These scenes are from a children's book that I illustrated. There is a made up character of an unknown species left in a perfect garden. He wanders to the forest to discover a portal warping its surroundings. The inside is a window into deep space. Looking back one more time, he steps inside. He follows a rainbow road throughout space, seeing stunning views and meeting other strange creatures. This children's book is mainly just supposed to have silly, likeable characters and invoke an interest in space.

The night was dark and stormy. Everything was soaked with water. The woods cannot even protect much of anything inside. A little puppy sits in the shed that is slightly intact in the forest. Sleeping, while awaiting the end of the storm.
This piece was fun to make. The china marker added this faded, gothic tone to the piece which added to the dark nature. This material made it even better for the chiaroscuro element in the piece. I liked learning about chiaroscuro method from our lectures that mentioned the method and different artists. An artist named Caravaggio inspired me within this method. I never used chiaroscuro with this material before so it was a different route for me but I think it came out well.
