Ferguson’s work is an expression of observations and visual memoirs from his life experience. The characters, architecture, and imagery used in his work are all conduits for telling stories and sharing ideas. Ferguson’s work is largely inspired by: ancient civilizations, baroque, gothic, and victorian era architectural movements, medieval, folk, and outsider art, ancient myths, fairy tales, and ideas of consciousness. His illustrative style and subjects form together in an effort to inspire introspection and employ aesthetic unity.

His work has been featured in VICE Media, Forbes Magazine, Hyperallergic, Hi Fructose, Juxtapoz, Create! Magazine, Tape OP, Time Out Chicago, and more.
