HELLO

I like to draw animals.  Whether it's anthropomorphic fun or creating informative illustrations and raising awareness about endangered species.  

The natural world is amazing, but it can also be gross and kind of hilarious. I hope that by getting people to laugh at their relationships with nature (humans' unreasonable fear of bats, for instance) I will also get them to care about wild creatures a little bit more. 


Interesting projects I've worked on:

  • I co-founded The Endangered Species Print Project which raised over $15,000 for wildlife conservation.

  • Illustrations for the first Endangered Species Condom Project which was profiled in The New York Times, featured on a billboard in Times Square, and won two Addy awards.

  • Recent publications that include my work: the book City Creatures (published in 2015), Orion magazine (Winter 2017) and Prickly Pear Kids magazine (expected publication date Spring 2018)

  • Recent exhibitions: Animal Umwelt at iMOCA Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, City Creatures at Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum (Chicago), and Rare Nature also at Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.
