Books!

Over the past year I had the rewarding opportunity to illustrate my first ever books with Disney and Random House! The team at Disney Publishing feels like a big family. Working with them has been amazing. These books have also allowed me to experiment with various styles which I'm grateful for.

Alice: A Matter of Time is a collaboration between myself, Olga Mosqueda, Jeff Thomas, and Rich Tuzon. Sue DiCicco did the layouts for Berry's Sweet Surprise and I did the paints!

You can find these at larger bookstores or on Amazon:

A Madeline animated movie?

I wish for an animated Madeline movie a lot! I grew up with this series and wanted to interpret it as a full-length feature. Here is a bit of what I imagine it to look like. I feel like I'm just beginning to get to the look of it, so it's kind of an ongoing project. I think a large scale Madeline film should feel like a mix of Amélie (whimsical), Coraline (quirky), and Tangled (magical) in mood... with a soundtrack by Yann Tiersen as well as lots of great accordion tunes! Now I just need to go to Paris

"Where's Genevieve?"



And here is my grad wall! If I had more time I would have gone all-out and added vines, streetlamps, and maybe a fake gramophone. But I'm happy with the way it turned out :D

Surfing cats


An illustration inspired by summer weather and my love of cats. I don't know how to surf, but drawing this made me wish I did!

Guess who just started watching Sailor Moon? :)
I can't believe I missed out on this show when I was a kid. I think I would've been crazy about it; even at age 4 I used to draw lots of girls in dresses and jewels.
Here's a quick illustration I did that I had floating around in my head.. I am always indecisive as to whether I prefer flat or painterly style, so I switch it up a lot. I think it doesn't matter as long as I have fun with it!
