Hercules 20th Anniversary

Last month, the still ungodly funny movie, Hercules, turned 20. This movie is one of my favorites out of the Disney studio and it's not just because I share a name with the heroine. To celebrate, Mickeys of Glendale at Walt Disney Imagineering employed us to make a pin for the occasion and I had the pleasure of designing it.

Father's Day 2017 with Inside Out

Another month, another holiday that saw a release of one of my first pin designs. This pin with Riley and her dad was designed right alongside the Finding Dory pin and I saw it released last month for the holiday. This was a cute one to do, especially since I don't see these two very often!

Hard Rock Cafe Tokyo Uyeno Eki

Another one of my pins for Hard Rock Cafe showed up in the wild! This one was a unique project. Pandas are a common motif in pins for Japan, but this one is unique for the other animal in the design. Apparently, a nearby zoo has a shoebill stork that is well loved by everyone that visits it. I'm hoping that I did that permanent grump face some justice.

Hard Rock Cafe Munich

Most of my clientele are various art departments at Disney. Occasionally, I get work from another big pin seller, Hard Rock Cafe. I saw that one of my designs surfaced at a Cafe all the way in Germany. They asked for a girl wearing one of their famed rock and roll memorabilia. Here's a concept I put together that eventually became the pin.

That's A Lot of Hair

I came across another one of my pins released recently. This time, I did some work for the Mickey's of Glendale shop at Walt Disney Imagineering. I was tasked with drawing characters inside these really cute shield locket hinge pin things they gave me. Below is my first sketch of probably my favorite out of the bunch, Merida.

Mother's Day 2017 With Finding Dory

In honor of this past Mother's Day, The Disney Parks released a limited edition pin that I designed for them. I think it was only available at the parks and such, but it was so cool to finally see this piece in person! Below are some peeks at how this project got from start to finish.

Midsummer Scream Announcement


I am happy to officially announce that I'll be tabling at Midsummer Scream this summer in Long Beach, CA! I'll be there to promote and sell artwork (and hopefully other goodies) for Spirit Rappings. If you're like me and start celebrating Halloween on July 5th, this convention's for you! Check out the other amazing vendors I'll be surrounded by here.

Disney Soda Fountain

Discovered another few pins of mine that were released by Disney Studio Store Hollywood . It was such a treat (pun definitely intended) to draw this batch, especially. I don't think Belle was part of their usual lineup, but released as some sort of special gift.

Disney Soda Fountain

Just learned today that another couple of my designs for the Disney Studio Store were released recently. It was fun drawing characters we don't usually see, like the Church Mice and Jenny.

Disney Soda Fountain

Here's some of the latest pins I designed that were recently released at the Disney Soda Fountain in Hollywood. Mickey is always deceivingly challenging to draw, but Crackle was probably my favorite out of this bunch.
