Much of my artwork imitates motifs in my life, and this new tote bag is a pretty good example of that trend:
This super-high quality, organic cotton twill tote is silkscreened with a black cat, and a stack of books. Hey, look! Two things I love. Lo and behold:
This tote bag was screen printed by hand and made in collaboration with my awesome friends at BuyOlympia who also stock and sell lots of things I make in their incredible shop, Land, in Portland, Oregon.
This design is also available as a limited edition letterpress poster with metallic inks!

I’m currently in the “COSMOS” exhibition at Light Grey Art Lab in Minneapolis, MN! Light Grey Art Lab COSMOS brought together 100 international artists to contribute a symbolic depiction of one of the constellations or nearby astral bodies. The works are all LED lit so the show is really something you need to see in person — if you’re in the area, please check it out!
I created this painting to represent Jupiter (both with Jupiter’s Greek archetypal symbols — the eagle and the oak — as well as the traditional representation of all 67 moons in its fierce gravitational pull). This art is meant to represent might and power!
You can see the entire show online at lightgreyartlab.com. The show opened on October 30 and runs through November 22.
In conjunction with this show, Light Grey Art Lab launched the limited edition COSMOS Tarot & Oracle Deck. This boxed-set includes every piece of artwork from the COSMOS Exhibition, including mine! Thanks to Lindsey Nohl, Jenny Bookler, and everyone who made this amazing show possible.
