This was a challenging and rewarding project with local Dote Magazine. The topic of grief can be hard to tackle, and for me it hit very close to home as I dealt with a death of a family member this past summer. It ended up being something of a healing experience in the end, and working with Kate Klassen at Dote was wonderful. Fall/Winter Issue 2017.
Modern Dog Magazine
Working with Modern Dog mag is always a treat! On the top is a recent piece about dogs learning from each other from the spring 2017 issue, and an earlier piece from 2014 about bonding with your dog. Any opportunity to draw big silly dogs is my favourite.
Education Canada Magazine
For the December issue, with one of my favourite AD's Dave Donald.
Spirituality and Health Magazine
For Spirituality & Health magazine, September 2016 issue. This was so fun to work on, since I got to base the illustration off the Editor in Chief's golden retriever, Nikki. Dogs are the best.
Swerve Magazine (Calgary Herald)
A few projects done with Swerve magazine from 2014 to this year. Most recently, I worked on a personal map of my summer plans and the cover illustration which included aspects of the five other illustrated maps that were featured in the issue. I also did a small illustration about the Annual Beard and Mustache Contest of Alberta (cool, right?) and another map of my favourite part of Calgary, which was formatted for Swerve's app to be interactive.
Brain, Child Magazine
Three projects over the last couple years with Brain, Child magazine. Most recently in May 2016, which was a special opportunity for me as my illustration accompanied a personal essay written by Creative Director Marcelle Soviero.
Some work from This magazine, which always offers challenging topics that are really enjoyable to work on! The first illustration accompanied a short story about cheating, and the second one about challenges LGBTQ individuals face within Canada.
Back in 2014, I had the huge pleasure of working with Janine Vangool of UPPERCASE as a creative in resident. I got to work in the gorgeous UPPERCASE studio on a self directed project called Teen-Aged, and was published in the colour issue that summer for an article called Red Alerts.
This was an intense school project from my time at Sheridan College, and while the work is a few years old it still holds a place in my heart. I had a full semester to obsess and bury myself in Nabakov's story, and pull out visuals that relayed the dark and fascinating elements within. These are some of my favourite illustrations from this project.
