A little over a year ago, Vic and I were sitting around outside Trouble Coffee on a lazy Sunday when I misread a T-shirt that I thought said “Slynt,” which got us talking about all of the Game of Thrones proper nouns that would make excellent heavy metal band names. I thought about how much fun I’d have custom-lettering a full set of band logos and started sketching immediately. Unfortunately, they quickly ended up on the back burner the way all personal projects do.

A couple months ago, I wrote and designed this piece and it did really well, so when my editors asked if I wanted to do another Game of Thrones piece for the finale, I remembered the metal band logos and pitched them the idea. Good thing they went for it, because I probably never would have finished these otherwise!

See the full piece here, which includes dumb little blurbs that I cobbled together from my fairly limited knowledge on the subject. Get excited for Sunday.

Drew this hungry anteater for a special Lucky Peach for Kids issue. I’ve yet to see a copy in person, so I don’t even know if this little guy made it in, but here he is anyway for your viewing pleasure!

My dumb beautiful cat loves this food magazine that I work for, so much that she sometimes tries to eat them.

I designed and illustrated a map and guide to Golden Gate Park, and the Bold Italic produced a beautiful screenprint of it! There are tiny animals and tiny poops and a pizza slice and a hot dog!

I wrote and illustrated a geeky little piece comparing the kingdoms of Game of Thrones to the neighborhoods of San Francisco. Had a blast drawing all of those little sigils, especially that Bolton flayed man and that Greyjoy kraken.

I designed and illustrated a limited edition mad libs-style zine for the very talented rapper K.Flay, that she is selling on her current tour. It involves burgers and ghosts and supernatural portals and so much more! If you’re in the Bay Area and want to snag a copy, K.Flay will be performing at Bottom of the Hill this Sunday.
