The Big Bang Theory at Gallery Nucleus!

I'm excited to announce that I was invited to participate in a show at the renowned Gallery Nucleus highlighting The Big Bang Theory! I got to show my caricature chops, and got to do fan art! You can find out all about the show here.
I highly recommend anyone in the area to check it out! There are 50 artists showing, and it's a great theme! See if you can find all the stories and in-jokes in mine.

Doctors make Bad Spies: Illustration for Scientific American

Illustration I produced earlier this year for Scientific American. The article was an editorial against using doctors as pseudo-spies in the war on terror. Thanks to art directors Micheal Mrak and Ann Chin!

Recent Work for the RFT

I've had the pleasure of working with Tom Carlson over at the River Front Times on some recent illustrations for their paper. I think St. Louis has one of the best Alt-weeklies around, so getting to illustrate some quirky stories for them is a dream come true.

The first is an illustration for an article on "dining tours" in the city- a fad which is taking the nation by storm.

The second was for a non-scientific study on what kind of music kids today like. PSY won hands down, apparently.

Thanks again to Tom for the fun assignments!
