CLAMP Fan Zine

Hi everyone! Above is my piece for the first of two fan Zines I am participating in this month! This one is in celebration of CLAMP, and you can be pre-order the zine here. There are a lot of really lovely illustrators participating in this one with me, and many fellow MICA alumni. Of course, I had to draw my three favorite CLAMP heroines from Magic Knight Rayearth! (We all know I can't resist any opportunity to draw a magical girl, haha). For those who aren't familiar with it, Magic Knight Rayearth is a really amazing story that was one of the many to shape my childhood. I really recommend giving it a watch, because it really is so much more than your stereotypical magical girl story! (Not that I don't love those just as much!)

Coming up next will be a Powerpuff Girls Villains zine! I'm really excited about that one as well. As for who I'm illustrating, I'll let that be a surprise. I also have some more fun children's narrative pieces on the way as well as a few new pattern collections! Keep your eyes peeled for those in the near future.

Best wishes,

Promo materials

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is having a fantastic summer weekend! I can't believe we're already breaching mid-July. Where is the time even going? Anyway, I wanted to share with y'all a promo piece that I recently created. I'm just waiting for the postcards to arrive to send out =). I'm also working on a story and picture book dummy to accompany this piece along with to other stories I am putting together. I look forward to sharing some of that artwork with you as well in the near future!

I don't want to give too much of the story away yet, but I've named the leading character Jenny Li for now, and I'm really excited to see where she goes! Keep an eye out for some more pirate themed work from me in the near future, perhaps some patterns? 

Best wishes,

Summer greetings!

Hi everyone! I have to apologize for neglecting this blog for a while. Shortly after my last post my hard drive crashed and I lost everything! I was pretty crushed about it of course and hit a bit of a slump. Additionally I graduated in May and since have been doing a lot of traveling and moving! But I've finally picked up the pieces of my sadly lost thesis and gained the momentum to keep moving forward! I'm working on some new projects at the moment, but before I proceed with sharing those, I wanted to do this quick post to share just a few more pieces that I completed in the spring before losing my files.

Firstly I was working on a retelling of the Jabberwocky poem set in an India inspired fantasy world.

Additionally, I did a little doodle for a background piece in a good friend's stop motion animation. When I can grab the link to that, I'll be sure to edit it into the post.

And lastly here is a quick sketch that i first made for one of the new projects I'm currently developing =).

I'll be reporting back within the next day or so with some actually current work, but in the mean time, best wishes! And thank you for sticking with me through the lull!
