I was having some feelings and had some free time. This is not much more than an experimentation in illustration. I’m getting used to drawing with a tablet and loving it for the ease. The barrier to entry is fairly low with only a decent knowledge of Photoshop and a $50 tablet required (here’s mine).Read More
Surely he has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
smitten by God, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his wounds we are healed.
This piece was commissioned by Downtown Cornerstone Church. It is common to worship God through music and the preached word but they desire to teach the congregation how to worship through other mediums, including the visual arts. I so appreciate that. This is part of that initiative.Read More
I’ve opened a shop that I’m hosting myself! Here’s what I’d like to say about it. I think Christmas should be about more than what it appears to be these days and I think you feel the same. I was recently awakened to the fact that I often don’t bother to feed myself well just out of laziness when I have the opportunity to do so (clarification: I do eat!). Yet so many people in this city don’t have that “luxury”. I see so many of them every day around the city. But food isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity. So I’d like to donate half of the proceeds from my shop this Christmas to help feed the homeless in Seattle. It’s not much but it’s something. If you’ve got no other incentive, will you help me do that? I’ll be donating through UGM (Seattle Union Gospel Mission) which you can do directly if you’d rather.Read More
I’ve been painting, experimenting with abstract shapes and patterns. I want to visually communicate emotions, music, moments, or the mundane. The translation of these things onto paper fascinates me and the act of painting itself is cathartic, slowing down time in a way my soul needs these days.
So I am excited to share them with you. The originals can be purchased on Etsy (update: purchase right here in the shop) while reproductions and new manifestations (pillows, apparel, phone cases, etc.) can be purchased on Society6. I’d be honored if you want to make them yours.
