

Detail work I did for a Planned Parenthood project.

Senior Thesis
Loss- Should I lose all I own, am I still entirely myself?
Memory- Can decay touch our most precious possessions? Or does our memory polish what we own?
Senior Thesis
Oil and Water
Senior Thesis- Part 2: Americans store things, promising themselves it will pay off in the future. Rarely do they see a return on their space investment. Hoarding is a magnified version of this phenomenon.
