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.
New illustration for the Chicago Reader’s Fiction Issue 2014, out this week!
The issue features a juried selection of new stories by Chicago authors. I was asked to create an illustration for Heather Michael’s story, “Diáspora.” The story deals with a poor, fragmented family held captive in a cycle of fear and ransom by the mob.
You can read the full story here, or pick up a copy of the issue. Other illustrations include lovely submissions by Hye Jin Chung, Lilli Carré, Johnny Sampson, and others.
A quick update on my artist residency at the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative…
I wanted to a series of relief woodcuts based around a story I wrote some time ago. When I finish, there will be ten woodcut prints and a story page. Overall, it has been a slow, learning process, but it is exciting to see it start coming together.
