Behind the scenes of animation

Here is a little sneak peak at a project that I’m currently working on. Using traditional hand-drawn animation technique, each frame is painted with black ink. It’s a fight scene from The Grandmaster, the “love match” between Yip Man and Gong Er when they get to know each other through the poetic language of their bodies - one of my favorite scenes. 

Aloha Oaxaca Logo

Logo design for Aloha Oaxaca, LA based project of musicians Aaron Thomas Robinson and Brittany Graeff. The pair are on a rad mission of teaching ukulele workshops to kids in Oaxaca, Mexico and subsequently donating the instruments to schools.

The hand-drawn logo features a blue agave, also known as tequila agave that is native to Mexico, with ukulele in the middle. The design was extended to include “Proyecto Aloha” and “Aloha Project” for international use. Also including some process work, sketches and logo options to show the preliminary stages of design smile emoticon. I’m thinking the logo has a tattoo potential…hmm.

World Wildlife Fund : Ganges River Dolphin

A watercolor and pencil illustration for WWF India, depicting the endangered Gangetic Dolphin.

In celebration of National Dolphin Day, World Wildlife Fund is joining forces with joining with the Uttar Pradesh Forest Department, other NGOs and local citizens to conduct a census on the species so that’s hyper cool!

The Ganges River Dolphin is called the tiger of the Ganges because of its importance to the health of the river.

Style Me Pretty

Excited to get the stationery I designed featured on Style Me Pretty! The calligraphy was painted with watercolors and flowers drawn with colored pencils. The wedding stationery was created for a 1920’s inspired editorial that I got to collaborate on with fellow Slovak creatives & photographers Peter & Veronika

Sun gold

I loved playing around with gold textures in this new illustration of a howling husky, made for a CD sleeve of a friend. I mixed gauche, ink, watercolors and pencil illustration, superimposed and edited in Photoshop (of course).
