Awards are fun

I was just in NYC recently. Sari, my agent, handed me something that was mailed to her for me. Turns out I got a plaque for second place for ‘Excellence in Illustration’ for Hawaii Publishers Association Awards for this piece I did for Honolulu Magazine about feral cats in Honolulu. Had no idea it was even entered for anything.

Forgotten Lessons: For St. Louis Magazine

This was an interesting assignment. I enjoyed the challenge but definitely didn’t enjoy the subject matter. I was almost sick to my stomach when reading about this dark time in East St. Louis. It’s another eye opening moment in history that reminds us to just love one another and treat EVERYONE with love and the respect we’d want for ourselves. You can learn more at Wikipedia or just Googling 1917 race riots in East St. Louis.

New illustration for Portland Monthly

This was a really fun piece I did for Portland Monthly mag. It was a tribute to the year the Blazers brought the NBA championship home. Fun looking at the historical footage. There’s also a cool documentary about the team. 

New Illustration for GQ magazine

This was a fun piece I got to do for GQ magazine. Best part is I’m a subscriber and so getting the issue I’m worked for in the mail is super cool as always.

New Illustration for Down East Magazine

This was a fun feature for a story about the last hermit found living in a forest in Maine. He had been living a life of solitude for 27 years or so in the forest. Surviving mostly by stealing from houses near by. Finally found and arrested.

New illustration for Nickelodeon

I did this fun postcard for a Nickelodeon event as part of Super Bowl 51 weekend. Nickelodeon approached me to create this image for the back of a postcard promoting their Superstar Slime Showdown. It’s always fun to draw people doing action things.
