I took a quick jaunt up to Bandera this Morning and heading to class now for the afternoon. Feeling grateful to have so many beautiful hikes in such close proximity. #pnw #gooutside

Yes, a cake date is a thing and I had a lovely one this afternoon with two delightful friends who are soon tying the knot. 😊❤️🎂

I’m not an athlete. I’m a manatee with an ‘active lifestyle’. Other than built in flotation devices (I.e. my body) and therefore a certain resilience to drowning, one of the many rewards being active offers is that no matter where you go, you can find your way. Tonight in Iowa I ran my miles and met all kinds of critters and had an incredibly rewarding afternoon despite not knowing the place or the people.

Working on finding the the right illustration style for my ghost stories. Ink has such fun potential!

My goal was to fill and frost all these little cakes and not eat any of them in the process. Fail!!

S’mores cake! Chocolate cake, graham cracker creme pat, lots of toasty Italian meringue and a Smokey bourbon syrup for that campfire flavor 😂 🍰 #baking #smores #cakes

I’ve started working on some illustrated ghost stories. Not all the panels will be this dense (or my hand would fall off) but dang is it fun to pack this much visual information in! Though inking is going to be an insane challenge....

Sunday baking diversion, pecan and chocolate torte in a short crust pastry shell. #homebaking #chocolatepeacan

The tulip magnolias are making it into all of my work this week 😂

I feel... almost done with this project... the box design might be slightly too stark 🤔 or is it good? The end zone is always challenging, when is it time to let go? #playingcards #illustration #indiedeck #designproject

Getting some art education from my tattoo mentor @daniellovre feeling excited and grateful

Over the years I’ve had opportunity to design a few tattoos for some very close friends and I’ve had folks get tattoos of my illustration work. And now I’ve embarked on a new adventure, designing artwork specifically for the body. This piece was today’s effort, a meditation on change and letting go and of course inspired by the tulip magnolias blooming everywhere. I can imagine this wrapped around a bicep with the skull on the shoulder or lovingly following the curve of a rib cage. My mentor in this effort, the amazing @daniellovre will have to give me feedback on the viability of the design but I’m looking forward to doing more of this work. DM me if you have a design concept you’d like to see brought to life 😊
