  • For this class illustration project I chose mythological creatures. I tried to base all these projects on current trends seen in todays books, movies, and music. I wanted to go back to a classic recreation of these mythological beings. After researching these creatures you can see how they have evolved over time.

    All projects were hand drawn and with pencil and marker.
