Hi! My name is JB and I am an illustrator and concept artist based in Guelph. I want to create paintings that evoke emotion through the use of colour and light. I am inspired by a lot of movies and video games and hope to make content that inspires others as a lot of amazing artists have inspired me. When I’m not drawing, you can find me nerding about shows, doing ungodly amounts of karaoke, or learning a new dance.
Featherfell is a dark fantasy game concept about a group of wingless birds who were corrupted by prophecy in a quest to obtain the eyes of God to gain its power. But in the God’s last moments, it cursed the land by devouring the sun and becoming a never-ending eclipse that melts the wings of all who wish to fly. The main character Icarus, whose freedom was taken away from her, dedicates her life to blinding the sun and its remaining eyes.

Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark
As the title says, this project is a personal challenge for myself to illustrate found-footage horror imagery in hopes to overcome my extreme fear of the dark and all things supernatural.
