I’m excited to announce the launch of my Tea Spirit 2015 Calendar kickstarter!
The calendar will include 12 all new tea spirit illustrations. In addition, I’m collaborating with Song Tea to create packaging for an 8 tea collection featuring my art. If you’re interested, please check it out!
Mantis and moth stickers! I’ll be selling these at SMASH this year. :) I couldn’t resist making cute lil buggies.
A characterization and shape study based on my first three chickens: Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles
I recently was commissioned by Cody Pearce to create concepts for an animation pitch called Xeno-Control - here are three of the main characters.
Rex: At 109 years old, Rex has spent most of his life scraping by on a meager salary, so he values any money that comes his way. He fought in the Vennar War, where he encountered many wild and dangerous aliens - this gave him the idea to start Xeno-Control.
Trixie: Trixie attends college where she studies xenobiology. She is an alien activist, advocating that all aliens be treated as equals. She is one of the youngest people to get her pilot’s license. Outspoken and incredibly sarcastic, she’s almost always smiling no matter how bad things get.
Ozgood: Ozgood’s true age is unknown - with all of his physical and mental improvements he considers himself post-human. He made his fortune from weapons manufacturing during the Vennar War.
I’ll be posting some environments from the project next week!

Here’s a thing I’ve had around in my head for a while!
Okay, so I’m pretty sure that by now everyone at least is aware of Steampunk, with it’s completely awesome Victorian sci-fi aesthetic. But what I want to see is Solarpunk – a plausible near-future sci-fi genre, which I like to imagine as based on updated Art Nouveau, Victorian, and Edwardian aesthetics, combined with a green and renewable energy movement to create a world in which children grow up being taught about building electronic tech as well as food gardening and other skills, and people have come back around to appreciating artisans and craftspeople, from stonemasons and smithies, to dress makers and jewelers, and everyone in between. A balance of sustainable energy-powered tech, environmental cities, and wicked cool aesthetics.
A lot of people seem to share a vision of futuristic tech and architecture that looks a lot like an ipod – smooth and geometrical and white. Which imo is a little boring and sterile, which is why I picked out an Art Nouveau aesthetic for this.
With energy costs at a low, I like to imagine people being more inclined to focus their expendable income on the arts!
Aesthetically my vision of solarpunk is very similar to steampunk, but with electronic technology, and an Art Nouveau veneer.
So here are some buzz words~
Tailors and dressmakers!
Stained glass window solar panels!!!
Education in tech and food growing!
Less corporate capitalism, and more small businesses!
Solar rooftops and roadways!
Communal greenhouses on top of apartments!
Electric cars with old-fashioned looks!
No-cars-allowed walkways lined with independent shops!
Renewable energy-powered Art Nouveau-styled tech life!
Can you imagine how pretty it would be to have stained glass windows everywhere that are actually solar panels? The tech is already headed in that direction! Or how about wide-brim hats, or parasols that are topped with discreet solar panel tech incorporated into the design, with ports you can stick your phone charger in to?
