  1. First finished piece for my senior thesis! The main part of this project consists of 9 full page illustrations of folktales from around the world.

    This particular illustration is for an Irish folktale, The Fisherman and the Gruagach of Tricks. In this tale, a father wishing his son to become more learned allows a gruagach to take him away. As a result, an INSANE adventure unfolds  involving shapeshifting, horse races, bribery, eels, and a princess (of course).

    This image depicts a trial in which the father must pick his son from a group of 12 pigeons, can you guess which one it is? ;)
