Illustration for Facets

Illustration for the upcoming annual Boo! Bash celebration at Facets.

Boo! Bash is a multi-layered event for families and children, featuring costume competitions, carnival festivities, film screenings, and so on. It takes place in October.

I really enjoyed working on something so playful and for such an incredible place!

Facets is a Chicago-based media arts organization, providing education, conservation, and screenings of independent and international films.

Illustration for ‘The Monster Gasped, OMG!’

Excited to have my illustration in the just published, “The Monster Gasped, OMG!”, an anthology of children’s authored stories about monsters. I got to illustrate the story “Lonely Boy”, by Beyrali Santiago (age 11), about a time-traveling vampire warewolf boy >:)

Published by 826CHI, an amazing Chicago-based non-profit center helping students with writing and tutoring (an initiative founded by author Dave Eggers).

The Chicago Tribune also published an article about the project.

Lurie Garden artwork

New illustrations for Lurie Garden’s Annual Plant Sale event.

I re-created some of the plants that will be at the sale, using a mix of hand drawing, texture and collage elements. Had a lot of fun with this.

Lurie Garden is a non-profit urban sustainable gardening project located in Millennium Park. It is an incredibly peaceful and beautiful space in the heart of downtown Chicago.
