Sitting Bull


His name was Sitting Bull, but as an advocate for indigenous rights, 

he towered like a Standing Rock.

Princeton Pod Life

With a pandemic raging, Princeton students aren't allowed to set foot on campus, but this doesn’t mean they can’t emulate university life. Many are forming pods of five or more students, and living together in houses across the country. Living responsibly under the same roof, they can share in their educational experiences, and form a lasting camaraderie. Thanks to art director, Marianne Nelson (at Princeton Alumni Weekly) for another fun assignment!

Below are sketches i submitted for this piece:

Harvard Remote Learning


Here are some drawings for Harvard Magazine. In this age of COVID, even a school with a 40-billion dollar-endowment has struggled with the limitations of remote learning. This article is about how they’re attempting to make the virtual experience more engaging and meaningful for students. The drawing above addresses ways in which Harvard is attempting to make zoom called more interactive, and multi-dimensional (with polls, charts, breakout sessions, etc) 

A history professor is exploring the idea of 3D tours of cultural monuments and ruins.
Music students are collaborating remotely to compose group compositions.

Harvard has an excellent IT staff to support needs of professors.

Enormous thanks to art director, Jennifer Carling, for another super-fun assignment!

Congressman John Lewis

On the day I was born, SNCC members marched across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, from Selma, AL to Montgomery, MS, protesting for the right for black people to vote in the south.  Because these peaceful marchers were treated so violently, it was called Bloody Sunday. Coverage of this event brought much attention to their cause, and spurred on other marches and activism. Months later, the Voting Rights act of 1965 was signed by LBJ. One organizer for that march was just a college student, John Lewis. He would eventually go on to serve in the United States congress for seventeen terms. Regarding Black Lives Matter, this man marched through life fighting for civil rights all the way through. He was an American icon, and he will be missed.
