“That Wondrous Little Stranger” digital illustration , various sizes

 

Within the meads of my mind, there are people. It is beyond my mask of flesh that one would find Vincent Van Gogh, Sylvia Plath, Matthew Arnold, Robyn Davidson, Percy Shelley and Walt Whitman, who is yawping. These people have taught me that you don’t have to be a paragon to truly live, and that it doesn’t take an idiot to be stupid.

“Christ with the Littles” digital illustration, various sizes

 

It’s the works done in their life that have whispered to me, as if from the dust, “Carpe Diem!” And so, drawing always has been a part of my life; it has been my way of answering my friends’ whispers.

Thus far, I’ve learned that the compulsory measures to astronaut custodial comfort in my life are found through art, especially in creating it.

“Always the Road” digital illustration, various sizes

 

Through digital illustration, I strive to guide others to hope, crossing my fingers that whoever looks upon my work will hear that same pricking whispering of “Carpe Diem.”

“Inner Muliebric Blue Whales” digital illustration, various sizes

 

Beyond my own life’s mileage of drawing, I attended two semesters at Southern Virginia University, studying within their Art and Design Program. There was a lot of mirth found in that miserable condensed mileage, and such mirth nipped my measly meandering, artistically speaking, and deepened dreams of becoming an artist.

“Words and Sparrows” digital illustration, various sizes

 

The style I’ve incrementally fallen into stems from a season of my life when a greedy grief’s growth garnished my every waking minute.

“Ancestral Aid” digital illustration, various sizes

 

A sort of collage-like journaling helped me gain a grip on such grief. It gainfully allowed the season to do as it meant to do all along—reveal a new expansiveness within me.

“The Diverse Catch of the Gospel Net” digital drawing, various sizes

 

The collage-like journaling replicated the garnishing of that grief. Within my journal I embellished cursive thoughts with drawings.

“Swimming Upstream” digital illustration, various sizes

 

My style now does this in a similar way—I love to embellish poetic ideas and thoughts through delicate details that evoke motion and that ultimately echo the whisperings of my friends.
