This is a collection I created for the Not On Paper show I participated in showcased at The Hokin Gallery in Chicago. I wanted to create a collection of items a child could bring along with them to a sleepover! This project gave me the opportunity to bring my love for animals, research, and illustration together and create tangible items someone could enjoy, and love forever!
This passion project has evolved and more can be found here: www.pipnplop.com

A personal project about breaking the boundaries of what illustration can be. I chose the RedEye because I not only enjoy getting my news from the publication, but it is also something that is ALWAYS in my everyday life. I wanted to transform the RedEye Box and implement my style in a three dimensional way.
The project took off and got picked up by the RedEye itself, took over their social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook), and then led to a feature online written by Shelbie Bostedt.
Materials used: Old Iron Man T-shirt (sorry Tony Stark), Recycled Cardboard, Duct Tape, Fluffy Goodness, White Acrylic Paint, Recycled Plastic, Old Christmas Socks & Wax Paper.
An editorial illustration inspired by the article A Trip to Taiwan's Magic Noodle Mountain for MUNCHIES, a site by Vice about food.
