My bread baking bone breaking badass for Jenn Woodall’s FIGHT! zine!
Because nothing beats some hot ‘n crusty bread.

I made the gif just for kicks, but it’s wonky in places because it took waaaay longer than I planned for and I had to stop! Overall though, this has been probably one of the funnest pieces for me to draw. Definitely influenced by my everlasting love of Kiki’s Delivery Service & not-so-secret desire to live in a bakery. I wanna do more food-themed fighters!

Prints available from my Inprnt store.

    2 different illustrations from different times, both for Education Week! With thanks to my art director Vanessa Solis.
    Although they’re in different styles, with both of these I tried to be a little looser with my marks—I give into perfectionistic tendencies way too often, it’s time to dial it back a bit. (or at least try)

    Seniors & ‘The Internet of Everything’, for a special edition supplement for WIRED readers. With thanks to my art director, Ryan Vulk.

    My illustration accompanied info about advances in connectivity and technology that could benefit seniors—one of which may be cool helpful robots! As you can see, some bits and pieces got changed from the original sketch, and I also had the sudden realization that a table with ONE chair is infinitely sadder than a table with TWO chairs.

    When it came time to figure out the final, I had no clue how the lighting would actually work. I searched the internet without success until I realized that my stupid hands could actually make a rough lighting model—way more efficient! My final isn’t 100% accurate, but the general idea is there.

    For the Boston Globe’s Sunday Arts section, May 18th. The general theme was “Summer & Arts”, and right now I can’t think of anything more summery than a chill roof party. (please invite me to your roof parties)

    I just sent one sketch for this, because I was really excited to do this particular idea, and my longtime art director Ryan Huddle is awesome and puts a lot of trust in me. Which, I think, leads to many of the illustrations I like the most, because I’m free to work in my own way and want to fulfill that trust with a really nice piece.

    As a note—this piece was colored almost entirely with a combination of a gradient map and adjustment layers on top of a grayscale image. I started off with a grayscale sketch, and added a gradient map sandwiched between a few adjustment layers (curves, selective color, and color balance). For me, working on my tone/contrast first and then color 2nd is almost always the key to good color.

    Print available from my Inprnt store.

    CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE

    For Mental Floss. Man, I loved those books growing up. Besides the scary-adventure variety, there was also a nature photo series of CYOA books that I paged through obsessively at the library—like “Could You Be a Frog?” where you had to make life and death decisions like “There’s some geese over there: hide in the grass, or hop towards the river?”
    Needless to say I was psyched to illustrate this.

    Thanks to my AD Joshua Moore!

    2 covers for Hot Key Books! Hot Key is a UK publisher that specializes in fiction for 9-19 year old readers (and uses a lot of illustrated covers to boot!) Fearsome Dreamer came out last year, and I recently finished up the cover for its sequel, The Illusionists, this year, both written by Laure Eve. Both take place in a dystopian future with a distinctive mix of technology, magic, reality/dreams, (and romance!) centered around the heroine, Rue.

    Hot Key had a pretty defined idea of what they wanted for each cover—Rue in the center standing wrapped in a future flag in the ruins of a stone square, and Rue facing forward, pushing open heavy doors with “Life” glitching out behind her. I was happy to oblige, and really like the mint & pink color combo we decided on!
    It’s been a lot of fun to work on, with many thanks due to my dynamic duo of art directors, Jan Bielecki & Jet Purdie!

  • Anonymous said: hello friend, in reference to your comment on the vagina-boat: please do not equate vaginas with women! if it is by women and for women it should be for the women who don't have vaginas as well!

    Absolutely! My apologies to anyone offended—it was a flippant comment on my part that I didn’t analyze at the time, though I definitely did not intend it as a barrier or attack against anyone. Lumberjanes, and the cover I drew for it, is for everyone, period.
