I based it on my favorite Zelda game, Ocarina of Time, which I just recently beat (and yes, it came out in 1998, don't hate!). The little fairy in the corner next to Link is Navi, a character that is supposed to act as your helper throughout the game but who is usually just very irritating.

- The spirit in which to begin to love;
- How to care for yourself in order to be irresistible to women;
- Where to find the ideal woman for you;
- How to approach her; and
- What to say and do so that you may earn and keep her affection forever.
Along the way, you will learn everything you need to know about your duties and pleasures as a lover."
Boys falling in love?! Yes please! Obviously, a book like this was completely up my alley and I was super excited to work on it. Below are a few of my favorite drawings from the book (I'll post all of them on my website very soon). The book is published by The New Haven Review.

I watched Whip It last week, and the next day saw an awesome roller derby illustration by Kali Ciesemier and I HAD to start drawing some derby girls. I think I might go see the Brooklyn Bombshells skate against the Manhattan Mayhem in September!

This is an assignment from earlier this year. It was super open - "What I Did Over Winter Break." I thought of the most memorable thing that I did, which was to see the movie Hausu by Nobuhiko Obayashi. It is truly the weirdest, best movie I have ever seen!

My school is doing a project with the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Company, which is an amazing organization which I suggest you check out!: www.superherosupplies.com/
Basically, there is a store in Brooklyn (right by my old apartment, actually) that sells exclusively superhero (and villain) supplies - anti-matter, masks, capes, invisibility spray, you name it - anything any self-respecting superhero or villain would need. The store is quite small, but behind a secret shelf there is 826NYC, a nonprofit organization that helps young students with their writing.
For this project each of us was assigned a superhero or supervillain that was created by one of the students at 826NYC.
The character I received was FREAK SHOW, a super villain. Freak Show terrorizes the universe! He can shapeshift and get the powers of whatever he turns into, and if he can't, he stabs that thing and eats it. He loves to murder and steal. His parents died when he was a baby. His biggest nemesis is Superman. His lair is at the top of Mt. Everest.
I had a lot of fun with this project. I decided to depict Freak Show getting ready for a night out on the town in his secret lair, or, you know, bedroom. I always love drawing someone in their room or special place because you can tell so much about a character or person by what they keep in their private quarters. I really hope I get to meet the kid that created Freak Show at some point and shake his/her hand!

My school is participating in a bestiary show for the Bologna Children's Book Fair and some students were asked to pick a beast (real, mythical, something you imagined) and illustrate it. I was reading up on actual old medieval bestiaries, which had a description of a fox that I included with the image. I chose to make the fox into a sort of bad teenager, because teenage boys are the devil.
I'm going to be in Bologna representing my school at the fair from the 22nd to the 27th. I'm super excited!

This is my piece - Road Runner and Watermelon Head from Sugartown (my comic I'm working on!). It's three colors and they did an awesome job printing it - I'm so pleased!
Here is their website - buy things from them!: UNDERBELLY
I just started my last semester at Parsons and I'm super excited to start working on my first Senior Portfolio assignment, which is to create an image based on an experience we had over winter break. I think I'm either going to do something about how I saw Fantastic Mr. Fox four (FOUR) times, or something about the AMAZING Japanese horror film called House I saw last week. So excited!
I just realized that this print matches the banner above my blog exactly. Can you tell what my favorite color is?
