Fanart of Simon from The Mortal Instruments Trilogy by Cassandra Clare
This has a great story behind it: I was at New England Webcomics Weekend last weekend, and I casually mentioned to my friend Jeff Barone that I liked The Mortal Instruments Series,and he casually mentioned that Cassandra Clare lives in the area and he totally knows her and hey look, what a coincidence, here’s the lovely husband of her friend. It turned out that she might even come if she recovers from a rockin’ signing in Toronto that lasted until midnight.
In case she would be able to stop by the next day I asked if I could draw some fan art because I’d been meaning to draw Simon for aaaages and it would be awesome to give it to her in person. The next day, she was still too tired from her trip, but her friend stopped by and picked it up. She said she liked it, and at the behest of her and Cassandra, I colored it!
24 layers of interacting light in CS3 later, here it is! Simon with non-canon bow!

Mock Columbus Zoo Icon for PR Class Project
This summer I took Communications 634: Creative Message Design. In this PR class, and we were assigned to design a mock full-media PR campaign for The Columbus Zoo (rated the no. 1 zoo in the US this year! Eat it, San Diego;). We had a great time designing mailing strategies and a social media campaign.
I had an especially good time designing the logo and writing one of the commericals entitled “In Your Backyard.” I storyboarded it and the one by my great teammate Emily for the Polar Bear Exhibit.
Here are the boards for “In Your Backyard”.
Happy Birthday, girl!
And CONGRATS ON GRADUATION!
Hey! Meet Raife! I made him up today. He has an army of ghosts that keep him company and safe.
He still needs a hand.
I don’t know what world he’s part of …. “Nightbear Chronicles” comes to mind, but frankly, that sounds a little redonk. Meh.
