Jemaine Clement

I completed the second celebrity portrait in my sketchbook style portrait series. Since the first sketch was of Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords, it was only appropriate to draw Jemaine Clement, the 2nd in the duo.

I'm really excited about this style. I think it suits my personality - I get to do some tedious detail work, but then get spontaneous and messy with the painting. Plus I dig how it looks. I recently completed an illustration for Louisville Magazine in this style, and I have another coming down the pipes. Hooray for a new style!

Happy Oaks Day!

The Big Move

I recently uprooted my life in Los Angeles and moved across the country to my hometown of Louisville, KY. My Biggest Fan, Jason, uprooted his life too, and joined me on this adventure.

I'm lucky enough to be doing freelance graphic design with my previous employer, Eastdil Secured, as my #1 client. Jason is going back to school to become a physical therapist. It's a huge transition for both of us, but we're both excited to see where the future takes us!

Below is a little collage snapshot of our adventure. Now that I'm working from home in an actual studio space, I hope to be creating more work, which means I'll be posting more often.
