Latest Illustrations: September 2016

It’s been a busy year! As the fall season begins I thought I would post some of my latest illustrations. I’ve gotten behind — don’t we all wish we had more time? But I’ve finally jumped back in! Hoping to continue working on this series and finish the year strong. Most of the newest additions focus on 3D renderings using Octane Render (which I absolutely LOVE).
