Wrapping Up the Year

As this year closes, I am anxiously awaiting the next. 
I'm excited for new clients, big changes, and (fingers crossed) more money.

A few of the last sketches from 2015.

You better watch out. You'd better not cry. You'd better not pout. I'm telling you why...

Santa Claus is coming to town. 

Sofar Sounds had our last show of the year & I decided to illustrate band, holiday cards.

A lot of exciting news about my collaboration with this group coming in the New Year!

Sofar Sounds - Sofar Summit

The Sofar Sounds November show was also during our Sofar West Coast Summit. 
A few members from Vancouver, Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, and San Diego chapters came to SF for a weekend of strategizing and debauchery and a show.

Above are some of my sketches from the show.

Creative Mornings SF

Creative Mornings aren't new to the world, but they are new to me. 
They are incredibly motivating and a great way to meet other designers in your area.

A month ago, I saw Jennifer Daniel speak.
Everything she said was on pointe with how I feel about the world we live in.
Her speech was great for designers, but even better for everyone else.

A must even more must see:

All of the artists were given passports written by children, at an 826 Valencia Creative Writing workshop. I received a passport from Nika, pictured below, to use as inspiration.

Money raised will go towards 826 Valencia and the show will be up at 
Mission Comics for the next month.
