I created this little girl for a character design assignment to embody a type of food in a character/outfit. I chose a dish close to my midwestern heart – Ambrosia Salad! Inked with a brush and colored digitally.

This piece was created as an installation for the Admiral Dot Miniature Gallery (The Smallest Gallery in the West!) located within the Compound Gallery and Studios in Oakland, CA. The entire gallery is a 6″ cube and I created an illustrated diorama that filled the entire space. The gallery is viewable only through a small peep-hole in the wall and I wanted to create the impression that viewers were peering into a typical nighttime scene in an alternate universe. The piece was on view from March 16th – April 28th of 2013.

Season Ticket Diaries is an ongoing journal comic chronicling my love of baseball. My friends and I are, for the first time ever, season ticket holders for the Oakland Athletics and I started this comic project to keep a record of the season. It’s also a chance to build up my storytelling chops and to practice traditional inking techniques. You can read all the entries so far on my blog.

An illustration created for Light Grey Art Lab’s Message in a Bottle exhibition in conjunction with their MAKE 2013 workshop. All the pieces in the show explore the themes of hidden pictures, encoded messages, and layers of meaning. This piece along with all the other pieces from the workshop spell out a secret message!
An illustrated paper toy created for Light Grey Art Lab’s Night of the Exquisite Corpse exhibition. Every artist invited to participate in the exhibition created a paper toy zombie based off of a common template. During the show’s opening, participants could switch body parts from all the assembled zombies to mix and match and create their own super zombie! My goal with Nico was to make sure that every body part was interesting and unique so that even if his parts were separated he’d still contribute to a compelling composition overall.
Cut&Fold Costumes are an ongoing series of paper craft masks that are easy to print out and assemble. I wanted to create accessible, stylish, and interesting masks while also exploring my ability to incorporate 3D forms into my illustration work. Masks can be downloaded on the Cut&Fold Costumes tumblr.
