My first solo show, Prior Art, is now up at Kaleid Gallery in downtown San José from now ’til November 25th. The theme of the show is “analog media manipulation and vintage virtual reality.”

3 of 30 original watercolor portraits • 3.2" x 4.2" each

Creepy Ancestors

Because it’s Halloween, and I wanted to loosen up a bit, I leaned a bit more towards caricatures and intentionally skewed them to look creepy.

Coffin Vogue • 2.25" x 7.25" each

Coffin Vogue

A little creative reuse led to these spooky holiday decorations.

How to Be Small • 23" x 13" framed

How to Be Small

I’m feeling a bit weary of the daily outrages this political season and opted to focus instead on more universal follies: how lack of critical thinking and/or empathy can shut a person off from the world.

Editorial cartoons for the Mustang Daily

Over the course of four years I drew editorial cartoons for the Mustang Daily, the student-run daily newspaper for Cal Poly State University (San Luis Obispo).

Rebus sketches

Sketches: Rebus Time

I took suggestions from various artgoers about compound words that could be made from other words.

Bathers Series

It’s the first day of summer, an excellent time to debut more work in the Bathers series. There are now six!

The Raven

The Raven

It occurred to me that both this Alice in Wonderland riddle and Poe’s poem “The Raven” reference the same themes: writing, ravens, and a touch of madness.

Belva Lockwood

Again, in the spirit slightly odd vintage photo captions, she was described as “famous lawyer and bicycle rider.”

Sketches: More Undefined Variables

Much like my first notebook (Object Oriented) I started running out of ink at about the 3/4 mark, right near the end of these.

Character moods, created for a Weight Watchers customer journey map

Compelling Characters and Customer Journeys

Though normally there isn’t much crossover between my artwork and my experience design work, this project fell squarely between the two.

Peace, Love, and Understanding • 7.5" x 8"

Peace, Love, and Understanding

I found these little frames with comic-strip-like sections and thought it would work well with a three-part phrase.

Canon 50d Pocket Guide, Accordion Bound

Accordion Book for a Quickstart Manual

I put my Bookbinding I skills to work to create an accordion book for a quickstart manual for a used camera we recently picked up, the Canon EOS 50D.

Statement VIII • 10" x 8"

Statement VIII

This one is my photographer friend Jillian who took the reference shot for Statement I. During a different shoot for reference photos I noticed she was wearing a white shirt while I saw her reviewing photos. I asked to include her in this series, and here she is!
