Millersville U’s printshop is home to some choice signage.
The above signage is way more intimidating than the safety signage I did for the IPRC. Maybe I should have added more blood to the chopped fingers…

Here’s some signage I completed for a barn wedding in Austin, Texas. I’m looking forward to being tucked away for the cold months and drawing again for the first time in a long time. Curious to see what comes out after all the fantasy-drama TV shows I’ve been watching and the color theory I’ve been reading.

Monsters of Joyland
Stalk Spirit: Stalk Spirits dwell beneath lean stalks. Their sole purpose in life is to guard lean stalks from being ascended by treasure hunters and curious climbers. Lean stalks typically measure at 11,250 feet tall, thus Stalk Spirits live ignorantly of what they so ferociously protect.
Stalk Ogre: Stalk Ogres live atop lean stalks. They collect golden wigs weaved from magical hay blown upwards from nearby fields. Ogres would eagerly maul any who would attempt thievery upon them yet they usually never encounter another living being their entire existence.

I’ve been watching a lot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Adventure Time lately and felt like making Monsters of Joyland. Here’s the first three, I’ll keep drawing one a day ‘till the handmade paper runs out.
Grinders: Grinders hide in thornberry bushes and pop out to snatch passerbys. The sloshing of their gut hair alarms travelers of the Grinders’ presence and thus they are easily avoided. If caught, Grinders can swallow a victim whole, providing its daily meal and a thicker head of hair.
Vinegar and The Smiler: Vinegar fancies herself an ophiologist but usually (accidentally) kills her pet snakes within the first week. She collects their skulls on her dress as a reminder of their fleeting time together. She’s had The Smiler, a rare uni-horned viper, for three weeks.
Mimics: Mimics are coastal elves who enjoy deep-sea treasure hunting and fishing. Because they are naturally poor swimmers, they wear Chinook Salmon skin as aquatic aid coats. They manipulate their new form with magical, golden fishing line.
Stalk Spirits and Stalk Ogres

The third night before clearing out the studio felt like finals week during college; everyone is rushing to complete projects and everything is piled up and cluttered. Here are pictures of our workspaces because I thought it was so beautiful and interesting how differently we all worked and organized. I also think book arts studios are incapable of not being charming.

Just got back from North Carolina where my friends Madison and TJ had the most beautiful, perfect wedding. Here’s the guest book I made for them to match their wedding set. If you’re interested, I’d love to hear from you about making handmade invitations or guest books :)
