Joseph Nguyen
60 Magellan Dr. Toronto, Ontario M3L 1T6


Hello! My name is Joseph Nguyen also known as BlackEyedDove, I work in Toronto, Ontario. I attended Seneca College for Independent Illustration to hone my skills as an artist and to gain business experience. I’m an artist interested in story boarding, concept art, character design and spot illustration. My style is very structured, colourful and very fantasy like. My medium range is acrylics, watercolour, ink, and any adobe  programs such as illustrator and Photoshop.

Lets get in touch!
