Last weekend, I attended a local SCBWI event (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) in Richmond, Va. Among the three excellent panelists was YA author, and 2015 Edgar Award Nominee, Lamar Giles. Lamar did a super-fun Mad-Lib-style exercise with us called Story Starters, where he and the audience create a unique opening line by committee. Once […]
Announcing the all-new, official Kid Hercules web site! Featuring daily drawings from my 365 challenge, a brief synopsis of my upcoming series, and a few action-packed illustrations of the world’s strongest kid in full, blazing color! Check out all the awesomeness at www.kidhercules.com.
Here’s just a few samples of my ongoing 365 challenge for a character I’m developing called Kid Hercules. I actually completed the challenge back in April, but have a pretty big backlog of images to upload. This has been such a great project and something that has helped improve my work in ways […]
San Francisco’s Common Ground magazine is leading up to its 40th anniversary with an issue devoted to the importance of humor.

Here’s a little something for Halloween. I actually did this for HappyReading.org, but I thought it was a good fit for a Happy Halloween image.
I got to illustrate the cover for the Graphic Artists Guild’s upcoming newsletter, which I’m pretty excited about. The theme I was given was how we are connected via digital media. My idea for the image is a riff on former Alaska Senator Ted Steven’s infamous declaration that the internet is “a series of tubes.” […]
Here’s a quick sketch for this week’s Illustration Friday. It’s actually part of a project I’m working on, but I thought it fit this week’s theme well enough. UPDATE: Here’s the finished piece:
