The last few weeks...

Sometimes it seems like one piece leads to another piece and you forget to post anything onto the internet. Here are a few published pieces that I like a lot.

The Globe & Mail: The piece above is for a story about a 25 year old who goes through a quarter life crisis. In the essay, he alludes to taking on YOLO seriously by trying a bunch of new experiences. Click here to read about it.

Honolulu Magazine: For the January issue, I illustrated a story about how we live next door to our neighbors and get to know them by not really getting to know them. We piece together little things like hearing conversations through the wall, getting their mail by accident, seeing moving boxes on the stairs, police tape on their door and even the awkward small talk in the hall way.

Baltimore City Paper: I illustrated one of the fiction contest winners for the City paper. The fictional story I illustrated is about a wealthy magazine editor who takes his own life on Harvard’s campus after he is caught plagiarizing his interns book idea. The story is more gritty than I described here, which is why I love working for Alt Weeklys. Click here to read about it.

LA Times: This is for a story about a man who gives the most unromantic marriage proposal after he wrecks his girlfriends car. This then turns into a really bad wedding and awkward honey moon. Click here to read about it.

"Survivor" - LA Times

My latest piece for Wes at the LA Times is for a section called “LA Affairs.” Essentially, the story describes the divorce of a couple and the husband’s subsequent admittance into rehab and a halfway house. A judge granted him visitation rights to see his children once a week during dinner at his exes’ house. During the weekly visits the family also watched “Survivor” together. The narrative of Survivor was the thread that unified them even when his ex-wife wished to “kick him off the island.” It is a very interesting piece. Below are a few sketches.
