I’m working on a live motion/animated music video for Brave Julius, it was shot at the historic Whiteside theatre in Corvallis, OR.

These are before (Jon’s sketches) and after (my contribution) pages from the sketchbook. He has been working with...

Oregon Home magazine
I did some illustrations for Oregon Home magazine for an article that tries to define what the Oregon home style is, it was an interesting challenge. I tried to capture some of the attributes of the Pacific Northwest aesthetic in the illustrations.
