Jazz Concert (and poster!)

February 19, 2016

The annual Sweet Sound of Jazz concert is fast approaching, and I once again designed the poster for the event. Come on February 24 to the Grant High School Old Gym for a fabulous fund-raising event and some great music. 

I wanted to share the poster here beause it turned out especially good and i am quite proud of it. I made the instrument shapes 'from scratch' illustrating them by hand in illustrator. Overall a nice balance of colors and a good composition.

24 Hour Comics!

October 12, 2016

I finished my SECOND 24 Hour Comic event on October 1st and it is now posted here in its entirety!

In 24 Teachers, I recount every teacher I've had my entire school career- from kindergarten until 10th grade. Learn every curious quirk, personality trait, and poignant memory from ten years in the imperfect PPS School System. Everything is my real experience.

While my teachers' likenesses are represented here, I have changed their names for privacy's sake.

I am also posting my FIRST 24 Hour Comic, The Life of Leaf. This comic follows the adventures of Leaf, a precocious squirrel who sets out to follow his dreams, find his place, and encounter love.
