More from my larger project in the Chicago Field Museum! This time North American birds with jewelry from all over the world, and two finished portraits! Dylan has thai art in the background of his portrait.
Every year (for the past… 5 years? Maybe?) I’ve made my brother a cover to his own comic book where he and our dogs star. This year I made 2, since last year I got as far as making the title but didn’t have time to actually illustrate the rest of it. Man, if you … Continue reading
I am filling up my sketchbook with these things. I CAN’T STOP. (also I found out I like drawing butts haha) Tom of Finland, for those not in the know, is not something to look up at work. A very NSFW queer artist.

My portraits of “elegant men” for an “elegant” Canadian whiskey label. They had subtitles along the lines of “For the discerning man” and … Continue reading
Another project where we had to invent a story and character – this time I went with the opposite of my last two characters – see Boanna and Evangeline if you’re curious. Sahas, my main character, is an assosiate professor at the University of Delhi in India. The summary of his story: Born in the Tamil … Continue reading
Last semester I started a project creating a new space using objects and people that I could draw from life but that were not necessarily related to each other. I really liked the idea of taking the Field Museum collection and creating my own museum in an alternate world where the exhibits make sense only … Continue reading
