My final project for my Intro to Illustration class based on Ted Chiang’s amazing short story “Exhalation”.
This next week is going to be absolutely crazy for me, so as a quick stress relief I took an hour to draw this small group of post-apocalyptic survivors.
Jack of Diamonds
My submission to the MCARD Kickstarter project. It was fun to design a piece for a much smaller print size.
Interview with Chase Van Weerdhuizen: A Comic Artist
My friend Joe Donovan recently had to do an interview for a Media project. If you’d like to see me ramble on about comics, you can check it out here.
A submission I did for my friend Liz Berger’s Pokemon zine. I didn’t realize when I started drawing this how many fond memories I have of Pokemon Sapphire. Torchic and Absol were always on my team.
A preview of my next zine project Barbarians, Dragons, and Crushes.
Some “Goblin Stacks” that I did during a long class period in honor of Brando Hughes’ ”Dog Stacks”.
For some reason the drawings I do on the backs of papers during class turn out looking way nicer than my sketchbook ever does.
I just wanted to give a head’s up that I will be away from my stock of prints and zines when I head home for the holidays. That means the last day that you can purchase something from my online store will be December 12. It will then open again on January 13.
You can find my store here.
MCAD’s having it’s annual art sale this Thursday through Saturday!
The comic studio space has been transformed into an area to check out comic work by students, buy work and books and there’s even a sketch table area that I’ll be sitting at all three days!
If you’re in the area you should come by and check out some work and get a sketch!
I’ll be sketching in the comic studio every day of the MCAD Art Sale! Nov 21 and 22 you have to pay to get in, but on the 23 you can get in absolutely free. You should definitely drop by. Mention you follow this blog and I’ll draw you something a little extra special.
My contribution to a larger group project on the senses for my Intro to Illustration class. Although spiciness is not a traditionally recognized western flavor, it is considered a sixth flavor in many Asian countries.
Beyond the spicy subject matter, this piece was a great opportunity to play with color palette, cartooning, composition, and pattern.
Comic Media and Concepts Assignment - Dual Narratives
My online store is filled to the brim with small prints and zines that I’d love to mail out to you. US and Canadian shipping is only $3 and, as an added incentive, all orders come with a quick sketch done by yours truly. Just click here to place your orders.

I’m also looking for small illustration/comics jobs. If you have any leads or would like to hire me yourself, please shoot me an ask or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Enter the Floradrome
A poster I did for a terrarium building event at MCAD. It’s always fun to push your color palette in strange directions you’ve never tried before.
Daw Aung San Suu Kyi
