Richland Library | Artist-in-Residence

Happy 2018 Friends!

I'm kicking off 2018 with a bit of celebration, starting next week I'll be the latest Artist-in-Residence at Richland Library

Richland Library isn't just a library in our city, it's a community center, a place for making and learning, a place where you can talk to a social worker, participate in story time and take an unbelievable amount of *FREE* creative classes! Really, this library, less than 2 miles from my house, is in the top five in the nation. It's amazing. 

I'll be holding workshops in their space for the next four months. I'll have a little studio space on the second floor (come say hi!) and I will have office hours on T/Th from 3:00-5:00 each week. 

My work is currently up in their amazing gallery/entrance and I'm having a talk about my work on February 1st. 

I collaborated with the Library back in December on these fun Holiday cards.

Thanks for following along with my work, I'm so excited for 2018! I hope each of you a year happiness, good vibes, and energy! 

New Work | Supercall.com + Stat News

I've had the pleasure of working on some meaningful and really fun work in the past few weeks.

I just started working with STAT NEWS on their End Notes Blog. Read the moving article related this image here.

And I got to draw the Loch Ness Monster and yummy cocktails for an article on Scotch for Supercall.com, so fun!

Giant Thank You Card

I recently made a giant Thank You card for my friends at Downtown Church. Here is a video of my process. Lots of erasing and sweat were involved in this process! :) 

Refresh Charleston

 

Hi friends! 
I'm so excited to share that I'll be speaking at Refresh Charleston this month at Blue Ion on June 20th. If you are a human, who has emotions and loves drawn pictures, this talk is for you! I'll share my creative process and hopefully give you a few reasons to laugh. All the details for the event are here.

Hope to see you there - Cheers!
