My illustration work is mostly comprised of fantasy themes with people, children, animals, and fantastical creatures. The medium I mostly use now is cut chipboard layered to form my images. You can see this by looking at my portfolios Peter and the Wolf and Sample Illustrations. Before glueing any of the layers together I would paint on top with acrylics and sometimes glue paper to give a sharper look to some areas. At the end I would go back and add detail where needed such as eyes or lines to define the mouth or hands.
A lot of my work itself is inspired by what I see around me, books, and other artists, contemporary and past. Some of my favorite contemporary artists are Patrick Arrasmith, Brom, Drew Struzan, Cathie Bleck, and Eiko Ojala. Some art books I look at are Spectrum: Contemporary Fantasy Art and Blue Canvas.
