Here are some recent watercolor sketches you might've missed if you're not following my Instagram! If you prefer, I also include Instagram updates on my Twitter, plus plenty of updates on my dog and political leanings and funny retweets.

I'm back on Etsy! Commission a pet portrait

I'm back on Etsy! I am still using my Society6 shop to for prints, greeting cards, leggings, tapestries, throw blankets, mugs, and more, since printing and packaging orders for these was either too time consuming or impractical for me. (I used to sell prints and greeting cards from my Etsy shop, and could not provide the speed or quality of Society6, let alone the other products). My Etsy shop is for commissions and custom work.

If you want a custom pet or animal portrait for a gift or memorial, this is the place! I also offer custom bug drawings, animal silhouettes, fruit and vegetable illustrations, and more. Order now for a custom portrait of your cat, dog, bunny, lizard, or other critter now to get it in time for the holidays!

Illustrations for East Bay Parent-Child Playgroup

Flyer and illos made for my day job at Our Family Coalition. This is one of our most popular playgroups. 

The illustrations were drawn in Photoshop using the Wacom Bamboo tablet I have at the office. The color is layer masked in watercolor washes I painted myself at home. 

Very much inspired by the work of Rebecca Cobb.

Solo Parent Kangaroo and Flyer Design

An illustration and flyer layout I made for my day job at Our Family Coalition. This single parent kangaroo - I think a single queer dad - wears a fanny pack to carry around their joey instead of a built-in pouch. 

Drawn in Photoshop and Illustrator with the Bamboo Wacom tablet I have at the office.

Butterfly Boxes Revisited

In college I made some faux-taxidermy vegan butterfly and specimen boxes. The boxes were made of Davey board and PVA and unfortunately disintegrated over the course of several moves and a long time storage. When I happened on these cute shadowbox frames at a garage sale, I revisited the project with some brand new butterfly cutouts.

Watercolor pencil and digital illustrations I made for my organization's LGBTQ Inclusive Preschool fairs. Directly above and below are a couple of details. Following that is an email layout and the bookmarkers I made to promote the events.
