Soopa Doopa Totem

This piece is one component of a larger, more complex image, extracted out to showcase it on its own. This will also be included as part of a series of ‘portraits’ I’m working on. The meaning of this particular illustration is loosely based on a trip I took to Viet Nam.

My day job is art director, and whenever possible I try to include my illustration into my advertising work.

Plus I do commission illustrations. But often I feel compelled to spend time illustrating out of the sheer need to simply just make art, uninhibited and unadulterated by the powers of client and commerce demands.
