June 21st, 2021 Sometimes it takes an animal’s perspective to help us understand our own lives; the way that humans tend to overcomplicate things often gets in the way of seeing them clearly. This has become very apparent as I finish up hundreds of pages of squirrel research. I have fun facts for days (IContinue reading “2%”

Freefallin’

May 30th, 2021 Sharing a warm-up sketch this morning for two reasons: 1. Brushfire is still very much my main project that I’m working on, despite yesterday’s surprise news that I’m releasing a sequel to Flip this summer. 2.

Squirrel Life

April 30th, 2020 I’ve been asked about my obsession with squirrels, and I have to say: it’s everything. The aesthetic. The personality. The community.

Every day, somewhere, a squirrel decides to cross aContinue reading “Squirrel Life”
