1. I thought I would show you the original finished illustration for the San Francisco Chronicle, sans text.

  2. I drew Mario Batali as a golden statue for the September issue of GQ. You have to check it out in print — David Chang’s article about ordering tasting menus rules, and the page is so fun.

    I love going to Batali’s restaurant Otto Enoteca, and I’m dying to try Del Posto. This is most certainly in honor of his Croc-wearing self and delicious food.

    Many thanks to Chelsea Cardinal for the art direction and this crazy awesome assignment. I like smiling while I draw :)


    I worked with Erick Wong at the San Francisco Chronicle last week on this illustration for the cover of the Food + Home section of this past Sundays edition. This illustration is enormous, like 17” tall.

    Each of the veggie illustrations appeared throughout the section, accompanying descriptions of how to plant and grow each variety. I had a lot of fun with this one, not just because I love food and drawing, but also because I bought, referenced, and ate all of these very vegetables. 

    My many thanks to Erick Wong for the assignment, and to Shannon May  for the recommendation! Y’all are my heroes.

    My piece for the Fangamer <3 Attract Mode show happening on August 30th at 1923 Events in Seattle, WA. I recently got Pikmin 3 through that Mario Kart 8 promotional deal and I really loved it. Highly enjoyable and addictive little game. Also, Pikmin are adorable. 

    If you happen to be at PAX Prime or live/are in Seattle that day, should stop by the gallery show :D it will be fun.


    I don’t usually reblog anything on tumblr, but…

    you guys. YOU GUYS.


    Pikmin is the best game I’ve had the joy to play on the Wii U.

  5. This is another illustration from the current issue of Nature Conservancy Magazine. It accompanied an article about Woodburne Forest, a wildlife preserve in Pennsylvania that hosts hikes and likewise experiences, like this dragonfly survey. 

  6. I thought I would share the original illustration done for the On the Wing article in the current issue of Nature Conservancy Magazine.

  7. For the new issue of Nature Conservancy, I made some illustrations, including this full page introductory illustration for an article about the conservation efforts made in California for the development of a habitat for migratory birds that fly along the Pacific Flyway.

    I loved getting to collaborate with my art director, Katie Lesser on this assignment. It was incredibly fun, going back and forth, figuring out how to design the illustration in tandem with the type. I’m thrilled to finally share it, and I’ll share another illustration I did for the issue soon!

    Thank you, Katie!

  8. Here’s an old portrait I forgot to post! It’s of Tim Regan, done for ProSales

  9. Look at the Flip Side: Summer Alternatives to Flip-Flops

    I was invited to work with Dennis Blanco at Bonobos again this past week on some illustrations of some good footwear alternatives to the not-so-sartorially-acceptable flip-flop.

    I didn’t mind wearing flip-flops when i did so, but I’m happy that I’ve moved on to some strappy sandals (they me feel like the wing-footed Hermes) and espadrilles, which are just super cute.

    I could never pull off boat shoes though.

    Thanks again to Dennis Blanco, for inviting me to work on these illustrations for Equateur!

  12. Contributors Portraits for POLITICO

    The creative director at POLITICO, Janet Michaud, contacted me earlier in the year to do some portraits of the contributors for the newly launched POLITICO Magazine. I’ve worked with her since on portraits for each issue since, and it’s been awesome. I worked with Janet Michaud during her time at The Washington Post, and her art direction is incredible.
