Year of the Flood

I made this charcoal illustration for the March "Ex Libris" show in Seattle. Its inspired by one of my favorite books, Margaret Atwood's "Year of the Flood".

Bike Poster Preview!

This is my design for Artcrank 2013! So excited to be a part of it year after year. This is the digital version of what the screen print will hopefully look like. I didnt have time to print my own this year, unfortunately, so Ive enlisted the help of my friend Matt, who runs Dueltone Printmaking here in Portland, OR. He can do amazing things. The show is always a must see, but this year for sure. Daria Tessler, Blaine Fontana and Kegan Onefoot-Wenkman are among the many talented artists.

Waking Up

I used to have a lot of nightmares where I was being chased by someone or something. It was usually some sort of dark entity or invisible force trying to harm or kill me. I had those dreams so much that I started learning how to wake myself up. I would close my eyes and either float or fly upwards into the clouds. The clouds representing consciousness. Sometimes I would wake up right as I could feel a hand grabbing my foot.

The Charming Sisters

This is my piece for the Circus themed show happening this month at the Peoples Art Gallery in Portland. I decided to take it back to the old style and use charcoal. It is still one of my favorite processes and I have decided I will be using it a lot more for my upcoming shows. While I do love color, there is just something about black and white that feels more natural and almost dream-like to me.

Celestial Beings



These were some of the pieces I had up at Redux in April. Inspired by aliens, underwater organisms, and higher beings. Weird, I know, but in my head it all makes sense. 

T-Shirt Design


I timed this one. About 7 hours from start to finish... with a few breaks in between. Its for AIGA's dMob event on July 10th. Its a BYOTEE shirt party that takes place at Rontoms. I hope its not too complex for a screen print t-shirt design. The ones from the past years were on the simpler side. If some of the detail gets lost in the process that is ok. Might look even cooler that way. If you want a shirt with this on it, come to the party. Its going to be fun!

Mas Dia de los Muertos skulls






Ive been stuck in a drawing rut for the past few weeks. Havent drawn anything since my beloved kitty passed away. So I thought to get back into the swing of things I would draw something fun. I was debating on whether to give them all black backgrounds. Or should I just leave them the way they are? Sometimes the hardest part for me is deciding.
I will be framing these and putting them up in my etsy store very soon.

These two drawings are currently hanging up at Meat, Cheese, Bread.

Yes, More Matryoshkas




















You might be tired of seeing these, but Im not tired of drawing them yet. They are still a lot of fun and I feel like I am getting better at them. I got a few requests for more of these for some holiday shoppes. I will also be making a book. If you are interested in buying any of these they are currently for sale at these places: Ristretto RoastersPink Door Boutique, and Antler Annex (read more about it here.)

Wonder Fair Halloween Mask




This is a digital version of a screen printed mask I made for Wonder Fair's "100 Ghost Stories". I didnt get to spend as much time on this as I had hoped. Most people in the show took advantage of the rest of the white space around the mask. Check them out in their online store.

Endangered Animals

This is a charcoal illustration done for Compound Gallery's "An Ounce of Power" show. One thing I am so passionate about is nature conservancy. Doing the research for this illustration was very eye opening and depressing. Lots of beautiful creatures are on the brink of extinction or have already become extinct. Because I only had a limited amount of time to make this, I had to narrow the list down to North American species. I still was unable to fit a few animals such as the Right Whale and the Giant Sea Bass. But everything else, including the plants are some of our continents most endangered.

Dangers of the Deep Unknown

Drawn for the "Giant" show at Ponyclub Gallery. Outerspace and the depths of the ocean are two things that fascinate and frighten me. Mostly because they are so dark, deep, and vastly unexplored. This illustration is a mixture of the real and the fantastical.
