I have made many changes this year- one very noticeable difference is my surroundings. In early 2018, I stepped foot in Australia for the first time and now it will be my new home. Growing up in the Mojave desert was a big difference from the cool fresh air in Denver. I enjoyed the Rockies but now I'm enjoying playing the ocean waves. I had sketched out some very simple illustrations when inspiration hit me at a party. A friend had some clean line tattoos and I thought I could draw those and have them be special to me and my life. It stayed with me and I knew I wanted to take it farther. I created this piece in Illustrator and Photoshop and I'm probably not done with the concept. Stay updated for more.
Here are a few sketches I tried while playing with the concept of my different landscapes I have lived in.
