I DRAW STUFF
I draw what I see. I start in Adobe Draw on my iPad to get the shapes and values of each portrait, and then I move the file to Adobe Illustrator on my Macbook Pro to draw the colors and gradients. These aren't photos! I use no filters, no live-tracing or live-painting. They're all just marks on a surface. It's a lot like painting in acrylics, but I have the luxury of hitting "undo."
I'm a Boston-based illustrator, writer, and educator, and I'm open for commercial inquiries and commission work. Drop me a line via email or any of my social media links to the left if you'd like to hire me to draw you a thing.
