Work included in 2008

In October 2008, I had an animated piece included in the fabulous online Halloween countdown calendar,! 

Gothtober, a brainchild of artist and illustrator Julianna Parr, counts down the days of October to Halloween by marking each day with an original piece of online art created by a different artist. It's quite fun to go to the site each day in October and find out what's hiding behind that day's virtual door.

My piece opened on Day 21 (and yes, you can still see it now that Day 21 has passed). It's a recording (of yours truly!) singing a traditional Latin American folk song, accompanied by animated versions of my original gouache illustrations. This was my first time animating, so I have an itch to create a second, even better version, but I'm still excited to share Version 1 with you.

Take a look! Go to and click on "21" (low on the page, just to the right of the skeleton mariachi trio).

Marriage Equality T-shirt on Cafe Press

These are a couple of snapshots from my Marriage Equality t-shirt. I designed it for all those who believe it's a basic human right to legally marry the person you love and want to build a life with. 

The shirts come in unisex and women's styles, and there's a blue and white version of the design (no color fills) for the more understated wearer. 

Shirts are available now on Cafe Press. Click here to go to my shop:

Entered "Communication Arts" 2009 Illustration Contest

I entered the Communication Arts 2009 illustration contest this week. Winners have their work featured in the bi-monthly magazine's 2009 Illustration Issue (July/August). The image above is a sample from the illustration I entered, a scene from an imagined production of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream."
