I’m honored to have had my work featured by a few different sites in recent months.

Last week: The Bold Italic published a series of my photographs taken inside San Francisco’s Mission High School.


Last month: The University of California at Davis (my Alma mater) published a profile about me and the mural I created for the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History.


November 2013: A few illustrations were selected by Lustik, a curator of art, and design (and all other things creative and interesting). Thank you Béatrice Lucas—and Petits petits tresors, The Pixelated Nerd and everyone else inspired to reblog. Just like Pinterest (and all you crazy, beautiful pinners), Tumblr is a rabbit hole of delight!


August 2013: Find an interview with me on Found Folios, detailing the process of art-making for a story published by Kiplinger’s.


Finally, I’ve been really pleased to see the nice reception Parenthood Listography has received since it was published in April (Chronicle Books). You can find the book (in great company) on Cool Mom Picks, Green Genes, The Weekly Review, Pop Sugar, Apartment Therapy and the SFMOMA Museum Store


Thank you!

Parenthood Listography was published this month by Chronicle Books. Last week I had the opportunity to write about my experience and inspiration for their blog (which features 15 of 69 full color illustrations):

Of course I was excited to illustrate Parenthood Listography. Published April 2013, the journal is 8th in the esteemed Listography series, each authored by Lisa Nola and published by Chronicle Books.

As an illustrator, I was eager to work through a large quantity of illustrations—69! Lisa’s text suggested very unique situations and things; determining how to represent each visually while maintaining consistency throughout the book was a welcome challenge. Each drawing informed the next: from subject and composition to line quality and color. Ultimately, we all wanted drawings that were whimsical and fun, at times poignant. After all, many of the best parenting moments are exactly that. Continue Reading…


A list of things you destroyed: Your dolls.

My first illustrated book (with 69 full-color drawings). Authored by Lisa Nola (the very funny creator of the Listography series) and published by Chronicle Books (so you know it has to be good). Hang tight… it’s available Spring 2013.

From the Publisher:

Listography for parents! Now fans of the smash-hit journal series (more than a quarter of a million copies sold!) can keep a unique memory book of their child and their parenting experiences over the years. With more than 60 thought-provoking list topics ranging from the classic to the lovably idiosyncratic (including your child’s first words, the best and most challenging parts of parenting, and your child’s biggest tantrums), this illustrated journal is a celebration of parenthood and childhood that will serve as a lovely keepsake for the family.
