I'm extremely relieved to finally get into a professional artist's reference book for the first time. I have long fantasized about getting my fantasy art in Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastical Arts.

All of the judges are incredible artists, but the fact that Boris Vallejo (a real fantasy art legend) deems my monster worthy is a true honor.

Here is Maman Malek with her finishing layer of oil. I rarely work with oil paint, but will spill the linseed upon request. All together this is a drawing with white chalk and charcoal covered with a thin layer of Winsor & Newton I bought back when I was a freshman. I like portraits, please contact me if you would like to have This kind of painting with Your loved one.

Here is my most recent tattoo design. This design incorporates Gemini symbols, the tree of life, Celtic patterns and much more. If you've ever imagined the ultimate tat, but can't seem to find the right images to take to the parlor just email me at or and I'll work it up for a reasonable price.

This is the Demon Imwijina, a fantastical character of my personal invention. It is also the Demoneclefe, and Emaen. I am building a story and a world for this character, but the process is slow and at times still. I sent some of these images to the Spectrum fantastical art competition and I believe they were uninterested. I hoped some publicity would catalyze her realization. But this project will progress since she is relatively indestructable, both in imagination and reality. This character is meant to be a tiny juggernaut, a lil jugg. Bottom line, if I were paid to make art completely of my own invention, I'd know exactly what to make.

This is a tree I drew in Charles Village. It took me 4 sittings. I'm trying to create a personal library of trees to use in a very elaborate painting I've been planning out for about a year. Who knows when it will happen. Drawing this was very enjoyable.
