Rolling out a new look for my icon on various forms of social media! This little self portrait was made for my new business cards (finished just in time for SDCC) using a mix of paper cutting and digital painting. Hope these turn out once I get them back from the printer!

Elizabeth (Bioshock Infinite) - hand cut paper silhouette
Last entry (for now) from my Bioshock Infinite set. One of my favorite aspects of this game was the character progression, especially Elizabeth’s.
Available on Etsy.

Young Elizabeth (Bioshock Infinite)
To continue on my Bioshock Infinite kick, I decided to make a couple different versions of Elizabeth, including one based on her design from the beginning of the game. It was actually her character design (created by the awesome Claire Hummel) that got me interested in playing the game in the first place!
I’ll be posting my other version of Elizabeth in the next few days.
Available on Etsy.
The same coin. A different perspective.
Robert and Rosalind Lutece (Bioshock Infinite)
I’m not a huge fan of first person shooters because I get freaked out when stuff sneaks up behind me, but Bioshock Infinite is one of the best games I’ve ever played. The story is fantastic and the design and music are even better, I couldn’t help but add these guys to my never ending list of characters to make.
Handmade with black paper and available on Etsy.
Shoutout to fit51391 on Deviant Art for the awesome Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs silhouette art!
Sony Animation just shared my Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs silhouettes from my DeviantArt page! It’s honestly one of my favorite animated films of all time and it was such fun to make a little tribute to the movie. And if you’ve somehow managed to devoid yourself of the fun that is this film, drop everything and watch it right now!

Now that it’s finally getting warmer in Ann Arbor (and with Easter coming up this weekend), I decided to post this little guy who has been sitting on my desk for a few weeks. This piece started as a tiny little sketch in one of my school notebooks before I decided to beef it up into a full illustration. This piece has several different kinds of paper, as well as watercolor and goache details and some post-processing in Photoshop to get it ready for print.
Besides the original (which will be up sometime this weekend), this design is also available as note cards! You can check them out in my Etsy shop.
The Giver by Lois Lowry
For my American Adolescence class we were asked to select from a number of topics for a presentation on one of our books for the semester. I jumped on the art option (since how often do you get to make art for English courses?) for my presentation on The Giver and made a paper illustration featuring a number of important passages from the text. Each element of the illustration went along with an aspect of my presentation and specific themes I touched upon in my analysis.
Overall, this was one of my quicker pieces and I only spent 7 hours on the design and execution (including a lot of procrastination breaks!)
Bonus points for anyone who can identify the specific scenes included in the image!
I was commissioned to make this set some time ago and haven’t gotten around to posting it here. I love this movie, so it was a blast to work on these!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Under the Sea.
I’m working on a few modified silhouette versions of some of the more popular characters. Up first, a new version of Ariel with her more mermaid-y hair!
Handcut from black paper.
Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
To seek the pale enchanted gold.
Bilbo Baggins. Hand-cut paper silhouette.
Some of you might notice that I recently switched my avatar. It’s from a little holiday-themed piece I’m working on that will hopefully be done before Christmas!
Keep an eye for the final version in a couple of weeks.
You know, you could stay forever, if you want to.

Alice in Wonderland.
I was recently commissioned to create four silhouette illustrations based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland for a local charity event. Each piece measures 8x10 inches and is entirely hand-cut for black paper.
