First of all, special thanks to my friend Alec Johnson for building this new site! I’ve got some really exciting projects ahead and I’m thrilled to have a fresh, new design to showcase them. Which leads me to the really big news: I’m going to be an author. For the first time, I will be illustrating a book that I have also written, and it will be released in December. I really cannot wait! I will keep this site up to date with all the developments.

To inaugurate the new coreyegbert.com, here is my latest personal piece, Refuge. It is part of a series of fantastical architecture pieces (you can see more on my Instagram). This was inspired by a sailing trip I took across the Long Island Sound ten years ago. I remember seeing a strange building in the distance perched on a rock in the water. I was curious about who may live or work inside it. I am intrigued by the mystery of buildings I will never explore. I leave it to you to imagine who lives here.
