MAKINGOODESIGN celebrates NYC organizations using design for social impact. I had a blast illustrating notebook covers at their 2nd annual MAKINGOODESIGN Award Celebration this past May.

Here are some pics from the event.

One of the few moments I wasn’t hunched over sketchbook covers!

I was so busy I barely took any pictures of the covers I drew but here are the few snaps that I managed to take.

Had a blast live drawing food on notebook covers at the MAKINGOODESIGN event last night! #pizzaforever

make cool shit or look at cool shit?

April 29, 2014

I am the WORST at falling into the internet wormhole of wasting time. Sometimes it feels like I’ll read articles on ANYTHING.

Am I preparing to be a Jeopardy contestant?

No.

Then why am I boning up on national crime stories, buzzfeed listicles, Guardian.uk human interest pieces and literally any other article with a title that captures my attention?

That said, when I caught myself in an internet time-suck loop for the eleventy billionth time I decided to do something about it. After surgically removing my eyes from the screen and prying my atrophied hand off the mouse, I did some laundry, ran some errands and painted this piece.

make cool shit

 

Make cool shit or look at cool shit? It’s easy for me to rationalize the absurd amounts of time I spend reading shit online as self-education but the truth of the matter is that every minute spent on some dumb site is one that I’m not painting, drawing or otherwise creating. To make it abundantly clear, I mounted it to the top of my monitor so that it will loom over me when I think I need to check Facebook again.

Here are a couple of detail shots.

If on my deathbed I regret that I didn’t spend more time online then slap me silly and call me Susan.

edible magazine – drinks issue

December 30, 2013

I recently subscribed to edible magazine and was thrilled when the first one arrived. The color and fonts are perfect but the “drinks issue” graphic  screamed to me to be hand-drawn.

So I drew it.

Looks great!

Remember this sneak peek?

Here’s the full image (sans title)!

I drew this to accompany an article about a friend’s (Rachel Crawford) experience working as a caterer whilst being an undercover vegetarian. This was fun because I had to draw it for 2-color printing for it to be eligible for submission.

We didn’t make it in that issue but who cares, look at my cool calf saint!

I took a couple photos while I was working on the portrait of Rachel Crawford and made this little process gif with them.

You can see that this portrait came a loooong way from the first marks laid down. Here is the final image for comparison.
