TOGETHER at Light Grey Art Lab


Materializing Spirits

I did this piece for Light Grey Art Lab's TOGETHER Residency Exhibition inspired by my artist residency in Norway.

We were Team Huldra. A Huldra is a tree spirit similar to a dryad. I love similar folklore. Humans have many common memories...

The framed print is for sale here.

Chateau Orquevaux Artist Residency

Chateau Orquevaux

In all the Kickstarter madness, I neglected to post that I have been offered an artist residency at Chateau Orquevaux. It will be 4 weeks probably in summer 2022 since it seems like travel is unlikely sooner.

I love France and cannot wait to spend a month creating work there. A couple friends have also applied so I hope we can coordinate!

I spent a month in France in 2018 and look forward to being there again. It is so inspiring!

More as it develops!

Cincinnati Cabinet of Curiosities


My first Kickstarter ever is live!!! I even made a flaming skull graphic to celebrate!
This is such a cool book; I CANNOT wait to share it! You are supporting some wonderful Cincinnati artists if you back us and will learn about some really interesting and scary Cincinnati lore!
Artists include:
Thomas O Miller (front cover), Eamon Hill (Back Cover), Tim Fuller, Rodney Fyke, Jay Kalagayan, Kat Klowkow (editor), Dylan Speeg, Brandon Wagner, and Christina Wald (protect manager)!

See the video here:

I did the story on Cincinnati's urban legend about Satan's Hollow! It has everything! Ghosts, flaming skulls, shadow men, and a dash of satanic panic!

Here is an article about our comic in the Cincinnati Enquirer:
