Happy Halloween! I wanted to wait another day, but the kids over here in Baltimore are trick or treating a day early and I couldn’t hold in my excitement. 

I submitted this piece to the Seance show over at MICA that opens tonight! If you’d like to see it in person, it’s on the 3rd Floor of the Fox Building. I added in some close-ups so you can see what might be only visible in the print!

EDIT: Fixed the first image! It was fuzzy!

✦✰✠⚔ KICKSTARTER LINK⚔✠✰✦

It’s been a long time coming, but my first illustrated book was just published today by 47 North! It’s Scott Meyer’s Off to Be the Wizard and one of the first Kindle in Motion animated e-books available on Amazon.

You can check it out here with other interior animation samples!

Huge thanks to my AD Tyler Freidenrich, as well my family, friends, and mentors who saw me through my first book. Love you all!

I’ve been out of town for most of May and June since graduation. I spent a good portion of that time in Puerto Rico! Let’s just say I’m feeling a bit nostalgic and I needed to put it into a doodle while warming up. <3 

She’s got a story of her own I’ll get to one of these days. You’ll probably get some fun sketch pages about her in the next few weeks when I need a break on my next big project.

As an exceptionally belated birthday present to my ex-roomie Amanda Ho, I speed painted one of my favorite moments from Willow (the best fantasy movie pretty much ever in the history of man)! Also Sorsha is a badass.
—————-
On another note, I am getting ready to start selling Volume One of Battle Vixens and Warlords online! Expect to see a post about that soon. <3

Here’s an image from the back cover of Battle Vixens and Warlords - I couldn’t help but make a mini-Battle Vixen of myself for the “about” section. I especially couldn’t resist putting a Team Four Star Dragon Ball, a Puppycat charm, and a Sailor Moon Star Seed on my quiver!!! 

Speaking of Puppycat, my talking Puppycat plush I pre-ordered totally shipped earlier this week. Expect some Bee and Puppycat fan art once it arrives! I love the living crap out of that show.

The MFA Illustration Practice students at MICA put together a mini-zine for MOCCA! Here’s my limited color palette submission. I was already in the process of designing a mermaid to be turned into a decal and fired onto a sushi set, so this was a pretty easy solution to kill two birds with one stone! 
—-
As for the sushi set - it’s actually a sushi and ramen dish set I’ll be whipping out as a personal project full of mermaids, mermen, underwater warriors, sunken ships, and divers. I’ll be sure to show you guys more of that stuff soon!

What’s this? You want to know what I’ve been doing? Working on my MFA thesis animation pitch, Zodiac Riders!

I’ll be posting the entirety of the concept designs soon, but I figure I might get you all started with the Gemini Twins Pollux and Castor. Yes, Pollux is a girl. But I love how similar the two of them are. And their matching moles. 

Plus their moto-bike that splits down the center. Because they work as a team, even when separate.

The show will be up for about two and a half weeks at the Riggs Gallery in MICA’s Graduate Studio Center. Expect more posts soon!

At MICA, we’ve been asked to take part in The Sketchbook Project! While we end up switching sketchbooks every week, we were in charge of choosing what topic we’d like to do a cover and first two-page spread for. I chose “Atlas of..”, but shortened it to Atlas.

Threw one of my characters I’ve been building a world for in my head on the bottom and decided to do a little sea-faring girl with a cosmic egg on the top. I mean, why not? Who says worlds can’t be birthed like giant chicken eggs? It makes total sense to me.

At MICA, we’ve been asked to compile all of our concepts, process, assignments, and personal work from the past academic year into a single volume. While a lot of work, it’s been a lot of fun because the design and title of the book are entirely up to us. After settling on Hinterland (an area lying beyond what is visible or known) as the title, I drew copious amounts of inspiration from some 1960s vintage book covers last night, then made it happen!

I took this opportunity to fill the frame with some of my favorite things: funky mushrooms, fluffy alpacas, greyhounds with robo-legs, and topless deer ladies doing the pug hop.

Hey guys! I thought I’d announce via a pair of teaser images the zine I’m going to be selling at MOCCA fest in NYC this April and at Spectrum Live! in May: Battle Vixens and Warlords! It’s a parody on inventory screens and character sheets from RPGs and table top games, filled with characters I’ve always wanted to put to paper.
