I was recently asked to contribute a piece to the Supahcute Science Fair show at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland and as a science dork I was pretty excited to be a part of the show. This is something I’ve actually been kicking around for a little while and this was a great reason to finally develop it.

I recently was asked to provide the cover for this month’s issue of VTKids. Since it’s February and apparently some places get snow this time of year they wanted something wintry and playing into the whole upcoming valentines day thing. Plus it worked out that they had a feature article on the best sledding spots in Vermont.

A friend asked me if I could draw her as Daenerys Targaryen but with Dachshunds instead of dragons. I couldn’t help but oblige.
I was recently asked to illustrate a couple of covers for this week’s Monterey County Weekly’s issue and holiday guide. I have never been to Monterey Bay but I love aquatic mammals and birds more than just about anything. Thanks to AD Karen Loutzenheiser from pretty much giving me free reign on these.
I’m not usually feeling very festive this time of year but for some reason I think this year I’m into it all, except the cold, I can’t deal with the cold.

"Reading Comics in the Park" for Light Grey Art Lab’s 6Degrees show. It’s a show about connections and everyone made postcards about who they are, where they live, things they do. For me I combined one of my favorite places in Seattle in Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill, and one of my favorite things reading comics in public.
There’s an opening reception this friday 12/6 at 7 PM at the Light Grey Art Lab, more info about that here. Prints of this are available here.

"Mrs. Shelley’s Class Grade 2"
Even though I don’t work in a school anymore fall for me still means back to school (well that and cider, doughnuts, and pumpkin everything) and I’m pretty sure if you ask my friends they’re tell you that this is how they think I see all children.
Jason vs. the Hydra for Silver Screen Society’s July movie "Jason and the Argonauts". Everybody always talks about the skeleton monsters from this movie but I think that the hydra with all of the heads moving independently is just as impressive.
