I did this portrait of my good friend Evan as Henry the V for his album that has been years in the making, and was released today. One of the first people I ever played music with, and I still look back on those days fondly. Congrats @henry.the.v

Chicagoland people! This is gonna be rad. Featuring work from @thebirdmachine @tinyaviary @drawashleydraw and myself. Prints for sale, a grill fired up for food, drinks, and general friendship time. #skokie

Work in progress.

Are you guys ready for popsicle weather or what? Gonna have a whole print of fake ice creams soon. #popsicle

Messing with some type for @neatlyknotted things.

I find making thumbnail images is super helpful, and I think it has possibly become the most important part of my process. I usually like the thumbnails more than my final piece, but who cares!? Thinking is a preexisting condition. 💀

A longtime internet friend got this tattoo of my flower drawing, and it looks so damn good. I always feel warm and fuzzy when someone likes my work enough to get it stuck on them. 🙏🏼😎🥀

A lunchtime sketch of abandoned stuff.

"The Lookout," a new 18" x 24" screen print is in the shop now (link in bio). Limited edition of 36.

I reworked this thing that I over-rendered the first time. I'll eventually start on the rest of the damn image when I'm not blowing my nose every five seconds because of tree pollen. Shoot me into space.

Something about death, or impermanence. I dunno.

Here's a typeface I made for a record we're putting out on @dismalniche . I'm calling it "Tuma reverse italics." Also, I am tired and it's been raining for way too many days.
