  • Wine

    Inspired by Alphonse Mucha. He’s one of my favourite artists, and his style is iconic. I wanted to pay tribute (copy) that type of Art Nouveau alcohol ad. This one is Wine. I like wine. But I also like graffiti. So I combined my love for all of these things and created this back in…


  • Burning Inside

    This is one of my favourite signs in ASL. It’s probably not healthy how often I’m burning inside. But it’s probably at least 70% of what’s keeping me going as an artist at this point. Just to satisfy the inner burning.


  • Shakespeare

    Shakespeare. In this one, I wanted to play with merging graffiti and heraldry. I think the hardest part about this one for me was keeping it to just a single shade of yellow. But in the end, I was pretty pleased with how it plays with the black and white. Definitely will be exploring this…


  • Breath

    Breath

    Some Brandon Sanderson fan art paired with ASL. It’s possibly Vivenna from Warbreaker? I’m not entirely sure.


  • An Octopus for a Friend

    Made this bad boy for a good friend. It’s their favourite colours and animal. Looking forward to doing this kind of thing more often, I think.


  • Things I’ve Done and How I’ve Won in 2021

    2020 was a dumpster fire shit show. I think most of us agree. We rounded out December and went into January looking forward to the new year. 2021 was supposed to be the year that made up for 2020 which was supposed to make up for 2019, which was supposed to make up for 2018,…


  • Runners’ High

    I used to run every day as part of my job in the military. And every month, I was tested on how fast I could run two miles. So every morning, I went for a jog. I hated it. I was slow. It was hard. Often it was cold outside. Cold air burned my nose.…


  • The Children of an Idle Brain

    Written for the NYC Midnight short story challenge. I signed up thinking “as long as I don’t get romance, I’ll be fine.” Well, my story had to include an instructor, and the generic theme of absentminded, and of course had to be in the romance genre. And this is the resulting story. Please enjoy the…


  • Update! 2-2-21

    It certainly looks like I haven’t been up to much if you judge by my recent Patreon posts. But there’s quite a bit in the works!First, I started a new job at Oxford University Press at the end of November. I work in publishing now! It’s crazy! I’m drinking from a fire hose and about…


  • Writing Warm-up: Obligation

    Some things just have to be done. Whether you want to do them or not, you just have to. Like brushing your teeth after a delicious meal. Your mouth’s going to taste like mint and the savoury pickled red peppers are going to be a distant memory. But if you don’t brush, your teeth fall…
