Practice, Reflection, Analysis

My name is Declan Luke and I'm a concept designer and illustrator. Currently, I am studying a Bachelor of Design (Illustration and Animation) at the University of South Australia. Outside of art, you'll find me playing basketball, re-watching the 2006 Pixar film Ratatouille, roaming open world video games, and eating the best food ever created: apple crumble.

I have an obsession with maximising the efficiency of my design process and finding a balance between speed and quality. My focus day to day has been developing a streamlined practice method which builds self-discipline and helps handle challenges, tough workloads and consistency.

My focus is on complete transparency and open-mindedness with all feedback, critiques and suggestions; as most of my best ideas come from outside input. I'm in love with creating believable worlds and characters with flair and personality. My current goal is to bring emotion and life to my images through a sequence of lightly animated 2.5D illustrations.
