High school chemistry class used to be confusing at best. Then I imagined what the elements would be like as characters. Suddenly everything became a lot more interesting...

An artist from birth, I was the kid who drew in a class all the time. This phase perpetuated well into art school - where it was actually OK to draw in class! As senior year approached, they encouraged us to come up with an idea for our thesis that combined everything we'd learned at school and gave insight as to who we were and what inspired us. Drawn in pencil and colored in Photoshop, I took my first love - characters - and combined it with a strong idea to create these 112 illustrations.

These days, I'm concepting an entire world in which these Elements live, and a story to go with that world. I'm also selling flashcards on my Etsy shop to help kids around the world learn about the elements.

I like these helpful hints, facts and illustrations its not a means to educate someone on the periodic table but it is nice to have a picture in mind while learning.

Is this meaning to look like water? I think the plasma of a star would have been a good representation, hydrogen is the principal fuel.

Argon gas is actually more dense than air, so it sinks when released. Cool picture though!
