For a private commission — some art to accompany a husband’s foray into beekeeping.
Latest cover for Amazon’s Day One. This one features Jennifer Blackman’s “You Know Me Better Than That,” a story about a woman reflecting on her high school years, particularly an incident when she was a lifeguard at Luke Wilson’s pool. Sketches below.
Hi friends! I’m trying to turn my weiner dog illustration into a t-shirt over at Threadless. They run everything based off of a voting system, so a lot of people need to give my illustration a score of 5 before they’ll consider selling it. Even if you don’t plan on buying a shirt, I’d really appreciate the support!

Thanks! (and tell you friends)
An illustration for Institutional Investor magazine, for an article weighing basketball as an investment.
In honor of the 100 year anniversary of Franz Ferdinand’s assassination, I’m posting this spread from my book about historical blunders. The archduke’s driver made a wrong turn and brought the royal targets into the crosshairs of Gavrilo Princip. All this happened after a bomb narrowly avoided blowing Franz to smithereens earlier in the day. The archduke was on his way to visit the innocent bystanders injured in the explosive attempt on his life (but maybe he should’ve taken the hint and stayed in the hotel).
Spot for Milwaukee Magazine — an article about how the Milwaukee Police Department’s website makes them look totally badass.
Here’s a cover for this month’s Day One publication. This issue features River Is to Ocean As _____ Is to Heart, by Peter Kispert, a story about a teenage boy spending his summer assisting a beach lifeguard, and wrestling with his sexuality.
A piece for the Los Angeles Times’ Affairs section. The illustration, admittedly, makes little to no sense without the article accompaniment. It’s a woman’s story of meeting her husband, a quirky engineer type who took her on a pretty bad first date. However, in the middle of the date he posed the question: would a cat land feet first on the ceiling if you threw it high enough? The question made her laugh and she realized he was kooky and loveable and they lived happily ever after. While the cat was merely a single detail in this love story, I wanted to draw an upside-down cat…so here we are.
