This piece was made as a way to highlight my Hispanic heritage and emulate scenes breaking open piñatas from my childhood. Won the December SCBWI Draw This! spot in the monthly online newsletter.
I created this image for a monthly contest set up by SVS Learn. The theme was Love and what better way to show your friendly love than to gift someone a delicious dessert. Seriously, I’d take a cupcake over a bouquet any day.
I was commissioned to create this book cover for a potential riddle book that is all about the bugs, birds, and beasts of Earth.
Dinos in the Rain
I wanted create a dinosaur print that was different from the usual situations that dinosaurs are drawn in, i.e. bones in the dirt, dinosaurs in the jungle, etc. I enjoyed working with a bright color palette and plan on making this into a print.
Tim Tam and the Pumpkin
A short narrative quickly describing the different stages of plant growth. Starring one of my original characters, Tim Tam the Gnome.
The Bug Keeper
First in a series of Gnome illustrations I created for the Kid Lit 28 Day challenge. The Bug Keeper tends to the sweet bugs of the Earth and even enjoys give one or two a cuddle every once in a while.
The Pie Maker
The second illustration I created for the Kid Lit 28 illustration challenge. The Pie keeper loves to cook in his kitchen, creating lovely gnome dishes that bring the local creatures around for a lovely afternoon snack.
Greta: Character Sheet
This a character design for Greta, the girl with very long hair. I worked on creating an emotion sheet for her, turning the head around to show how she’d look from multiple angles.
A concept cover image for a story about Greta, her hair, and their adventures.
Originally made for a monthly contest held by SVS Learn online, it has become the first piece in a series of three, showing “hidden” cryptids in fun situation. The piece received an honorable mention in the contest.
Happy Insect Pattern
I have a love for insects and wanted to create a pattern with them for a self made planner. Each insect has a different face hidden inside its markings, most of them happy. I plan on using this as a background for planner pages.
