Johnstown Flood

shazam! drowning! again!

Brooks Sumner Affair

So in 1856 this crazy pro-slavery congressman from South Carolina (Preston Brooks) beat anti-slavery senator Charles Sumner with his cane right in the middle of the senate chamber. Brooks was so into it he kept right on walloping poor Charles (who was trapped at his desk) until the cane broke. Intense.

Need more information on this?


This is the re-designed layout i put together for that yikes magazine assignment. Yikes is right.

Tenement Housing

This painting almost sent me into a depression.

Embarrassing School Moments

These are spots for one of those embarrassing moments articles from YIKES magazine. Hilarious. There's "my pants fell down in spanish class," "my dorky mom was a field trip chaperone," "i puked on my crush," and "i fell down the stairs at middle school graduation"

Happy Birthday

These are my images for a et of birthday invites & thank-yous I'm making to sell at ArtMarket. The idea is that they're not pink and glittery or covered in trucks...I want them to be for everybody. The invites will also come with a paper mustache. The upside of knowing that probably nobody will buy them is that I'll get to keep some and use them...

The Nerds and The Wussies

Here are the other two pieces in my elementary school outcasts series. I'm pretty happy with them. And now I really want to play dodgeball.

This is my words on wheels piece, a poem by Brianna Knight Grade 8

Having amnesia can be as simple
as forgetting your name,
as seeing your face during the day
and forgetting it at night,

as helpless as a child
wandering around not knowing where you are.

How did I get this way? Is this
a curse set upon me?

Am I in a trance? Is my mind
being controlled?

For, I am forever traveling the
path of this lonely journey.

Will I ever remember where I’m
from? Or who I am?

House That Jack Built Dog

This is the dog, that worried the cat, that killed the rat, that ate the malt, that lay in the house that Jack built.

and this is also the spot illustration that will accompany it on the opposing page.

Aged Warrior In Epic Changepurse Battle

This was a truly heinously boring article about the unmanageable cost of retirement...somehow I arrived at this. But it was fun. And now I have a whole new respect for buicks.

(look at it bigger, it's WAY better that way.)

These are some of the sketches for the book dummy. A few of them (more than a few if i'm lucky) will go to final eventually. Here's the malt that lay in the house that jack built, the rat that ate the malt, the dog that worried the cat, and the maiden all forlorn.

The House That Jack Built

So here's the cover of the book I'm working on for class.

Dog, Broom, Radio Tower

This is kind of wacky, I know, but we were meant to show harmony, tension, and selection using a dog, a broom and a radio tower. I like mine, its a little bit hip, I think.
