Broadly is VICE Media's content channel focused on women and their experiences. I've worked with VICE on a continuing basis as a feature editorial illustrator, creating over 35 illustrations from concept through execution for a wide variety of wacky articles.
Note: Some material featured here is offensive or NSFW, and nothing reflects my personal opinions.
This includes 85+ albums released since 1957, and the goal is to create each image (in chronological order) in a unique artistic style.
Style Rituals is the home of Colleen McCann, an acclaimed fashion stylist and Shamanic Energy Medicine Practitioner offering a variety of spiritual healing services for the millennial lady in need. The "stylist turned shaman" is the resident healing authority for Goop, has been featured in Fast Company, Vogue and Refinery29, and works with high end clients nationwide.
I worked with Style Rituals to develop a distinctly elegant and beautiful visual identity that stood out in a space overwhelmed with patchouli and rainbows. Colleen and I continue to collaborate over the years to add to her arsenal of visual imagery as her company and brand needs grow.
Utilizing illustration, I built a brand image of effervescence and spirituality while maintaining a high level of customized luxury, achieved by leaning into line work reminiscent of fashion sketch illustration, and watercolor pops of the Style Rituals seven color palette (representative of the seven chakras in the body) to add magic and intrigue.

I've had the pleasure to create editorial illustrations for a wide range of content platforms and magazines. Here's a sampling of some of my favorites.
Love, Daddy is a children's book about a father's love for his daughter, written by Mike Ang, and illustrated by me.
It was a blast to start from scratch and develop the characters, style and color palette. We used pandas to tell the story, as their black and white fur provided a bold visual statement, and they could be representative of any and all father/daughter pairs. After experimenting with everything from collage to markers to gouache, I honed in on a unique signature style featuring delicate but strong pen lines, along with expressive ink washes and patterned backgrounds. By keeping the line illustrations relatively flat, the pandas really popped against the textured ink environments they lived in. Included are select images that illustrate the creative process.

xoJane is a online magazine where "women go to be their unabashed selves." xoJane has been named one of Forbes' "Top 10 Lifestyle Websites for Women," and garners over 2 million unique visitors every month.
I pitched an illustration project to xoJane that capitalized on two cultural phenomena - the enormous rise in popularity of coloring books for adults (particularly as a stress-releaser and meditative exercise), and the three ring circus that has been the buildup to the 2016 presidential election. I thought it would be hilarious and highly relevant to create a series of coloring book pages featuring the remaining presidential candidates - Clinton, Trump, Sanders and Cruz (as of Spring 2016). By creating a downloadable PDF for Americans to print out and enjoy via xoJane's enormous reach, my hope was to give people everywhere a creative outlet to color out their political frustrations and create a social media opportunity for endlessly unique UGC of people's colored pages.

Motto, a company that connects illustrators with celebrities and influencers, hooked me up with the LadyGang to create a completely unique digital Sticker pack in time for Apple iOS 10's launch of Stickers.
From Bitmoji to Kimoji, the success of digital stickers has spurred a massive race to create, and this was an awesome opportunity to mix my style with The LadyGang's inside jokes. From concept through production, we created 20 stickers, which are available to download here!
