Spring is finally peeking its way out of the gray winter and I thought I’d celebrate by releasing a new screenprinted poster celebrating Mount Rainier National Park! In the two years that I’ve lived in the Pacific Northwest, I have only become increasingly awed of the natural beauty of the region and I can’t help but have it slowly creep in and overwhelm my art. Not that I’m complaining or anything! This 18″ x 24″ four-color print is now available for purchase in my webstore if you feel like hanging some spring on your walls!

I am super excited, flattered, and/or losing-sleep-nervous to announce that the good people at WeMake have invited me to participate in their truly inspiring SketchXchange series! I will be covering up every single wall in their headquarters with every scribble, scrapple, and chunk of colored paper that I’ve made in the last few years. As if that wasn’t already enough, there will also be a Q & A / discussion moderated by Portland design celebrity Brett Stenson, so you know I’m guaranteed to say something embarrassing once or twice. This event takes place on Friday, January 5th at 6:00pm, so hurry up and pick up a ticket here, which comes with a complimentary 9″ x 9″ screenprint designed by yours truly!

I am super excited to learn that my recent “Mystic Castle” art print was accepted to Society of Illustrators in the “Uncommissioned Work” category! I clearly remember spending maybe fifteen seconds to scribble the idea in my sketch book while parked at a rest area somewhere in the middle of nowhere between Omaha and Portland, where it then sat for a year and a half before I finally decided to actually finish it. Special thanks to my friends at Industry Print Shop for their amazing print job!
