This includes 85+ albums released since 1957, with the goal of reimagining each album in a unique artistic style or medium.
Multi-platinum singer/songwriter Andy Grammer came to me in anticipation of his third album release, The Good Parts. I worked with his team to create subtly animated illustrations to pair with each single as it went live across Youtube and social media. I created a custom look and feel to create an ethereal, dreamlike and surreal world as a visual manifestation of Andy's emotional, immersive and relatable music.
The project was an absolute conceptual blast - it was such a fun challenge to listen to each song and bring it to life visually, and the album is currently at 57 on the Billboard Top 100, so go give it a listen!
The LadyGang is a "celebrity driven" podcast that garners over 100k downloads per week. Led by E! news host Keltie Knight, fashion designer Jac Vanek and actress Becca Tobin, The LadyGang takes a hilarious and honest look at what life is really like in Hollywood.
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!
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.

Deep Focus brought me in to concept & illustrate key frames for animated transitions as part of a brand culture video.
Working within a minimal style and restrained color palette, I created fun and creative illustrations to tell the DF brand story in a succinct but memorable way that played off of their slightly wacky way of thinking and doing.

Your Daddy Loves You 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.
