Why did you pick this picture?
I believe this illustrations show where I currently with my illustration work. While it shows how much I love to add a sense of narrative to my work, as well as hearing what the viewers interpretation of my work is.
Where did the idea come from?
This was an idea that was circling around in my head a few months before I actually began sketching it out. I just loved the symmetrical design of the illustrations on playing cards, and I began Making up stories in my head of all these different characters. This is actually the first in a series where I plan to illustrate the rest.
What does this art mean to you?
To me it means two forces colliding, always trying to rule over one another. With neither of them giving up.
What can you tell us about yourself?
I am a 23 year old freelance illustrator. I have spent my life surrounded by art, and love all forms of story telling. From movies, books, music to video games. This is where my passion for story telling comes from.
What more can you tell us about your art?
Each piece of personal art I create, is where I am currently at in my life – on all levels. I try to represent this in my artwork when I can.
