Here is the cover image and process for the latest issue of @indymonthly about the possibly of Marijuana legalization in Indiana. The cover was DD @todd_urban_im_art_dept s idea and I thought it was gorgeous. The second image is his concept sketch, I hope you don’t mind me sharing this. Honored to grace the cover of such a great magazine. Thanks all #editorial #editorialillustration #illustration #marijuana #art
@indymonthly Has weed issues, well just one issue and it’s on newsstands now. I did 4 images for this issue including the cover which is an honor since they don’t often use illustrations on the cover. Each one is distinct in its own way. I’ll post about each one in depth but here they are together. Thanks @indymonthly and thanks @todd_urban_im_art_dept I love working with you. #editorialillustration #illustration #art #marijuana
This piece was one from late last year from @barrons that I forgot to post about. The article was about not panicking when the stock market dips. The deadline was super fast. I think I had an hour to do concepts and the final was due the next day. Thank you AD @rdeclan71 it’s always exciting working with you. I am pretty sure the maze was inspired by a piece by @millborough , thank you for the inspiration, I love your work. #editorialillustration #editorial #art #illustration #barrons #bearmarket #dontpanic

Here is a cover I just did for Indianapolis monthly about the weed situation in Indiana Repost @indymonthly ・・・ Our March 2019 issue hits newsstands and mailboxes this weekend. Here’s what you can expect in this edition: Into the Weeds • As the states surrounding us legalize marijuana, Indiana is becoming an island of prohibition. But it wasn't always that way. Will cannabis crop up here again? The Breadwinners • Our favorite sandwiches in town, from a prime rib-stuffed roll to an old-school hoagie to a Big Easy-style muffuletta. Any way you slice it, these are heroes. Old Soul • A designer's modern farmhouse honors the look of rural life with a combination of timeless architecture and trendy style. Not a subscriber? It would be a lot cooler if you were. Follow the link in the bio to sign up today. (Art by @curtmerlo)
This is a piece I did in this weeks @nationmag about the current Administration wanting to cut the TPS program that protected refugees form war torn countries. Some of them have been here 20+ years and may have to go back to their homelands without their American Children. Great read. Thank you AD Robert Best. #editorialillustration #art #illustration
I think it was Bill Gates who said it’s amazing how little you can get done in a day and how much you can accomplish in a year. Probably butchered that one but that is how I feel right now. Not to mention I completely changed my style this year. For an artist that is like starting over. Thanks for sticking with me instagram. Love you all!

I am finally getting around to posting this piece I did for @washingtonpostmag a little while ago.

Finally finished this sweetness. 48’ Ford matte olive drab. It’s hard to do this when your fingers are sausages and you can practically inhale the pieces. Fun though... what am I doing with my life.
