Butterflies (I)

A year and a half after my fundraising efforts for the 2015 ALC resulted in a list of commissions for various donors, I'm FINALLY all done! This is a piece created for one of my oldest friends, and I'm awfully proud of it. Thank you again to all of my supporters!

Apocalypse and Archangel (I)

Still one of the best plot twists/character redesigns ever. Angel became...well, useful. I've been an X-Men fan since way way back, but I'm not so keen on the movies. Still haven't seen this one...

Sick Day Jelly (I)

I remember one of the first pieces of art that I made where I went, "Wow! Look what I did!" It was this jellyfish I drew on a cross-country plane trip - I must have been flying home on a break from freshman year in college. I drew the thing from my head, then I got super detailed with colored pencils. I think I still have it around somewhere...anyway, I like things with tentacles.

In preparation for some upcoming projects, I drew/painted this on a recent sick day from work. No photoshop, y'all, and it's freeeeaky not having a control-z option!

Dungeons and Dragons (I)

Looking for a distraction from nursing school madness, I joined a Dungeons & Dragons group that met every other Sunday. A year and a half later, we've successfully completed our first major campaign, and Greyhawk is safe from Tiamat! (You're welcome.) This is a poster I made for my Murder Hoboes, the six most excellent dudes I've had the honor of fighting alongside these past months. Having a place to go to for a few hours every other week has really helped to ground me, in school and in the intensity of my new job - this illustration is the least I could do to show my gratitude.

The Quality of Life Promotional Design (GD)

An AIDS Ride donation reward turned into the promotional design for a friend's play, coming to life in San Francisco very soon. If it's anything like The Goat, it should be truly exceptional. Below are the postcard (front and back), poster, and online banner designs for Monday Afternoon Production.

Kitsune Christmas (I)

To close out one year and open up another, here's my holiday card design for 2015, a kitsune and her owl gettin' all peaceful-like. No idea where this idea came from...

I hope your holidays have been exactly what you wanted them to be. Happy New Year!
