A Life in Objects: PDF & Print Edition

As you may've noticed, I've spent the last three(ish) months working on The 100 Day Project, a creative game of sorts where participants try to create something every day for 100 days. I chose to illustrate meaningful objects from my life with little vignettes of text. The final collection, A Life in Objects, is now … Continue reading A Life in Objects: PDF & Print Edition

Light in the Eyes

Something a little different today: a process GIF from a recent illustration commission! This cat portrait was done start-to-finish in Manga Studio with Frenden's blue pencil and Hairpin Sable inker brushes. You notice how the cat really comes alive in that last frame when the white highlights in the eyes come into play? Every time … Continue reading Light in the Eyes

New Merch: “Fair Winds” & “Blissful Indifference” Postcards

I'm releasing two new postcard designs this week! They'll be coming in sets of 5 for $5—a mere buck-a-postcard—so hop over to my store to pre-order, or read on to learn more.

The writers gave me a ton of freedom when it came to matching birds and humans, so I got to run wild picking my favorite avian friends. Challenges included accurately translating … Continue reading The Ornithology of the American Lesbian

This means you can only find me there on Sunday (at Table 24B), but should totally show up both days to take full advantage … Continue reading Linework NW This Sunday

Emerald City Comicon Pre-Show Commissions

Hey gang! I'm trying out something new for Emerald City Comicon this year: pre-show commission slots! This hopefully means I'll be able to deliver a higher calibre of work to those of you looking for original art, while prioritizing my time talking to everyone on the show floor rather than hunching over my sketchbook desperately … Continue reading Emerald City Comicon Pre-Show Commissions

Process Post: Black Hand

A couple months ago I was delighted to receive an email from Glenn Fleishman, who some of you might remember as the fella who interviewed me for The New Disruptors earlier this year, asking if I wanted to work on an article about an imaginary friend for his publication The Magazine. I love the idea … Continue reading Process Post: Black Hand
