...It's been a minute.

Sorry for the haitus, folks.
I've had some illness holding me back at the start of the year.
Back to the regular scheduled programming...

Here are a few graphics I did last year that have finally made it to stores!

Yeti to Party

Tis the season and all that...

These were my last illustrations with Pottery Barn Teen last year. 
The end of an era as they finally hit stores this holiday season.

Happy Holidays!

Party Animal

One month of parties and shows behind me, and another just beginning.
This is my last month in my twenties, so I guess I better make it count?!

It's that time of year, again...
Sketches from the last few months (when I wasn't working).

4 Years Sofar

My local Sofar Sounds had it's 4th Anniversary last week!

I helped commemorate the year with another poster.

Canada, Oh Canada.

Back in July, I crossed a big thing off my bucket list:
Artist Residency.

I spent a week in Picton, Ontario at Sparkbox Studio. 
I went with the expectation that I may not even draw while I was there. Instead I came away with a small body of work, which all centers around the theme of 'drought.' To be honest, I've been in a creative drought myself, and perhaps this gave me the literal space to explore that.

It was really wonderful adventur-ing, relaxing, not needing to excuse myself to go paint, and being really sweaty and hot. (This summer has been HELLA cold in SF). 

I'm currently exploring avenues to share the work either in a small gallery or as a zine.
More on that soon...

Phono Del Sol

Last February, in the midst of a break up, moving apartments, and my first week at a new job I got an offer I couldn't refuse:

'Would you be interested in illustrating the festival poster for Phono del Sol?'

So, amidst the craziness I took on the motto:
'If Beyonce I can do it, I can too.'

And, powered through deadlines.

It is not my favorite poster I've done, but the experience may be. 

The Bay Bridged was a joy to work with! Compensation included VIP tickets! And, it is the first time I've had my artwork in print. It was so cool to see people holding programs or talking about the cover and not knowing who I am. 

....Well, and a day of listening to bands, supported by friends, drinking free beer, in the sun ain't too bad either;)

My Sofar Sounds San Fran-Anniversary

Next week marks a year with Sofar Sounds!

I've enjoyed new artistic opportunities, new friends, and lots of new music, since starting my involvement with the San Francisco crew.  A handful of sketches from just (some) of the bands I've seen during the last few months in living rooms and work spaces, below!
One member of Loco Tranquilo

...And, while this band hasn't performed a Sofar Sounds show. I did check out their residency one night with some friends and drawing supplies:)
