67 pages of a sexy, psychadelic, adrenaline fueled, techno fairytale.
Mikey hears a mysterious song that throws him out of reality into a kaleidoscopic roller coaster ride. He has to learn what this song is, and his obsessions could take him beyond the limits of reality.
Boké Expressway is my trippy, adrenaline-fueled series about sex, drugs & techno. I write, illustrate, and design all aspects of this series.
The first volume, 'Chasing a Song' was recently fully funded on Kickstarter and is now in print. The story is about Mikey, a throwback raver who hears a mysterious song at a club and becomes obsessed with finding it. The song seems to exist nowhere but in his own, drug-ridden mind. The DJs don't know it, his friends don't care, and even the song itself begins to taunt him when it takes shape as a modern day siren, beckoning him to follow her.
This was a short story submitted to the upcoming EnterVoid anthology, 'Pulpito.'
The theme of the anthology is creativity and creation; I wanted to convey the feeling a lot of us who work day jobs have when we're truly obsessed with our side projects or hobbies and think about them all day long.
I've actually always enjoyed origami and folded this crane to use as reference before drawing the pages.

Our Fair City is a sci-fi podcast done in old radio style with scripts, actors, and sound effects. The past couple years I've done some cover art for their show, as well as comic pages for a yearly anthology they publish to supplement the storylines in the show.

Art for a Drawing Event run by Kelly Cantilena & Leo Perez
While working at Digitas, I had the pleasure of designing an app for the City of Chicago to find free events by the Parks District.
Originaly, Digitas produced a magazine that listed all events, but this became hard to distribute and update, we proposed a mobile app to solve those problems.
I created a functional prototype, that was pitched to the Parks District and won Digitas the business to design and build a fully functioning app.

Available on iOS and Android.
The app made all events sortable by dates and categories, and were easy for the Parks District to update through their existing events database.
Users can add events to a list of favorites, from which they'll receive updates if events are updated or cancelled. Previously before the app, there was no way for attendees to know unless they looked at the website or physically went to the event.
Nicki & Skinny's Wedding Invitations
The typography balances the gaudiness of the Vegas style on front with enough class in the rest of the type choices to make it a proper wedding invitation, while giving the busy feel of Vegas overall.
