TOMS Event at Zumiez

Another successful TOMS Style Your Sole Event! Last weekend I got to customize TOMS shoes with a handful of very talented artists for the day. Above are some of my favorites. If you're in the Portland area, the next event I'll be working at is on December 2nd at the Whole Foods on 42nd and NE Sandy Blvd. Hope to see you there!

It's Custom Holiday Illustration Time

It's custom holiday illustration time again! It felt like that came up so fast, and though it still seems early, it does take a few weeks, so I wanted to get this posted in case, you, like me, are trying to not panic and do everything last minute this holiday season. Fingers crossed, this year is smooth sailing and stress free. I'm getting ready to screenprint my holiday cards this afternoon!
Last year and the year before, I started doing custom holiday illustrations for families and they've been so much fun, I'd love to continue on this year. I've made an etsy listing for this with all the details, be sure to send me your contact email if it's different than your paypal one so I can get in touch to get your source photos you'd like used, and so we can chat about what you'd like in your illustration. New this year, I'm putting in both the paper and digital copies, which means you'll have an A3 size finished illustration as well as the digital copies for you to do with what you please. Most people have turned these into their holiday cards, and I can size things down for the printer for you so you're ready to go.

Feel free to email or message with any questions, let's get this holiday season started out right with some fun!

Eugene Weekly Illustration

a few weeks ago I was lucky enough to work with the Eugene Weekly on the cover of their Sept 21st issue. Still waiting on a copy to photo the real deal, but in the meantime...
The article is about gold mining in the Oregon waterways and how it is destroying the habitats that naturally exist there by essentially dredging up the sea floor.

new things! It's been awhile as I've been out and about enjoying the last bits of Portland summer, hiking mountains, riding bikes, outdoor markets and a lot of walking around in the sunshine. I have a few more new projects to post as soon as I finish photographing them. In the meantime, see my new posts over at Beautiful Decay.

Here's a dinosaur I drew.

It seems a group of dinosaurs is called a herd for herbivores and a pack for carnivores. I was hoping for something more along the lines of a murder of crows or an unkindness of ravens. Tame no?

The Makers Project // Brooklyn NY

Have you seen "The Makers Project"? It's a beautifully curated set of photographs and interviews with makers, movers and shakers in Brooklyn NY. The photography, done by Jennifer Causey, is awe inspiring, and gives me a twinge of longing to be back in Brooklyn for a while.
Above are some of my favorites from the site.

{plant shopping}

Over the weekend I went to see Somewhere which finally made it to Portland, it was beautiful through and through. I also bought a plant! I killed my peppermint plant months ago and it's been looking pretty desolate in here since, hopefully this will liven things up a bit.

Check out the link to the Somewhere site above, it's full of clips, interviews, and photo stills.
