a red winter (2015)

In January 2015 I submitted my first sketchbook to the The Sketchbook Project . Following a chosen theme, Winter, I created a wordless version of Little Red Riding Hood, which I called A Red Winter.

You can see the digitized sketchook here:   https://www.sketchbookproject.com/library/16913

This book was created with various materials such as Prisma Color Pencils, Prisma Color Markers, acrylic paint, glue and permanent marker.

While this book is not available for purchase, I hope to create a longer version soon, which I will self-publish and have available for purchase. Stay tuned!

 

a curious alphabet for curious people

This self-published alphabet book is based on a previous book I illustrated while at the Art Institute of Boston. Heavily influenced by Edward Gorey and his darker humor, I established my own curious/dark humor, teaching life lessons to kids and adults, such as: Bears do not want to be your friend, stay away from wells.  People are inherently strange, with each of us having our own odd quirks. This book zones in on differences and curious behaviors, with rhyming and colorful/quirky illustrations.
