Lettuce, flamingos, and deadlifts

Happy First of May, <<First Name>>!

My son has been asking a lot of questions about human impact on climate change and what we can do to be kinder to our planet. We are trying to make better choices when it comes to plastics, so, I was happy to be asked by my pal Bennett of Modular Agency to create drawings for an educational animation about recycling for food brand, OrganicGirl.

We helped OrganicGirl communicate that their clamshell packages are made from 100% recycled plastic water bottles (yay!). Here are some of my drawings used in the video:

TIP: If you and your kids are looking to make some small changes—with big impact—to reduce your use of plastics this summer, order your ice cream in a cone instead of a cup/spoon... less waste, more yum.

Coming May 21: Pinky Got Out!

I illustrated a picture book (written by Michael Portis) about flamingo shenanigans at the zoo. In honor, I bought this jazzy sequined flamingo... which, for me, is a legit business expense, btw.  Pre-order Pinky now from your local indie bookstore or Amazon!

Just for fun

If you watch my Instagram Stories, you'll know I've been weightlifting for the past year (I know, I know. Shocking, isn't it?!) I recently "graduated" from my incredible coach and made this drawing as a reminder of everything she taught me.

Let’s collaborate

I'm available soon to take on new work like commercial illustration, private commissions, and logo or website design. I'm also booking school visits for the 2019-2020 school year. Tell your friends!  Find me at

Talk to you soon!
