Oh HEY look at that, I’m gonna be at Rose City Comic Con this weekend down in Portland! RCCC has been an absolute pleasure the past couple of years, so I’m psyched to go back for my third year. Stop by to say hi, chat, whatever!
My boy Justin Oaksford (O-10) and my buddy Bridget Underwood (P-7) have tables this year as well, so swing by and say hi! Do not let their names deceive you, they are not actually hobbits- just crazy talented artists who don’t like to wear shoes.
See you guys in a couple days, <3
Juuuust now realizing I can show my piece for the Iron Giant tribute show as well! Judging from this and my Bioshock piece, I’m really into trompe l’oeil and obscure references right now.
The Iron Giant is still one of my favourite animated films, and Dean is still one of my favourite animated hotties. Mmmm boy.
Finished my piece for LTD Gallery’s Press Start III: Turbo Edition art show at the very last minute! I had this idea some six odd years ago (good lord) and it seemed like as good an opportunity as any to execute on it for the show. Possibly spoilery for Bioshock? Buuuut also possibly way too obscure to spoil anyone.
I’ll be at the opening tonight up on the hill- hope to see some of you guys there!
…Yes. Yes it is.
It's inexplicably mid-July all over again, which means it’s time for San Diego Comic-Con International! I’m not tabling, but I am on four panels this year in some feeble attempt to spend as little time on the exhibition floor as is possible. I’ll also be dressed as Asha/Yara Greyjoy on Saturday, because what is SDCC without sweating through several layers of waxed linen. Here’s my schedule, if you want to track me down:

Can’t wait to see some of you guys there!
My steampunk Sailor Uranus (that’s Admiral Tenoh, thankyouverymuch) for Moon Crisis: A Sailor Moon Tribute Show down in Anaheim, CA!
I love the idea of doing customized/unique uniforms for each of the senshi, especially if it means I get to put Haruka in a more tailored/militaristic getup. I have designs sitting around for the rest of the senshi, but… but let’s be honest. I’m lucky I finished one design in time for this show.

I am not currently taking commissions and requests! You're more than welcome to ask, but I can almost guarantee what the answer is going to be.
Graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 2008, work at Microsoft Game Studios as a Concept Artist, love snakes and westerns and national park rangers and social justice.
