The Unicorn of Water

Cohort of the Elements


These pieces illustrate the covers of a hypothetical book series. It would be a fantasy epic set in a world where the magic system is based around the traditional four elements but hinges on the mysterious fifth element “aether” that connects them all… or destroys them all.

Sketchbook: Cicada Comics


In 2021 the Brood X Periodic Cicadas emerged in large numbers all over the mid-Atlantic. I was hearing a lot of misconceptions from friends and acquaintances, so based on new research and my experiences from 17 years ago – the last time they emerged in these numbers – I went back to my science communication days to sketch out these informational cartoons for my social media feeds.

The panels were optimized for Instagram.

Sketchbook: Kitsune


This mischievous kitsune, or fox spirit, is on its way to have some harmless fun tricking humans in a nearby village. It probably can’t make too much trouble, since it’s only powerful enough to still have one tail so far.

Cat Comics


Selected pages from two cat-themed comics, written and illustrated by Stephanie Smith.

Ox and Pig Together


Private commissions – the animals represent a husband and wife’s signs on the Chinese Zodiac.

Original watercolors are 20×30 inches


Insect Guardians: Braconid Wasp


Braconid Wasps, or Parasitic Wasps, are tiny insects that don’t harm humans, but assist gardeners by destroying crop-damaging hornworm caterpillars. They lay their eggs on the back of the caterpillar, and when their babies hatch they eat the caterpillar from the inside out. Gross!
