Animal Self-Portrait

An assignment to create a melding of my own physical and emotional characteristics with an animal that exhibits similar qualities, with the solemnity of the barn owl highlighting my own reserved nature. The illustration was created from a template of multiple composite images of myself and pictures of barn owls in order to get the textures, colors and details right.

The Doctor is...

An assignment that called for an iconic character to be portrayed as a pin-up girl led to this reimagining of Lucy from Peanuts, adding a fair dose of humorous innuendo through the use of her iconic psychiatric role.

Drawing from the evocative-yet-sketchy storyboard style of Pixar, which they use to quickly convey action, tone and emotion, I put their technique to use in this trio of images, which illustrate the life of a shy creature from the stars that curiously observes our world from atop a streetlight overlooking a public park.

Created an updated version of my family's coat of arms as a gift, using the traditional design and motto as a framework. Applied to a decorative foil background and framed.

Detail view. Each of the symbols refers back to traditional English heraldry iconography and have been linked with the Tillman coat of arms for centuries.
