Riak Interactive Map Mockup

Been working on my Riak map, using it to create a mockup map interface, as if you were looking at it in-game.

Gawd I love maps. <3



Pulse Character and Gun Concepts

I created this character last week purely as a guilty pleasure – I just wanted to draw something fun without worrying about originality or her place in a universe. I ended up having a ton of fun with it, so don’t be surprised if a whole new project springs up around her. ;) I have a male counterpart for her planned next. (Look ma, I designed a gun!)

(PS: If you are some sort of social media savvy person who dwells in Tumblr land, you can find me there now too! Even though I don’t really know what I’m doing I think I can probably eventually figure it out.)

Or follow me on Facebook. :D

Tide Clothing and Textile Concepts

Since armageddon-levels of smoke are preventing me from leaving the house on this lovely August afternoon, I got a lot of work done instead! Here’s a couple concept pages focusing on the clothing, textiles, and general aesthetics of The Tide – a name I use to generally refer to a region of Riak.

I knew I was going to need a bunch of different patterns for these guys, so I created some of my own. Looking forward to exploring that more. :)


Summer Catchup

Oh, hey. I haven’t posted since May?
I guess… summer happened?

For my own purposes, I spent an inordinate amount of time tonight compiling ALL of my Riak work (well, all of it that’s currently on my computer). Thought it would be interesting to share. I think having it all in once place where I can quickly glance at it will help me keep all of my thoughts together, and help me see what I need to work on…. like more environment stuff. >.>


Tigers and Birds and Mountains

Nope, not gonna say it.

Been sketchin eh. A couple studies from the past week.
If you’d rather have your art-spiration on the daily (well, you know) instead of in a big compilation post (plus more process and stuff that never quite makes it here), feel free to like my art page on Facebook. :)




Bubble Forest

Pulled this one back out and finished it up. Probably one of my recent favourites.

If seeing this makes you go something like “oh my gawd, I totally want this on my wall/phone case/couch pillows/a tote bag/etc.,” then scoot your buttĀ on over to my Redbubble account and check it out!

Tiny Rainbows

This piece was initially inspired by the song “Tiny Rainbows” by Nana Grizol, one of my favourite bands. I really enjoyed painting this one. I feel a little lighter, lately. Bit by bit. I feel more relaxed in my work, and more me. Nothing but blue skies ahead…

“Our lives blended better than our bodies ever could
In the days when we were made out of flesh or wood
Yeah we weren’t the same color though we knew that we could be
We were ourselves but blended at the edges like it should be..”


Also, another Facebook fan portrait that I did a little bit ago.
