Camp Swing Mendocino

Recently I had the opportunity to create the promotional assets for "Camp Swing Mendocino" as a favor to a dear friend of mine, Jenna Chalmers. She and other talented dancers have worked at this camp for over 20 years teaching people Swing Dance, Balboa and the Lindy Hop.

I absolutely adored creating this vintage style poster and I hope I get to have more projects like this in the future. My love for all things vintage could not be put to a better use! haha

Thanks for reading--

Stay Awesome! 

Happy New Year 2016!

First piece of 2016! 
Wishing you all a prosper new year!

2015 was very challenging and quite rough for me in many levels.
Maybe one day I'll tell that story, but for now, I look forward to 2016 as
a new chapter. A better chapter full of wonderful things!

I hope 2016 is memorable for all of us. 

Looking forward to new adventures!
Best Wishes,

Mira Forecasts the Future: Character Design Studies

Every now and then I get the opportunity to illustrate a picture book that really excites me <3

This is the collection of Character Design studies I made for the main characters of "Mira Forecasts the Future" written by Kell Andrews and published by Sterling Publishing.

I had a fantastic time working with the art directing team at Sterling, really looking forward to working with them again :) 
The book is available for pre-order in Amazon and scheduled for June 2016 release.

I will be sharing interior art spreads and spot illustrations as we get close to the release date. 

Thank you very much for reading!
Wishing everyone a fantastic holiday season as well as
a very prosper new year. 

Onwards to 2016!
