1. Leo Chan & The Suited Racer

    07 Jan 2019
    After a long hiatus over the holidays I am rejuvenated and inspired to continue portrait painting. I’m starting a brief series based on menswear influencers. Fashion is the second big passion in my life (after art) so I love when the two intersect. I paired these two pieces together because…

  2. Chinatown in Montreal

    This fun, little speed painting was made after I got back from a trip to Montréal, Canada. I had only been there for a layover two years ago so I welcomed the chance to explore. Painting created using Procreate on iPad Pro.

  6. Frank E. Brady

    07 Oct 2018
    I have noticed a shift in my friend, Frank Brady. I have always known him to be focused, positive and extremely influential. As of late he has taken his public speaking, poetry and hustle to new heights. This man does not know what a glass ceiling is. It seemed like…

  7. Self Portrait

    28 Sep 2018
    The last realistic looking self portrait I created was last year in December. Creating illustrations of my self is rare especially in this style. The reason for that is it’s always a little eerie to see myself emerge from a digital canvas. I used a reference photo that a friend…
