Peopled Places

I had the pleasure of creating three illustrations for a gallery show called Peopled Places. The show was created by Helikon Gallery and features 9 artists (including myself) in a show that “reflects on the ways in which we interact with, struggle against, and find inspiration in the places around us, both real and imagined.”

The show is open from August 2nd - September 2nd. There’s some really great work in the show! Check it out! Peopled Places

Father's Day
Father's Day

Dedicated to my dad. I grew up looking at his vibrant paintings of trailer homes and houses. To this day I still think his art impacted my own aesthetic. 
I remember practicing baseball with him during the summer time. I never really enjoyed baseball, but I always think fondly on those days when the cicadas were calling and I could smell the leather mitt on my hand and the grass baking in the sun.
