Here's another piece of the illustration I designed for the new @santamonicamountainsnps brochure. Keep an eye on my grid to see the whole piece reveal itself!⁣ ⁣ "From Coast to Canyon: A Tour of our National Parks System" opens at the Santa Monica Mountains Visitor Center on March 2.

Raise your hand if you like collecting the visitor brochures at all the National Park sites you visit! 🙋‍♂️⁣ ⁣ Last year I had the great opportunity to create an illustration for the new Santa Monica Mountains Recreation Area visitor brochure. It's a huge honor to have my work on an official @nationalparkservice brochure and I'm excited for everyone to see what's probably the most detailed painting I've ever done.⁣ ⁣ I'm going to reveal pieces of it over the next couple weeks because it's frankly too detailed to be seen on a small screen. If you keep an eye on my grid you'll see the whole illustration begin to appear!⁣ ⁣ And to celebrate the release my artwork will be on display at the visitor center for the month of March. The show will include the illustration for the brochure along with all the National Park screenprints I've made up to this point. ⁣ ⁣ On March 2nd I'll be there in the afternoon to sign books as well. More details soon!

I've been seeing friends who worked on Coraline post about its release 10 years ago today. That's crazy! It was my first animation job and I'm really thankful for the path it led me on and the friends I made along the way.⁣ ⁣ Here are a few pieces of concept art I painted for the film that went on to become the designs for those sets. ⁣ ⁣ Has anyone watched it recently? How does it hold up? ⁣

I'm planning on getting back into doing architectural illustrations this year. Here's a house on Figueroa I drive by almost every day.

Happy New Year! I want to take a moment and thank everyone for their support over the last year. The National Parks book came out and it was a huge labor of love for all involved and a personal creative milestone for me as well. I never thought I would be able to illustrate a book so densely packed with art and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. ⁣ ⁣ In 2019 I'm going to finish another children's book and be super prolific with printmaking. I'm excited to take it to the next level! ⁣ ⁣ Cheers and here's to a creatively exciting new year!
