I’ve recently returned from a trip to the Steiermark region of Austria. Besides being known as the birthplace of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Steiermark is home to many regional legends and mythical creatures.
In February 2019, I was commissioned by Planet Labs in San Francisco to create a mural for their new offices. I had participated in an artist residency program with Planet in 2015, so it was nice to hear from them about this opportunity.
For the last month, I've given myself a crash course on the latest in on-demand printing and online shopping options. It started because I was confused with the fees Etsy was charging me and, before I knew it, I was selling women's stretch pants from my own online store using a modern API powered on-demand e-commerce platform.
I created a full page illustration to accompany a feature about the future of transportation in California.
Alameda California based satellite delivery company Astra contracted me to create a modular patch for their first series of launch missions.
For this lesson, I'll show you how to make a hamburger using mainly the Ellipse Tool and the selection tools.
In the Summer of 2018, I decided to re-create the wallpaper pattern from my grandparent’s house. It’s a very particular early 1960s five-color design and it immediately reminds me of home.
This pin was a suggestion from Su Lee herself. You might remember that Su Lee is the proprietor of Oriental Art Gallery, a vintage enamel pin shop in San Francisco…
I made some album artwork recently for the sci-fi-surf-rock band Aloha Screwdriver. Their new EP is called "Above Snakes" and they were open to any interpretation of that. There's an undertone of western grit on this record and I thought maybe a traveling snake oil salesman theme might work. Then, for some reason, I got the idea that it should be in three dee.
had the Brother SE400 sewing/embroidery machine sitting in my Amazon "Save For Later" list for a long time. I've always loved patches and I've even designed a few myself, but I thought maybe someday it would be great to just make one or two
'm happy to introduce my first collaboration with San Francisco's favorite vintage pin shop, "Oriental Art Gallery". Proprietor Su Lee was very excited to learn that I design pins and suggested a special Quan Yin pin for the shop.
2016 is just about over, so it's time for another installment of my "Year In Pics". I'm changing the name to "Things I Did" because that feels more productive. There are lots of things that I did that didn't make the cut. Thanks to all of my friends and family that made this year extra interesting.
I recently finished this custom-painted Kidrobot Munny figure inspired by my favorite Sesame Street muppet, "Mr. Johnson". He was the continually-disgruntled customer at Grover's diner. Grover, as an overworked waiter, would mess up his order every time and Mr. Johnson would be left brimming with disappointment.
I've been working on some comics under the title, ABSURDUM. The first story is called "Companionship" and the plan was to tell it in three parts. However, I would like to keep going with it, so stay tuned for that. I've been posting my comics on Patreon,a site that let's people support artists at a monthly donation of their choosing.
