I’m excited to be a part of Illozine #16. The theme is LOUD! and it is quite an explosive collection. Illozine is an illustrated quarterly zine which features a bevy of creative talent. Take a look here.
Even though the illustration is printed in black and white, I thought I’d share my color version as well. This illustration will be the guinea pig for my first risograph print. Stay tuned!…
I recently completed this holiday portrait commission for a couple of friends of mine (they are human). This project was a fun challenge in capturing their likenesses (in animal form) and a great excuse to play off of the classic American Gothic painting.
I was recently interviewed by the lovely ladies at Muse’s Milk about working as an illustrator. Check it out here!
I had the great opportunity to illustrate the 2015 Best of MN cover for the Star Tribune. You can’t beat summer in Minnesota, it’s a beautiful and euphoric time of the year. If only it could last a little longer…
New Illustration – The Hunters and the Hunted. I would tread lightly in these woods… Thanks to the Serial Podcast, I was able to sit down and knock this one out fairly quickly.
I reverted back to an old familiar technique here, using graphite on rag paper with digital color. Unintentionally, the color palette is hauntingly similar to the spooky “What Was I Scared of” Dr. Suess book! I think that one left a lasting impression on me as a kid. Nightmares of floating pants… (see below).
Happy New Year! It’s the year for fully embracing social media, I can feel it. I’m kicking off the new year by posting an illustration which was included in the Minneapolis College of Art and Design Faculty Biennial show this past fall. The theme was the Wondrous, the Monstrous, and the Human. I was happy to be a part of this impressive and diverse show. For more information regarding the exhibition, you can read about it here.
May 2015 be sweet as honey!
Don’t mind the pun, I couldn’t help myself. This piece was spawned from a tiny thumbnail I drew while waiting in the doctor’s office. I find I do my best work when I’m quarantined.
I wanted to play around with dimension, pattern/texture swatches, and mixed media. It will fit nicely within the larger collection of tiny islands I’m currently working on. More of that to come…
