Good Things column
Because of all the bad news lately, FLOW asked me to illustrate some good news - 4 good things in my life. I chose libraries, sleeping with the windows open, strawberry picking and volunteering with my daughter at the Humane Society.
The Women's Rights pin features the American Sign Language (ASL) sign for "I Love You" from the Deaf Culture. It shows support for Women's Rights and celebrates the Women's March 1.21.17. It directly supports Planned Parenthood and ACLU. To date, we've raised over $84,000 for PP and ACLU!
I collaborated with Red Fuse Advertising to create a super fun tote for Hill's Pets. At veterinary conferences, attendees (veterinarians, vet techs, office managers, students, etc.) pick up lots of “stuff” from various booths, along with any notepads or tablets/laptops they want to have with them during sessions. Many exhibitors provide bags, but most of them are the poly-weave type and heavily branded. We wanted to provide a more premium bag, both in material and design, that was also exclusive to Hill’s.
A promo for my rep, Scott Hull, who asked "What's your favorite 4th of July cookout food?"
For Live Happy Magazine:
Gratitude practices makes you happier.
In our house, we always end the day by sharing our rose (best part of our day), thorn (the worst) and bud (something we're looking forward to). It usually sparks meaningful conversation and helps our little family of three feel close even though our days are often spent apart.

Inspired by Elizabeth Gilbert's "Big Magic", I teamed with SALT Project to create this summertime “crankie” from an excerpt of the book.
A crankie is a nineteenth-century storytelling art form where an illustrated scroll is wound onto two spools and hand-cranked while a story is being told or sung. We thought this moving panorama would be a fun and sweet way to illustrate the big magic of creativity in the midst of fear!
Illustrations for a sweet little video about six ways to survive (and enjoy) the holidays! I partnered with my friends at SALT Project to spread good cheer as we went into the most wonderful, and sometimes stressful, time of the year. Hope it makes you smile!!
