Mashing Things Up

I love Dr. Who and I love Star Trek. 

One day I got to thinking... What IF the Daleks and Borg encountered each other in space?  How would that galactic battle go down? Who would win? I'm thinking the Daleks would but I can't know for sure until the episode is written. Steven Moffat, won't you please find the time to write it? Pretty please?

Anyways, based off a little sketch I did a while back, I made this design and screen printed a few shirts last week. I think I might make more of them but maybe in a 1 or 2-color design instead of this 4-color one. Hmm, we shall see.                                                              Allons-y!

City Zoo Quest

 I had the great pleasure to design and illustrate some game boards for Lakeshore Learning Materials last year and now that they're available I can start sharing them with you!

This City Zoo Quest game is targeted for grades 1-2 and you can see from the sketch that there were quite a few changes along the way to get to the final product. I've also included an in-progress snapshot of the style I started this board in. I really liked how it was coming out, but realized the rendering was too young and in order to be consistent in style with the older game boards I knew I'd be creating, (I'll post those soon) I changed course and chose a coloring style that would work across the board.
