About me
Hi there! I am a 21-Year-old aspiring illustrator from Leeds, West Yorkshire. I specialize in character design fantasy art and comic art. My latest project was creating my own fantasy comic: "New Gods". Where I was able to bring to life my own original characters in my own comic. The comic tells the tale of Freya, a knight, who finds herself in trouble with an unearthly power. I find myself to have a serious passion for character design and comics, I find it fun and exciting to create something from a concept or an idea and transform it into something tangible. I'm not also afraid to dabble in Horror and other genres such as Sci-Fi, myself being inspired by them greatly in my everyday creative life as well as combining elements from these genres in my own practice.
