This is the first in a three painting series about what it would be like if Squirrels went to college. Take a glimpse into of one their many classes--Nut-trition 101!

Sweet Viking Magic
The idea for this cool viking musician came while I was at my day job (processing book covers). I had the sketch just sitting unfinished for a long time and finally decided to finish it after watching Lydia Nichols’s Skillshare class.
This was a lot of fun and I’ld like to add more illustrations to have a whole Viking band.

18″x27″, ink and photoshop
This is the first illustration in a series of predator and prey themed illustrations that will be used as the card art for Skull, a fun game I learned to play while in Minneapolis.
Nikolai Sees the World
This illustration was actually inspired by a snowy day. I was sitting at home thinking "what kind of animal enjoys the snow?" "A mountain goat!" Then I started thinking about what would happen if a young, Russian mountain goat from a small town decided to travel the world.
I made this poster at Sawtooth Printshop--an awesome letterpress printing and design shop in East Nashville. The linocut ram is by Nieves Uhl; design and layout by me.

It was an Axe-ident
This is the product of an unexpected creative burst. There are usually horrible puns involved when I have a creative burst.

Letterpress greeting card
I made this greeting card at Sawtooth Printshop--an awesome letterpress printing and design shop in East Nashville. I've always loved greeting cards and wanted to create one that looks very sweet, but actually sends a rude message.
Dinosaurs of the Cretaceous
I made this poster at Sawtooth Printshop in East Nashville. I did the design and layout and carved each dinosaur in a linoleum block. This is a 3 color poster using a pressure printing technique.
View From Home
This is the view from my parent’s front porch. There are a lot of images of houses that pop up when you think of “home”. I thought showing the view from home seemed more personal and familiar.
The Wolf and the Moon
"The wolf loves the moon so much he had to find a way to it. But, once he got there, he was so tired that he had to take a nap."
I’ve been looking for any excuse to create pieces as gifts for others. This one is for my sister-in-law and brother-in-law; I made it to go in the nursery for their first child.

Come Hell or High Water
This is my first real lettering piece. “Come Hell or High Water” is one of my favorite southern sayings. I’m hoping to make this part of a series and letter more southern sayings in the future.
