STAN THE MAN - Digital Painting
TYPOGRAPHY POSTER - Ballot or the Bullet
The concept was to represent both the words BULLET and
BALLOT in the same plane. Since the words are so similar in
structure and size, it became apparent to transpose one over
the other. Opaque typography was utilized rather than employ
the conventional multiply effect to represent both the words.
“ It’ll be the ballot or it’ll be the bullet.
It’ll be liberty or it’ll be death.
And if you’re not ready to pay that
price don’t use the word freedom in
your vocabulary. ”
DIGITAL ILLUSTRATION - Children’s Mental Health Awareness Poster
Concept - A young girl (wrapped in a straight jacket) innocently looks out to a butterfly symbolizing freedom and hope. The straight jacket is a powerful symbol of mental illness (of being “crazy”), which gets enhanced when a child is placed in it. The illustration also serves as a metaphor of a cocoon; similar to the situation faced by many children with mental illness.

PORTRAIT (oil painting)
I call this one- “What just happened?”
This is the second illustration in the emotional portrait series.
I wanted to go for a fear/dread/somber expression.
We had to create two illustrations of the same subject, but with completely different moods/emotions. This is the first illustration in the series.
