The Bedtime Book

Hello everyone, I am finally writing a new post after a long time.  A couple weeks ago I finished my 7th book for Carousel Pediatrics entitled, "The Bedtime Book".  Here are the images of the book, I hope you enjoy:)


The Opposites Book

Ok so I'll just get right to it, here's the artwork for "The Opposites Book".  This book posed a real challenge for me and took a lot of planning.  Almost every illustration is filled with detail and it was difficult to try and make each character their own person and in their own environment (although some environments are similar to keep some consistences).  All in all I'm very pleased with the turnout of this one, hope you enjoy as well!

Much love


Long Time Comin'

Well this is quite the long overdue blog post if I do say so.  I have to apologize for that, I moved into a new apartment in downtown Buffalo back in mid December and have been without internet until today.  Yes, I am once again a functioning member of society.  During my long absence from my blog I completed my 6th book for Carousel Pediatrics titled, "The Opposites Book".  Look for a post following this one containing the finished artwork.  It has been a crazy couple of months though, between moving into my new place, the holidays, and facing some family hardships.  But on the bright side of things I love my new apartment and the freedom as well as creative environment it gives me.  There are a couple sketches I'd like to share.  One I did in the Laundromat and another for a poster promoting my good friend Phil Machemer's comedy show.  Enjoy :)

Much Love



"The Grow Up Book"

Whats up ya'll? So before I start moving into my new apartment in Buffalo and things are extremely hectic, I have to make this post.  I recently completed my 5th childrens for Carousel Pediatrics titled "The Grow Up Book", and I am really happy with the finished product.  Compared to previous books I've done, this one has somewhat of a style change.  I took more of a graphic approach and allowed it to be easily legible by the kids.  I hope you guys like it as much as I do :)

Much Love,



"Grow Up Book" sketches

What's up guys, first off let me say I hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving.  It's always good to spend quality time with your family, especially during busy times like these.  Let me also give my regards to those who like myself had to work the dreaded Black Friday.  Aside from that, it's been awhile since I've posted anything so I figured I'd give you guys something interesting to check out.  So as we speak I am currently in the process of completing my 5th childrens book for Carousel Pediatrics.  As of right now it is unofficially titled "The Grow Up Book", which is designed to inform kids about what it takes to live a healthy lifestyle.  I really like the concept and message of this book, so I thought I'd share some process sketches.  Now I'm not going to spoil the final product, so here are a few sketches which you will see within the finished book.  Hope you enjoy :)

Much Love,
