Here’s a piece in today’s Washington Post, about 11 Mistakes Novice Grillers Make - and how to Avoid Them. As an avid griller, I learned some valuable tips from this story. This piece worked as a cover illustration in the Food section, but also as a series of smaller spots interspersed in the story. Thanks to art director, Amanda Soto, for a super tasty assignment!

Here's a full-page illustration for HR Magazine. It accompanies a story about how group chat software is catching on as a form of communication in businesses. Because of it's more informal and conversational nature, Millennials consider group chat a superior form of company interaction. Older workers still prefer the more formal format of email. This article weighs the pros and cons of these communication methods. Popular group chat brands include Slack and HipChat. Thanks to art director Mari Adams for a super-timely tech assignment!

These portraits are part of a new series, inspired by Wheeler’s Photographic survey of the American West. From 1871-1873, George M Wheeler led an expedition to create topographic maps in the western states. He took with him two photographers, Timothy O’Sullivan and William Bell, to document the journey. For me, these landscape photos are inspirational launching points for portraits. The image above portrays naturalist John Muir, who was considered “Father of the National Parks”. Stay tuned, I’ll be posting more portraits soon! You can check out more personal projects at my new site!

Here's a little meditation on symbols. Without a doubt, the American bald eagle is a powerful representation of the freedom which America stands for. In contrast, the current U.S. president is glorifying the idea of building a "big beautiful wall" - which would run along our southern border with Mexico. To my mind, a project of such monumental proportion would create a different sort of symbol for the United States. I would argue that walls are completely incongruous with the freedom our country so proudly promotes. Please check out more illustrations at my new site!
