Austin Bat Cave offers writing programs that empower K-12 youth in Austin, Texas to find their voices and tell their stories. For this project, I teamed up with Lewis Carnegie to adapt their crisp design into a mobile-friendly website. I developed the Austin Bat Cave website on WordPress with a shopping cart powered by WooCommerce. The website features […]
Metamorphoses contains fourteen short stories as well as Karen Russell’s lesson plan and writing prompts for her generative workshop on Metamorphoses that she taught for Austin Bat Cave. I drew the cover illustration in Procreate and designed the entire book from cover to cover. It was a pleasure collaborating with Karen Russell and Ali Haider, and […]
My illustration for the cover of the September 2018 issue of World Literature Today. The visual pairs with the special section in this issue titled “Music & Lit.”
Another lovely collaboration with Austin-area musicians. Austin Music Hall of Fame musician Jon Dee Graham painted the cover art for this album and I completed the typography, typesetting, and design. You can listen to a preview track for the album on Americana Highways.
I Walked In Them Shoes is Americana singer-songwriter Adam Carroll’s eighth solo album release, coming out just a few years after the tribute album Highway Prayer: A Tribute to Adam Carroll was released with covers by James McMurtry, Hayes Carll, Slaid Cleaves, Terri Hendrix, Walt Wilkins, and a dozen other artists.

The Jackman Eye Austin logo draws some lighthearted inspiration from the cacti and desert climate in Marfa.
Jackman Eye is a full-service optometry clinic in the heart of central Austin. The practice’s website needed an aesthetic refresh to incorporate our recent branding design and to showcase the practice’s freshly renovated optical shop. We transitioned their website to a new platform that improves the user experience for both first-time visitors seeking to learn […]
The Imagine Music & Arts logo pairs a soft, fluidity of motion with kid-oriented typography to illustrate this music and arts school in Norman, Oklahoma. The abstract bird works to represent both audio and visual artistry.
I designed this propaganda-style digital illustration to pair with the short story “Health for All” by Cuban science-fiction author Yoss.

Yoss’s short story can be read in the November 2018 issue of World Literature Today.
