Sheridan Illustration

My name is Elyse Martin and I'm a vibrant and loud Illustrator.

I enjoy Narrative / Character Illustration, Motion Animation and am striving to be a future blackwork Tattoo Artist.

I was born and raised in a small town in Northern Ontario, Canada. I left in order to pursue illustration, and never looked back.

A simple way to describe my style is "Cornea Corruption" or "Acid Trip Creature Feature". With wild colours from all over the spectrum, slimy, sweaty and the overall kind of freaky way that I draw, my art is still very much adaptable to any project!
