I’ve finished the first of my Lady Pirate series and made it available as a print on Society 6!
I’ve been thinking about this for a long time - about pirates and colonialism, about birds and the beach, about bloody battles waged between British Naval forces and women pirates. I mean, the entire New World was just one colossal land grab, so I’d like to see an alternative history where things were maybe, at least here and there in the corners, slightly different.

I added this lovely Ziegfeld-style mermaid design to my Society 6 store this past weekend.
In addition to prints, there are totes, phone cases, and T Shirts.
Perfect for any beach or Mermaid Parade.

This is one of my favorite recent subway drawings. It’s part of a series of thumbnails for a larger project. An imaginary 1915. A seaside. Winged snakes and lizards.
