This project was done for a debut album cover titled â€œOrder and Progressâ€? for local musicians. The client allowed creative freedom while balancing great feedback and hands on approach. The end product was a new experimentation in my style.
Order and Progress - Digital Painting
This project was a commissioned abstract artwork used for the EP of a band. The band had requested my style from a series of colored pencil drawings of mine. The project was a great way for me to express my artistic side freely.

This was a project done for a local metal band, Seas of Wake, to highlight a new album and band member showcase. The project was a newer obstacle to tackle by using more live photos but ultimately matched the theme and style of the metal band.

This series of projects were a great new way to display the versatility and style of The Great Divide Campgroundâ€™s own mascot Wilson as well as my ability to adapt a character to fit different types of marketing. It culminated in an animated holiday video incorporating the management team as elves to be shared with all the Great Divide campers.

“The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.”
“Normality is a paved road: It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it.”
-Vincent van Gogh
