A collection of illustrations I've done for various independant Anthology and Zine publications.
My piece for the Cartoon Girls Zine Vol 2 ~ 90's edition. A celebration of cartoon girls

organization that fosters creativity and artistic opportunity for young people.

My piece for the Pokemon GO charity zine; a non-profit 3 volume zine featuring illustrations from each team: Valor, Mystic and Instinct. All proceeds went to Child's Play Charity. 2016.
My pieces for the 1,001 Knights Anthology. 1001 Knights is a massive
3-volume anthology project focusing on creating people-positive characters with feminist overtones. Over the course of 3 volumes, 250+ artists explore themes about what it means to be a knight and what makes for a strong character through illustration, comics, poetry, and prose. My characters were inspired by female knights (of course), magical girls and feminine villains like Nui Harime and Seraphina (Disgaea), whose badass, ruthless and often violent personalities are in total contrast with their appearance. 2015.
My piece for Ladies of Literature Volume 2, an illustrated anthology featuring 100 artists and 100 book recommendations. Medea is an ancient Greek tragedy written by Euripides; a sequel to the myth of Jason and the Argonauts.
Medea and Jason first meet in "Jason and the Argonauts". Jason's thrown has been usurped by his uncle and he must complete a series of tasks in order to become the rightful king of Iolcos. On his journey he meets Medea, a beautiful, powerful and intelligent sorceress, who falls in love with Jason and uses her magic to help him complete his quest for the Golden Fleece.
In the sequel, "Medea", Jason decides to marry Glauce, the daughter of Creon (king of Corinth) in order to raise his own status. He does so despite Medea's significant sacrifices (especially to her family) while aiding in his quest for the Golden Fleece. Medea is of course furious, especially because she is an outsider in Corinth and has relinquished all ties to her family for Jason. With nothing left to lose and unwilling to allow her enemies to have any kind of victory she brutally murders Jason’s new bride, Creon (the King of Corinth), as well as her own two sons to cause Jason the ultimate suffering. Medea is a cunning and cold manipulator: she sees through the false pieties and hypocritical values of her enemies, and uses their own moral bankruptcy against them. Her revenge is total, but it comes at the cost of everything she holds dear.
