So I designed a logo for my brother’s band - not the album cover (that was done by band member, Jason Valis) but the image on the CD!

If you like death metal, i highly recommend checking them out! Like their new facebook page to get updates when they share music!

My friend nominated me for the A.L.S. Ice Bucket 2014 Challenge. I weighed my options carefully - donate $100.00 or donate a smaller sum and record myself telling my viewers to go to alsa.org … while dumping a bucket of ice water over my head.

I appreciate that the stunt’s viral nature is meant to encourage spreading the cause, but truthfully I’ve felt conflicted as to whether or not the message is getting lost in the icy shenanigans. Honestly, I didn’t know what A.L.S. was and the videos didn’t teach me a thing about it.

As a recent grad working part time and struggling to get my career off the ground, $100 is my entire month’s paycheck once my bills are paid — I’m 23 and still live with my parents and don’t have a car. I am more than happy to donate money, and I will be giving what I can, but $100.00 is more than I can afford.

So, rather than play by the rules I made my own. I invested my time and skills into researching A.L.S. and taught myself about the condition. This is my solution. This page is 11x 8.5 ” and can be printed and folded into a booklet. Assemble and pass around. Share knowledge, encourage empathy, understand that people affected deserve a cure. And if you can, donate! Create your own solution to generate interest and understanding!

And if you partake in the Ice Bucket Challenge, be sure to include information and stress what this trend is really all about!!

My entry for another Twitter collaboration - this time it’s a #FuturamaCollab! This is my spin on Amy Wong, but the “Universe One” version from the episode, The Farnsworth Parabox (if you don’t remember that one, click for more info!)
The collab is hosted by Dennie Bright (@denniebright).

Some linework for the comic I’m working on that I mentioned a few weeks ago! I have the first 4 pages drawn out, and here’s the “cover” for the first “issue” (I use quotations because I’m not sure how I will be putting them together later). 6 more pages + color and I’ll be ready to start launching it online!
