New beginnings!

Update your bookmarks!
I started a tumblr page a while ago.

Over the past few years, I got the opportunity to work on many different projects that allowed me to hone my skills in various ways. The range I showed in my portfolio grew larger, but in the process, I felt like I lost sight of what my personal style was. As an artist, I need to get back to doing what I like the most and create new pieces to reflect that.

This is the opportunity for me to redefine my style, and start with a clean slate!
Hope you'll like it!

I am extremely lucky to work with legendary Disney animator Andreas Deja on his short film "Mushka". I cannot wait to share what I've been doing on it... But for now, you'll have to do with this update on his blog!

Baby Love

I've been longing to make some mean pieces for the blog, so here's one.
I was definitely inspired by Ronald Searle for the characters... Hope you'll find it funny!

The secret ball

Aug 29, 2011


I just got back from an AMAZING trip to Italy... I was inspired to create a new piece based on my own reference pictures. I started with the idea of wildly exaggerating proportions of the Venetian architecture...

... then I looked for moods and different times of the day...

... then I did a quick tonal study to make sure the layout and the lighting worked together, and I started painting from there.
