"Soy la flor Encendida"

I created this illustration after a winter trip to the Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago, IL. All of the plants in the illustration can be found in the various rooms of the conservatory. After leaving, I wanted to capture the magical feeling of being in an oasis of green lushness in the middle of winter.

Miyazaki Studies

This illustration is a study of characters from Mononoke-Hime. This film has had a substantial impact on my art and design both stylistically and thematically. His films deal with environmental and social issues with hard-hitting while never losing the strength of the narrative or aesthetic quality.
