Illustrations & Patterns

One of my favorite things to do is draw. I can not remember a time where I wasn’t drawing or creating something (sorry for cutting up all those family pictures Mom) So needless to say doing this for a living is pretty good. I was fortunate enough to be asked by a very cool clothing […]
