  3. Created this piece for my maps class. The assignment was to pick a chapter from the book  “On the Map” and then depict an aspect of its contents. I chose the chapter on Treasure Island and treasure maps in general. There was a passage that stuck with me, describing how most treasure seekers don’t find any treasure on their expeditions. Rather, their experiences and comradery are what make the voyage truly valuable, if they live to see the journey’s end. Created this piece for my maps class.

  12. MOCCA FEST!

    sarahseeandersen:

    HI GUYS!  So here’s the update I promised about MoCCA, a cartooning/comic festival held in New York.  The festival takes place this weekend (April 5th and 6th) in Manhattan.   I’ll be there on Sunday from 2-6 at table F10 selling zines and postcards with my classmates!  You can still buy stuff on Saturday but I won’t be there in person.
    All information including the full address for MoCCA can be found here.

    Hey everyone! I’ll be at the MoCCA table selling prints with Sarah and Leonard this Sunday! Come hang out and say hello :)

  13. Hey everyone! I guess it’s that time again - inprnt is doing another 20% off sale until the end of this weekend! I’ve added a couple of new prints today for the offer. Click here to visit my inprnt gallery where you can find many others. If you’ve ever been interested in getting a print, now would be a great time! Thanks everyone and happy spring!

  14. Here is my submission for Daniel Krall’s new show, Technotwonic! (the counter show to last semester’s black and white Seance show)

    Also, I recently passed 7000 followers and I wanted to thank you all for your tremendous support! I seriously can’t express how much you all mean to me, so I’ll let the butterflies in this drawing be my metaphor.
