I am VERY excited to announce that I'm taking 2023 as a year to do a deep dive into illustration work. For many years I've dreamed of having a shop with my own designs for sale and now, at last, it's here! It took a near-death experience to make it happen, but that's how it goes I guess. While I've always worked design jobs and freelanced for clients, I just never seemed to get around to making my own work. Then in 2022, I developed a brain injury. Welp, it took many months to get back to normal but I lived! And now I'm doing the things I always dreamed of. Simple joys like spending a day drawing. To give myself a way to get the art out into the world, I set up a wee shop. It's name is Mondo Bop and I'm thinking of it as an emporium of goofy t-shirts, gifts and digital downloads. I hope that these designs build community (the Maker Wear collection) or provide inspiration (the Incite Hope collection - coming soon) or just spread a little happiness (the digital download toys - also coming soon). Really my new shop is an outlet for all the designs and ideas scampering around in my head like squirrels. Check it out at MondoBop.com.
