Illustration

Deliverables:

My illustration journey began with Visual Art in the studios of U.C. Berkeley in 2009 and more recently evolved into the digital realm. Drawing has always helped me to process emotions and translate the hard moments of life into something more beautiful. Below are personal works from the past and present.
