An illustration I made for the Winter 2016 issue of Colorado Summit Magazine, about how "a serious shortage of worker housing turns apartment hunting into a joke." Check out the article here!
Art Director Kate Madden assigned a series of cartoon Sasquatch illustrations, a variety of more realistic animal illustrations, and a full page map of the Mount St. Helens area. It was a lot of fun to work in different styles, and then to see them come together in such an interesting and good looking feature!
Squatch takes part in a variety of outdoor activities, navigating the area, observing and photgraphing the unique landscape, and teaching us about it’s history.
Animals populate the map and field guide. You can find out what these critters are up to here: Life Goes On: Mount St. Helen’s Flora and Fauna.

I’m honored to have illustrated a feature for Portland Monthly’s Fall Arts Review featuring collaborations from a diverse field of local creatives.
Here are some pen and ink illustrations for the Portland Monthly Magazine‘s “Best of the City” issue, included in a guide to Portland’s many vintage shops. One for each decade from the 1920’s to the noughties.
A few portrait illustrations I’ve produced using digital and traditional processes.

Portland’s creative class has a strong affinity for all things DIY, and zine culture is no exception. For the last 13 years the Independent Publishing Resource Center has been helping artists and writers of all kinds put indie ink to paper in Portland’s SW. This month the IPRC starts a new chapter; crossing the river and growing into its new space in southeast Portland.
To help them celebrate, and for a chance to say goodbye to the old space, folks are gathering at Sizzle Pie (west), March 14th from 7pm – 10pm. The event will also serve as the release party for the appropriately themed Stumptown Underground #21, Memory & the Past.

Sometimes a life-sized piano-grilled toy robot wants to share its love so badly it is willing to risk piloting a child’s tricycle in order to bring it to you.
Despite what you may assume from that innocent face, this robot has been around the block. I added the piano key smile in honor of the musical mayhem of Portland’s own Solovox and a round of his flyers. Stumptown Underground included Hot-Wheeling Robot Love in their 8th issue “Everybody do the Robot”, and good: a gallery asked him to announce their first robot_love exhibit.
This is the kind of brilliance that’s possible with two Art Directors; one that designs beautiful promotions for the best talent in town, and one who is seven years old.
