Here are a few original works, posted in reverse chronological order. Click the thumbnails for the full image.
Updated version of a “throwie” I’d made in 2017 on traditional media (Photoshop, 2021)
Quatrefoil pattern made in Illustrator, 2017
Plate for a collograph (Copy paper on cardboard with Charbonnel ink, June 2017)
I didn’t plan out the image at all; I just wanted to try the fancy French ink and was inspired by the negative shapes of punch-outs in the papers others had left in the studio. (Collograph print on Arches paper, 2017)
Hanging in this year’s Student Art Show (Linocut print, 2017)
Unfortunately right now I can’t move the little brown cabinet on the right so it’s cramping The Alchemist’s style a little bit.
A close-up with less glare.
Given Dürer’s use of prints to spread his work, I think he would’ve been into social media had he lived in this century. Also his “Self-Portrait at 26” always gave me the impression he thought he was all that and a bag of chips. (Acrylic on canvas, 2015)
Theater poster for a youth production of “Harry’s Hotter at Twilight,” a parody play. (Digital, June 2014)
Inspired by La Calavera Catrina and Dutch vanitas paintings. Exhibited at Wayne State University’s 2015 Art Education & Art Therapy show. (Acrylic on canvas, 2014)
Originally the blue pass of a silkscreen print I did in 2004. (Digital, 2014)
Poster for a friend’s poetry reading. I did not create the images, only the layout. (Made with Pages; 2014)
La Calavera Catrina takes a selfie in this modern vanitas. The font is “A Lolita Scorned” by Jovana Gaspar. (October 2013, Digital)
Sketch for an “ezara,” or a decorated plate. I must have been reading Sartre at the time. (March 2011)
The finished decorated plate. Made in Koishiwara. (Glaze on ceramic plate, March 2011)
A panel from a comic I had submitted to Tokyopop’s Rising Stars of Manga contest. My brother wrote the story, I did everything else. (Pen on paper with digital tones, around 2006.)
Pen & Ink on Bristol Board (2004)
Exhibited at the 2003 Wayne State University Undergraduate Art Show. (Acrylic on Bristol Board, 2003)
Exhibited at the 2001 Scholastic Art Awards (Charcoal on charcoal paper, 2001)
