I’m kicking off 2016 with some tongue-in-cheek blasphemy. The first design of the new year is a portrait of our Lord and saver with his chosen backup format.
Frozen in PA: The 2015 Festival of Ice map
It’s hard to believe that, after being part of the news team that covered the first Festival of Ice in the Abingtons many years ago, I’m still making contributions to one of the most unique events in Lackawanna County. The Festival of Ice, which is normally held in South Abington Township, Clarks Summit, and Clarks […]
Maker Monday and waxing poetic about geek art
Tomorrow’s kind of an important day for me, and I’m freaking out a little bit. At 7 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 26, I’m presenting an hour-long discussion on digital art at the Scranton Public Library as part of their ongoing Maker Monday series. In my discussion, I’ll be explaining everything from concept to final product […]
Building a Brand: The Process of Building the Great Lehigh Valley Soccer Festival Logo
Late last year, I was fortunate to be asked to build a logo design for the upcoming Great Lehigh Valley Soccer Festival through my freelance gig with Spectyr Media. As a reference, here is the past logo that was attached to the original email request. Looking critically at the old logo, it was clear […]
My Top 14 Favorite Napkins of 2014
There are plenty of ways to reflect on a year, but as someone who draws every day of the school year I thought I’d share some of my favorite #napkinart pieces from 2014.

Pipe dream: Me, Polaris, “Pete and Pete,” and Chicago
So, it’s time I let out a major secret that I teased on Facebook a few days ago.
But first, as it is with all important things, some background.
Please don’t swipe my work: An artist’s lament
It’s admittedly a rare occasion that my day job at Lackawanna College and my pop culture nerdiness cross paths with each other, so I feel the need to talk about a recent incident. You see, Lackawanna turns 120 this September and we recently needed an image to use for a celebratory birthday cake. I reached […]
Sign me up, Hylian warrior!
It’s been far too long since I completed a design, and I’ve had this one in the back of my mind for quite some time. Combining the iconic Uncle Sam recruitment poster and some of the themes from the upcoming “Hyrule Warriors” title, I’m happy to present “Recruitment.” This one took a good amount of […]
I’m not a malefactor, I’m a lagomorph!
One of my fondest gaming memories as a kid was that of the point-and-click adventure known as “Sam and Max Hit the Road.” I remember diving headfirst into the game after discovering it on the shelf at a local PC store and the oddball humor involved in its digital genius. Plus, how could I not […]
I’m excited to announce that just four days separate us from my next show, featuring new pieces like the one posted above! I’m one of two artists showing work at Sole to Soul, 535 S. State St., Clarks Summit, for their Second Friday art walk. Dorothy O’Connor, the owner, was kind enough to embrace my […]
