A collection of patterns made for my Digital Illustration class with Lindsay Nohl. This project forced me out of my comfort zone kicking and screaming. Excited to move forward and apply these hard lessons to my next projects. 

Wanted to do something quick and fun before a weekend of hard work, so I put together this quick submission for MCAD Fight Club Zine.The collection will feature MCAD students drawing themselves as fighting game characters à la Streetfighter. My fighter is a modern-day cleric who uses ritual dance to summon powerful tornado god attacks.

My poster for MCAD Student Affairs covering all the student Halloween events for October. The final poster’s dimensions sit at 12x38 inches making it a bit too wide for Tumblr, but you can click the top image to see every detail.

The Joys of Owning a Pet

My finished piece from 24 Hour Comic Day yesterday. They always say that your third year is the year that you actually get to enjoy making your comic and that held true for me. I had a lot of fun putting this piece together, but I had even more fun leading MCAD’s 24 Hour Comic Day event which had the largest attendance since I’ve been here. 

Porcupine Girl 

My first long assignment for Bob Algeo’s Storytelling class. I’ve been posting cardboard drawings like this on my Instagram for a while, but I hadn’t done a full comic with these materials until now. 

The New Place is now printed and up for sale up on my Storenvy!

It’s taken me a while to get it put together and printed, but now that it’s done it sure looks great. At standard comic size, this book contains 24 pages of black and white art for $5!

And as always make sure to leave a little note in your order and I’ll do a quick spooky doodle of whatever you want.

"No, No, Not Rogov!" By Cordwainer Smith
My first assignment for Comics Storytelling with Bob Algeo where we had to distill a single story down to 9 panels. It was the perfect opportunity to retell this eccentric, little sci-fi story I first read while sick and soaking in the bathtub.

I figured it was finally time to let Mirko have a solo adventure. Unfortunately he doesn’t do too well when he doesn’t have Gobby around to check his enthusiasm.

I had a little money to spare from my summer job working as an alternative school tutor (I’ll be posting about that experience soon), so I commissioned my good friend Pen to draw Gobby and Mirko. Pen is one of the best artists at MCAD right now and I was beyond excited to commission her. She captured their personalities perfectly and I can’t stop smiling when I see it!
If you want to commission Pen you can find her commission info here.

My Goblin Treasure Hunter character and his boyfriend Mirko, a sand elf barbarian. I’ve posted a few pictures of Mirko on my Instagram and I’ll be posting a short comic featuring him soon, but until now I hadn’t had the chance to actually draw him with Gobby.

Science Fiction and Fairy Tales (7/7)
When the emperor’s daughter Briar Rose fell ill to an uncurable disease on her sixteenth birthday, her father had a mighty war golem converted into a cryogenic preservation machine to protect her until a cure could be found. The empire has long since been lost to time, but the golem still roams the halls of the castle, guarding Briar’s body and waiting for a cure.
