I had the great pleasure to work for the amazing 826 Valencia creating illustrations for their latest Quarterly 22, which features wacky and wise writing by young authors. Thank you Maria and Amy for this beautiful project!

Also thank you so much to everyone that came to the book launch last Oct 17th during Litquake !


Here are some of the illustrations inspired by these beautiful writings:

Solidarity with Nepal





If you are in Nola come this 5/22 to Down the Hatch after 5pm to contribute to the Earthquake Relief Fund in Nepal.

The money collected from the evening from the restaurant’s tab, open donations, and a raffle will be donated to the non-profit, volunteer-based organization, the Society of Ex-Budhanilkantha Students – North America (SEBS-NA). SEBS-NA is a Nepalese formed section 501(c)(3) charity organization that has already raised more than $200,000 toward their 2015 Earthquake Relief Fund. Photos and more information on where and how these relief funds are being distributed to the victims of the earthquakes in Nepal can be found on https://www.facebook.com/sebsna. More general information on SEBS-NA is available at http://www.sebsonline.org/info/sebsna.aspx.


Thank you!
