Published in an October, 2015 Entertainment Weekly Issue for their article about the song lyrics that Kidz Bop changes to keep music "kid friendly". If you couldn't guess the trio, it's Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, and Macklemore (left to right). Thank you to art director, Aaron Morales for the opportunity to illustrate this fun piece!

Published in Entertainment Weekly for their Fall Books Preview article, August 2015. Thank you to art director, Aaron Morales for the chance.

I'm quite pleased that they took to one of my more abstract ideas than what they requested and it echoed a piece of mine that they liked. Be sure to check out the magazine!

Let's Play Dress Up!

Little Lady Knight, Olivia, likes to play dress up. I thought it would be fun to do a pattern of her dressing up as things other than a knight.

Revisited an old piece done a year ago and I'd have to say this was so much more fun to do. We had to do a series of 2.5 x 2.5 inch icons for class with an interesting concept! These animals are some of the brave and lucky to make it into space -- the final frontier.

Let's Read!

Each of us gets two pages in our year’s senior books and this is the second page of mine. The chairman and Jillian agreed that the tennis piece would represent me the best, so I had to pull this out before the last day of classes on Weds. 

This is a complete redo an old piece I did the semester before and, boy, did it ever come out better.

Small thing of boys playing tennis. A lot of my friends play and it's always fun watching them. I'm still rusty from the winter, but at least it's warming up so we can all play again.

 A colorful cast of characters enjoy a night at the tavern over a fun poker game.    They are    are from   Tactics Ogre: Let’s Cling Together   from   Final Fantasy Tactics.   It’s   such a pretty tarot card deck  . (You can get your own set   here  !) All characters belong to their owners.

This is one of the few illustrations from a children's book I'm currently working on. It's based off the origin story of the tanabata festival in Japan about star-crossed lovers.

Concept Art - Hansel & Gretel

A fun project where I worked on some concept art for Hansel and Gretel, capturing the moment when right when good prevails! It was a fun exercise to come up with characters and create a world.

Personal Tarot - The Star
Personal Tarot - The Star

XVII - The Star - hope, spirituality, renewal, inspiration, serenity

This piece is meant to be my personal card in the series. To represent the hope I feel in the concept of love in general.

 

Personal Tarot - Temperance

XIV - Temperance - Balance, moderation, patience, purpose

The most recent relationship I'm in, encompasses all of this. It's this balance of us that I find the most comfort in.

Personal Tarot - Strength

VIII - Strength - courage, patience, empowerment

Find a balance between your basic drives and higher aspirations. If there is conflict in your situation, Strength may be advising you to face your adversary with love and compassion.

0 - The Fool - new beginnings and embracing your follies

This series was a personal project where the relationships of my past are represented as cards. This one represented the first school relationships. Things were new, but still very sheltered.

Another editorial as per this article. I thought it was slightly sad to hear that the elderly were kicked out for loitering at a McDonald's. All people need a place to chill out, no matter how old.

Starting the year off in Portfolio class with editorial pieces to get my mind into better gear. This is for an article called “The Next Data Privacy Battle May Be Waged Inside Your Car.” Hope it makes a sliver of sense. I actually enjoyed drawing this out.
