more color intaglio work
some intaglio and chinne collé portraits of my sister and I. Unfortunately the scanner doesn’t capture how beautiful the intaglio ink looks, but I like it!
An editorial spread done for an educational textbook, “English as a Second Language”. This was supposed to display a typically American scene, with all different kinds of people, so I picked a grocery store!
a town inhabited only by Abe Lincoln. Losely based off his autobiography, “The Humorous Mr. Lincoln”
this was based off a childhood memory, of me and my siblings trying to talk through tin cans and failing. Not my favorite, but one of the few times I’ve colored digitally!
outcast, gross, and crush illustrated in combination with illustrative text.

some work I did for my illustrated notebook class
based off the word, “afterlife” in a desire to portray the fear of not knowing.
A father daughter road trip cross-country, searching for the very best 24 hour diners!
About how in the city we may be surrounded by people, but completely alone.
A banner I made for an antique store in Minneapolis, “Hunt and Gather”.
I realized I never posted this! This was based off the broad topic of “Invisible World”, and rather than go the obvious fantasy route, I chose to deal with hidden feelings. It was printed out as a banner print, and will be judged to maybe be in a gallery!
My newest piece for topics, about the fear of technology overpowering us, based off the story, “The Veldt” by Ray Bradbury.
A piece I submitted for the SILA (Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles) illustration contest.
This was meant to be a portrait of Wes Anderson without actually showing his physical body.
