    Work in progress on a gig poster for War on Drugs. This is the first poster I’ve collaborated on! As some of you may know, Nicolet Schenck and I have started Solid Shout together. I’ll pulling her in on this project and I can’t wait to see how her skills can be applied to this! I’m handling the type (which I’ve painted) and she’ll be adding some imagery for the base layer of the poster, stay tuned for more!

    Today I get to announce Adfero 8! It’s a list of the people and trends that are set to change the communication landscape in 2014. It was so fun coming up with concepts and watching this transform into something real. Check it out and make sure to take the quiz! :)

    Some, but not all, of the work I did for the upcoming “Fun-A-Day” show in Baltimore. It’s a rare occasion I pick up a paintbrush these days.

    My first published illustration is officially complete.  It is so satisfying to find your illustrations all printed, bound together, and paired with text in your mailbox.  

    I worked with Beer Advocate Magazine to create a full page illustration for their “Class of 2013” article highlighting some of the best breweries to open in 2013.  I decided to create a jumble of buildings, hop plants, and beer cans that reference each brewery specifically, all wrapped up in a red ribbon to be cut.  An I Spy of sorts!

    If you’d like to see a detailed view of the illustration, check it out on my website

    Soooo proud of my girl Nicolet. These are BEAUTIFUL
