Let Me Introduce You to My Agent

Finding the right representative can be tricky business, which is why most freelancers tackle all aspects of their work. I have been extremely fortunate in connecting with a superb agency that represents a gamut of wonderful illustrators. This is a partnership that will let me focus on my favorite part of the illustration process: making magical pictures!

Infected By Art Volume 6 Category Awards

I am beyond excited to receive an award for an illustration I submitted to Infected by Art Volume 6! My "Virtues Series: Purity" placed 4th for the Grand Prize, received Gold in the Digital Art Category, and was a unanimously voted entry! Another piece of mine, "Virtues Series: Temperance" also made it into the book! I am baffled, amazed, and humbled to be in the company of such incredible artists. Many of these artists are my heroes and there is no shortage of work by other illustrators that deserve equal recognition. What a great way to start 2018 and get me motivated for the next adventure in illustration!

Steampunk Shenanigans

This past month I had the pleasure of holding a workshop at The Orange Space in Redlands where I talked about concept ideation and composition. The recently opened space is host to rentable work tables and monthly guest talks by creatives and entrepreneurs. It's a cool place to stop by after you've grabbed your à la minute ice cream.

There are two upcoming adventures this month for the time traveler and art collector! The first is the Iron Horse- Family Steampunk Carnivale on March 18-19 from 10am-5pm. It is on the grounds of the Orange Empire Railway Museum, which houses many a historical locomotive, including ones you can ride during the event. There will be live entertainment and Victorian-inspired vendors, which is where you will find me! I will be bringing signed prints, originals, and other collectible items. Both modern-dressed and Steampunked civilians are welcome!

Just a week after will be the bi-annual Downtown Redlands Art Walk on March 26 from 12pm-6pm. The art walk is always free to attend and continues to grow in size. It's a great time to grab a bite to eat and peruse the local artists on State St, Citrus Ave, and 5th St. I will be among several artists exhibiting indoors at the Cope Building, so come inside and find us!
