boldlyvangoghing said: Hi! I'm going to be a freshman at MICA in the fall and I was wondering if you had any tips? I'm really nervous cause Baltimore is really far from home and I don't really know what to expect at an art school. Thanks! I hope your senior year went well!
I think there are alot of preconceived notions about art school being really crazy, but personally I don’t think that’s true. It’s just a different type of normal. I’m not sure where you’re from, but the majority of students are from different states (or even out of the country) so maybe you’ll be able to make connections with people from your state. The MICA community is really welcoming and you’ll be around alot of talented, inspiring peers. Freshman year is pretty tough with adjusting to a new place, the work load, and starting off without really knowing anyone, but if it makes you feel better, most of the freshman are in your same position. Everyone is at a different place when they start, I think it’s important not to compare yourself and make the most of your time. Lastly don’t take critiques personally and be open to what your teachers and peers say during crit. Good luck with your freshman year!

Here’s a piece from my thesis! I’m illustrating editorial articles. This one is from Nautilus magazine about how people used to steal the skulls of brilliant minds to better understand their genius.
Hey guys, I know this is quite overdue, but there is now a free PDF download available of MOON POWER! Sorry it took me so long to get around to, but now it is here. It’s free and in my Gumroad shop right now, alongside some of my comics which are ALSO free!
The zine features stunning art by over 40 illustrators such as Barbara Tarr, Andrea Kalfas, Kali Ciesemier, Natasha Allegri, Joanna Krotka, Sloane Leong, Aleks Sennwald and so many other super amazing individuals.
I hope y’all will reblog and share this, as I know there are so many people that wanted to get the zine and were unable to. It is seriously beautiful, all the work is just incredible.
Once again, thanks for your support. <3
