Wow I have just this week and Uni is over! Well until I start my Summer class BUT i get to go to Oregon to study wild lizards so that's going to be awesome!Ingolf the lizard emoticon I've been so busy with school and it's not quite over yet which is why I haven't posted any art in a few weeks. I likely won't really post much until September actually.  I know I want to but I just wont have the time. I'll be in the desert for four weeks chasing lizards! Then this next school year in my LAST! I'm graduating in Spring 2018 which is scary and awesome and what do I do omygoodness. I'll figure it out.

What inspires me?
Inspiration can be found anywhere. Music is a powerful tool for opening up the mind. I close my eyes, listen, let the music guide my thoughts. Sometimes I visualize characters singing the songs, dancing, or acting out the actions of a song. Biology, anthropology, sociology are all sciences that provide an endless supply of inspirational ideas and concepts to incorporate into art.

Who would I consider my influences?
I admire many Japanese artists such as Hayao Miyazaki who founded Studio Ghibli, and Tatsuyuki Tanaka who worked on "Akira". I also love creature designers such as Allison Theus and Terryl Whitlatch who designed many great beasts for Star Wars.

Do you characterize your work in a specific style?
For a long time I worried that I would never be able to find a style I liked enough to stick with, but defining one's art style is much more organic than that. Trying out different techniques, mediums, and interpretations of a subject is a great way to find out what you like and don't like. Defining my own individual art style has been a long process and there is no doubt that it will continue to change as I improve.

What I try to emphasize in my work are sharp contrasts in color and light, expressive faces and subtle textures, and dynamic perspective
