My plate for the Paso Robles Library Foundation BookPlates! fundraiser has been fired! Here's a look. I'm pretty happy with the way the solid colors came out. It doesn't look like the colors bled, which was a tiny problem with my plate last year. To get your tickets to the event on November 22 and bid on my plate go to their website!

"My tent fell apart on me!" This is August's featured LOL Moment I illustrated for M Magazine. When I went on a camping trip with my running team last year my fiancé showed me how to set up the tent at home and made me practice so this wouldn't happen to me! LOL

This is a painting I did for a Cinderella themed art show at the San Luis Obispo Performing Arts Center. It's called "La Notte di Cenerentola" (The Night of Cinderella). The show was up during their showing of Rossini's La Cenerentola opera...

This is the logo I designed for the Black & Gold Academic Club of San Luis Obispo High School. They are a group of parents, teachers and alumni that support students in all activities, academics and arts. The tiger is their mascot and their colors are, you guessed it, black and gold!

This illo can be seen in this month's M Magazine (in their LOL Moments column). You can probably guess what the story is! Our heroine brags to friends about being able to do a one-handed jump on her bike, everyone comes to watch after school and she totally wipes out into the mud as she tries to wave to everyone while doing her jump!

This is the illo I did for M Magazine's LOL Moments column in their April issue. This month's featured story is this: A girl's bratty little brother recorded her singing Lorde's 'Royals' in the shower and posted it online for all of her classmates to see. She was super embarrassed and had no way to get it taken down until her mom got home from work at the end of the day!

This is what I came up with for TheyDraw&Cook's "1 Ingredient 3 Ways" illustrated recipe contest sponsored by Glad. Originally I was going to draw cucumber recipes but a switch flipped in my brain and it had to be ginger! Chocolatey ginger brownies, soothing ginger tea and ginger-honey butter for your pancakes! For a closer look check out my illustration on TheyDraw&Cook's website...
