Some Place Far From Here Front and Back Cover

Illustration has always been my way for of finding relief from the expectations of growing up and being an adult. It helped me to escape to imaginary universes and nurture the inner child that was dying inside as I pursued a career outside of art. I relied on making art as a way keep myself motivated as I fumbled with my career choices. 

Some Place Far From Here is a collection of the different worlds, feelings, and lessons that came from deciding to give 100% in facing my fears and owning my artist identity.

In creating this artbook, I hope to share my experiences and motivate other aspiring artists to follow their hearts.
