Here are the covers I illustrated for the Marigold series of books by Jean Ferris. I’m really proud of these covers. I love illustrating type!! Much thanks to the wonderful AD of Elizabeth Tardiff!!
Sky Gradient Papers | Mr Printables
Mr Printables is the kind of website I wish was around when I was a kid (also, the internet would have been great, but that’s another thing). I would have been all over this amazing paper, most probably wallpapering my wall with it, drawing butterflies on it, etc. Now I’m grown up, I still have lots of plans for this paper - wrapping presents with it, making swing tags from it, using it to line drawers. Download and be inspired!
Meet Prism, a special part of his unicorn herd!
Here’s my latest cut paper piece which I’ve been showing sneak peaks of on twitter all week! It will be for sale at the Philly Phair Christmas Village on December 14! Prints will also be available at the event, and will be available in my etsy on the 15th! If you’re around, come say hi!
Toothpaste trees! An oldie but a goodie.
As evidenced by past posts (here also) on toothpaste trees, I’ve got lots of boxes of toothpaste. This year I kept it simple. Just an extra fine sharpie and a ruler. A needle helped me poke a tiny hole through which to thread string. Pretty simple, pretty neat.
Paper Dahlia | Lia Griffith
I just bought a book I’d been eyeing for a while on how to make paper flowers. Though I’m in love with all the different designs, it can be quite hard to follow some of the directions (and get some of the supplies!). Not so with Lia’s gorgeous paper flowers. Each flower has clear, step by step instructions, plus photos. And all her flowers come with free download patterns (some of them are also designed to be printed straight off with the pattern on there - bonus!). And there are lots of uses for something like this, including popping them on top of your Christmas gifts, or even attaching them to your Christmas tree - how pretty would that look!?

New Editorial for BA’s High Life Mag
(This one is about the world in 2050)
I had the amazing opportunity to work with the company So Awesome on one of their new card sets. I illustrated the Go! set, 13 cards all about moving around in the world. It was so much fun to work on. They are both educational and they look so awesome! You can purchase them here.
