drew this a while ago, still thinking about it
~i am all over baltimore city this week~ news update:
last week I finished my internship and this week my first cover illustration is out in the world, along with a collab with Alex for B magazine. (I did the background trees and the surrounding environment, Alex did all of the drawing and the central area) Huge thanks for Alex for helping me out immensely this summer and getting me in touch with some excellent people, thanks to the college issue AD Audrey Gatewood (and Baynard Woods), and thanks to the entire city paper crew for being great people to have my first real illo job with.
Included is the really rough color sketch for city paper & what both covers turned out like in real life. This was basically the best possible way to finish off my summer. ( ﾟ‿ゝﾟ)
So my favorite billboard in the city was taken down a few months ago (it looked like this), but it’s been replaced by the baltimore LED art billboard, which isn’t a bad fate at all. The official unveiling happens during Artscape, & I was invited to contribute a lil image for the countdown. if you’re in town around 8:45 the first night of artscape, then hopefully you and I can check this drawing out at ≈ 30ft.
an old illustration from the occupation of Crimea. I drew a house that wasn’t on fire. (this is rare.)
A book jacket for Mowgli’s Brothers. this one was an absolute joy because of obvious plant-related reasons. bagheera is probably one of my favorite characters, ever.
here is an in-class illustration from earlier this year, for an article about a goat head being sent to Wrigley field. baseball curses are real, y’all.
A flower for Mary by Kirsty Hambrick
big thanks to Jordan Sondler & Rebecca Bradley for inviting me to participate in this project along with so many great ladies, to commemorate the young women still missing.

I’m interning with Alex Fine this summer, which is an awesome time that hopefully I can show you more of soon. until then, here’s a drawing of some 90s mom jeans I adopted a few weeks ago. this was also a pretty good test of Kyle T Webster’s new dry media brushes; the drybrush linework ones are killer.
