Luke and Yoda test painting or It Surrounds Us by KatieRosePreston
Luke and Yoda test painting or It Surrounds Us
That's what the force looks like people, sparkly glowy stuff. None of the characters are original concepts and do not belong to me or are to be used for any commercial or third party use. This was quick wip for practice and fun.

Another piece that I did for the "cities" project at school. My grandma said that on Sunday afternoons all the old ladies would hike into the hills with their groceries and all throughout the woods there were signs that warned against feeding the trolls.

My grandma used to visit her friend in Bergen every year when she was younger. She always talked about how lovely the fishing docks were and how the locals had a strong belief in the existence of trolls.

Read from left to right. This was an experiment I did at school to make a comic with no frames but just one sequential image.

I would like to insert something dreamy and thought provoking here but really I'm not like that. When I make art I'm all about fun even on deadlines because if you don't completely love what you do, chances are you shouldn't be doing it. Animals are my thing and whales and dolphins I keep close to my spirit. That is because I dream of one day joining a beluga whale jazz band where I can dress in a scuba suit and do the Charleston underneath an iceberg with them.

I'm in school now so I play around with a lot of mediums but my favorite is liquid acrylic. I'm aiming to become a children's book illustrator so that I can at least write a book about a wild beluga band though for now, I'm writing one about the Loch Ness Monster because there are no good books about Nessie and there should be. Well, I'd say that's enough don't you think?
