Thank you for visiting my page! Please sit back and enjoy a digital cup of tea |
I specialize in comic book art, illustration, concept development and world building in both digital and traditional. I have exhibited my art online for 15 years and am privileged to have met many creative people! Born in Jamaica W.I., I currently live in the U.S. where I work full time while working on personal art projects. My favorite character is Sonic the Hedgehog and my other influences are Zelda, Studio Ghibli, Disney, Final Fantasy, old 80s anime, real life, and other random influences.

Status: Commissions are currently closed.
1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
2. What does your username mean?
It's just a nickname a schoolmate called me in high school.
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Cautious, polite, neurotic.
4. Are you left or right handed?
Righty but it would be cool to be ambidextrous.
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
Fun and touching pieces like the one above; things that have a narrative in general since I am a more story-driven artist.
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
A more painterly form of digital art, otherwise, totally sculpture.
9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Art that represents things that I admire, like and care about. That would mean things from my favorite fandoms like Sonic (obviously), things having to do with truth, faith, life and things that bring hope.
11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
All of the above. But I'm kind of shy... I already know Michelay in RL though so that helps.
12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Michelay encouraged me to take my gift seriously and to have the faith to back it up. I wouldn't be where I am today if I didn't listen. Netraptor has been a long time inspiration because she believes in writing epics that prove you can make amazing works while coming from a Christ-centered perspective. She's also warned and spoke truth to me that has helped to protect me. Like Mish, NR can write AND draw and boy do I envy that! MaveT is also inspirational in how she is not afraid to tell the tough stories but also from faith. She faithfully plugs away at her comics and I always squee for the next page. NBVega is a brilliant writer who just gives me so much art fuel with his powerful and moving style and man I hope he gets to develop his drawing more. Glitcher, Tracy, Tigerfog, Axer, Darkspeeds... their art is just beautiful and technically inspired me over the years. They are a standard that I return to and learn from but I would say my TOP favourite artist is Patrick Spaziante, who did comic book covers for the Archie Sonic comic. Too bad he isn't a deviant!
13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
Photoshop CC, colour pencils, water colour, micron and felt tip pens.
14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
At my friend's house, at my house in the dead of night, and wherever other people are also being creative. One of my life goals is to have my own studio space so I can leave it as trashy as I want!
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
The precious conversations and feedback I get on DA... Also having the chance to encourage others and share that Someone up above loves them with an everlasting love. That their gifts are important and special and worth sharpening and cultivating.
