The Unicorn of Water

Cohort of the Elements

By

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.

This artwork is also available for sale on a variety of housewares in my Redbubble store.

Sketchbook: Cicada Comics

By

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.

Trillia’s Quest – A Mermaid Adventure in Three Scenes

By

Trillia is a mermaid character I’ve been developing for younger readers. She is questing for ancient artifacts in order to save her village and her family. These three images were part of an art challenge to tell a simple, self contained story about discovering the “silver lining” to one’s troubles in just three scenes.

Sketchbook: Trillia’s Quest storyboards

By

Over the course of 77 separate panels, Trillia the mermaid goes on a quest to save her village from a dangerous blight.

This story was created during the Journey Through June Instagram challenge, to create an entire new story out of thumbnail images in one month using prompts based on the classic “Hero’s Journey” structure. The sketches were deliberately kept rough to meet the hectic pace of daily posting, and were accompanied by only brief captions.

Sketchbook: Mermaids of #Mermay

By

An assortment of non-traditional mermaid characters that were created for an Instagram challenge, each based on multiple random prompts drawn from an idea generator. Particularly difficult to include were concepts like “hoop skirt” and “rifle” but I found a way!
