New Illustration Deposit

My blogging has not been particularly regular this year, but I did want to share a bunch of new illustrations that I’ve got up in my portfolio.

This first piece, in ink and watercolor, is based on an experience I had shortly after moving to LA when I finished college. I was working at the Getty Museum and made friends with a girl named Kristen. After being in orientation for a couple of weeks together I learned, by way of locking myself out of the apartment I was living in, that we we were not only neighbors but we shared a balcony in our apartment complex. We are still friends to this day even though we haven’t seen each other for a few years.









This series of illustrations went with an article written by a woman who went on several survival camping weekends.




And finally, this little spot editorial illustration was created as a reinterpretation of a recent New York Times OpEd piece called “Does My Virginity Have a Shelf-Life?” I’ve been doing a lot of experimenting with my technique and I’m really pleased with the direction my work is taking. Editorial illustration is such a fun challenge and I hope to be adding more of that to my client work in the months to come.
