Here’s a chubby, little, blissful bumblebee wallowing in a bed of fresh pollen. I wanted the bee to look like a fat cat getting its head scratched. My dad used to say that every living thing just wants its head scratched. One day a bumblebee landed in front of him while he was gardening and […]
Here’s a pair of cute cacti enjoying their time to bloom in the desert. When I was growing up, my dad always had at least one cute little cactus as a houseplant. They were usually round and hairy and had funny names like ‘Herbert’ or ‘Cousin It.’ It wasn’t until we moved to Texas, where […]
I had an opportunity to delve into the wonky world of isometric illustration recently when a client approached me to design an illustrated instruction manual.

I had the wonderful opportunity to take things in a very different direction for this month’s Utah Adventure Journal. The article is about the apparent contrast between the author’s inner sci-fi nerd (guilty pleasures!) and his love for athletic outdoor activities like skiing, mountain biking, kayaking, etc. One of the things he narrates in the […]
Recent editorial illustration for Ascent Backcountry Snow Journal. This was for an article on the types of weather patterns that make for bad or even dangerous skiing. In it, the author fantasizes about founding a government agency that would spare no expense in making sure that winter mountains are brought to optimum skiing potential.
Recent illustration for Utah Adventure Journal. The article is about how most people who go to Utah for a job only plan on staying there for a few years before moving on. However, the ones who are into skiing usually end up staying for all the awesome skiing Utah has to offer.
