  1. This is my submission to a Maurice Sendak tribute gallery show that will be debuting in Baltimore from October 6th - January in the Enoch Pratt Library. I’m excited to see the other pieces!
I’ve only read Where The Wild Things Are so it felt natural for me to do a piece dedicated to that book. I can still remember when my mom read it to me as a kid.  This is my submission to a Maurice Sendak tribute gallery show that will be debuting in Baltimore from October 6th - January in the Enoch Pratt Library.

  2. Here’s me making a weird face while standing next to a giant print of one of my pieces. It was an accident that the stripes on my shirt blend in with the background color Here’s me making a weird face while standing next to a giant print of one of my pieces.

  4. Here is the piece I did for the Fifth Element Book. I decided to illustrate the crazy character from the beginning that tries to rob Bruce Willis. This is my rendition what his room would look like.  Here is the piece I did for the Fifth Element Book. I decided to illustrate the crazy character from the beginning that tries to rob Bruce Willis.

  6. I’ve been wanting to read Moomin for so long. I think it’s time I gave in and bought the first book. I always see the characters floating around on the internet and I love the designs so much.

  8. Here’s another guy that’ll be appearing in my zine “We’re All Ugly.” What could he be shouting? If you’re at spx chances are I might come up and trade with you! Ideally I would like to come in a costume that looked exactly like this (the mouth would be where I put my face). Unfortunately I have no fibers skills. I’ll just have to walk around with this expression on my face.  Here’s another guy that’ll be appearing in my zine “We’re All Ugly.” What could he be shouting?
