How Design and the New York Times

This morning I got an email saying that my portfolio website has been selected as one of How's Top Ten Websites of November! Check it out here and also take a look at the other artists while you're there!

Also, here's a thumbnail for my latest Op/Ed piece for the NY Times that is being published tomorrow: 



Check it out if you get the paper! It's a great look at how immigrant innovators shaped some of the biggest companies in the US!

101 Florals - Raflessia

Llew Mejia over at 101 Florals was very kind to allow me to do a pattern for them! I have loved the raflessia since I was a kid, reading about them in books and thinking about how strange it must be for the largest flower in the world (the largest unbranched inflorescence, specifically speaking) to have its carrion smell and feeding on insects. 

Yeah, I was that kid (like you don't know it already!). 

Anyhow, here are a couple views of it. And you can also check it out here at the 101 Florals blog - amazing work that they're doing over there!



I'll also be posting better pictures of Hamlet ASAP! So excited to show them to you all!

Hamlet Preview!

Oh my gosh you guys! My first copies of Hamlet just arrived in the mail today!!! This is my absolute favorite of the four books that I've done so far!

Box newly opened: 


One of the more complicated spots in the books (fennel, rue, daisies, pansies, violets, and columbine, of course!): 


I'll post something else as soon as I get Much Ado!

The New York Times Op/Ed

Oh, almost forgot to update with this too. Last week I got the call to do an illustration for an Op/Ed piece that compares Frederick Douglass' own experience with voter fraud to today and provides a modest proposal for suppressing minority voting. It's very exciting to work on such a current piece, and the quick turnaround and fast-paced brainstorming was a ton of fun!
