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.

Emerald City Comic Con 2017

If you happen to be in the Seattle, WA area at the end of the month, join me and my friends at Emerald City Comic Con! It's my first time going, let alone tabling there and I can't express how excited I am. I'll be sharing a table with my crazy talented friend, Genue Revuelta. She made this handy little map so you can find us and our also amazingly talented friends.

Disney Soda Fountain

Another couple of waves of my pins were released at the Disney Soda Fountain in Hollywood. Here are the concept sketches I put together for the projects. Sebastian was one I had a lot of fun with, so it's cool that it got released already!
