I turned 24 this past week! Made this banner thing to celebrate. 23 was really good for the last part of it — 24’s shaping up to be way, way better already.
Anyone that says high school/college were the best years is 1. lying and 2. probably full of shit.
MYSTERY SOLVING LADY DUO! Finished illo from the demo I did for Phoebe’s class at the University of Michigan.
I always wondered, as a kid, whether the super sleuths of the 60s books I read were sleeping together. Probably.
Did a demo today (complete with 2 hours of sleep and wonkily drawn anatomy) for Phoebe Gloeckner’s digital painting class over at my alma mater, umstampsschool. This is the ink drawing I used for it — I’ll probably be posting the finished piece sometime tomorrow or on the weekend.
If you’re a student and you’re finding me because of that, HELLO! I’m probably following your blog too. Don’t make shitty art. I’ll be ~watching.
My exceptionally smug letter R for a Detroit Design Festival Happening that I’m design lead on, Detroit Dropcaps.
If you’re attending the Design Festival, stop by Eastern Market After Dark and make a dropcap — we’ll be arranging them all on walls and making words out of them.
Here are my favorite sketches from recently! Just got a new brush pen — it’s a pocket brush pen by Pentel, as recommended by axazel. Literally lifechanging. I want to draw everything forever with a brush now.
Bouncy house icon! For the app I’m working on. I’m relearning animation in after effects & photoshop for this, and it’s pretty awesome fun.

Hey, new followers—- I’m pretty slow about updating lately, since I’m on a large contract job, but here is a bit of my sketchbook from a road trip to Iowa this past weekend!
Banana. Banabas. Bananba. (Aka, I get a piece of fruit with my takeout lunch at work and lately I’ve been drawing on the peels before eating them.)

heya! As mentioned a second ago, I haven’t been getting notifications :/ the artwork’s been down for a couple months but I have it over at my studio, Riopelle, at 1492 Gratiot. We’ll be open to the public the weekend after this one if you want to drop by. :)
