2017 Solar Eclipse!

Are you excited for the solar eclipse? I know I am AND I'm lucky enough to live at 99% totality! Excite!

 

In honor of the event I made a few graphics and also because I wanted a t-shirt. :)

If you too would like a t-shirt or mug or whatevs, they are available as such things via these handy links:

Does anyone have any exciting plans for eclipse day? I haven't decided yet if I'm going to venture into the mayhem to find totality or just chill at my house with 99% totality.

Indiana Thor

Here is a recent commission for the premise, if Indiana Jones had found Mjölnir and was found worthy of its power. Thus, Indiana Thor!

I started with a few rough concepts to work out the design based upon a bunch of Thor/Jones research.

Once a concept was decided upon, I moved onto a sketch that included changes from the feedback I received. A more Thor outfit was requested while keeping the iconic hat, shoulder bag, and whip of Jones.

Next came inks.

And then a bunch stuff ultimately resulting in the final painting. :)

MerMay Sketch Roundup

Here are all the sketches I did for this year's #MerMay challenge.

Feminist Frequency: Colleen Macklin Portrait

This month's Feminist Frequency newsletter features the amazing Colleen Macklin. A fascinating professor of design and techology and game designer. Her games focus on social awareness such as communication, culture, and the power of failure. Her work is also attributed with being one of the inspirations behind Cards Against Humanity.

Feminist Frequency asked me to illustrate her banner portrait. I was honored to be a part of this project and tickled to learn all about Colleen, and her wonderful work, in the process.

 

You can check out the full interview over at Feminist Frequency. If you like their work, I highly recommend signing up for their newsletter.
