Back to the blog

So graduation happened! I'm back at home (moving to New York soon). Thankfully i've been keeping busy working on different projects. This was one of them. Last month SooJin Buzelli called me and asked me to do the cover for the july issue of PLANSPONSOR. Well needless to say I was pretty excited about it. I looked through the last couple covers and came across the work of Chris Silas Neal, Jillian Tamaki, Shout, Yuko Shimizu, Chris Buzelli and a few others. Yeahhhhh, pretty awesome but also a very hard act to follow. I had just moved back home and my brain was kind of scattered but here's what I came up with. I want to thank SooJin for taking a chance on me. Thanks so much SooJin!
