Progress on 'Fault In Our Stars'

Happy Advent! It's almost Christmas!

I'm crunching so I won't have too much work over the holidays, but I know there's still going to be a pile. It always happens when I have vacation coming up. I do have some progress on my fan piece for The Fault In Our Stars by John Green...

Back to crunching! ;)

Los Doctores H²

My good friend Tommy Heyne, an absolutely amazing doctor, commissioned this illustration as a present for his girlfriend, also a doctor! Basically, they're adorable and I was very happy to do it!

Real Or Not Real

Mockingjay is coming out in a week, so the only decent thing to do was make some fanart.
If you would like to buy a print or other fun things with this illustration please visit my shop:

Actually, originally I wanted to replace a small 5x7 framed print out that just said "Real Or Not Real" in my bedroom. It was just so bland, so anti-climatic, just ugg. So one night I just decided, hey let me draw up the phrase myself.

Below you will find my process. The project slowly became more intricate and then I just went into full illustration mode. Enjoy the images and honest comments.

Oh yeah, maybe I'll totally add Katniss and Peeta.
Maybe just some mockingjays and dots to fill up space. 
I'll be done in no time. 


Ooooh, what about one big mockingjay on top. 
And an arrow duhhh. 
Well, if I'm doing that I'd better make these 
characters a little more like better.

What colors pop in my room? Um, blue and orange.

These colors are looking more stupid by the minute.
What the heck am I doing?
Screw my room. 
I'll just do whatever works.

 Black cuz obvi. Peeta's hair needs to be blond. Yellow.
Yellow and Red. Like fire. Fire Girl. I'm soooo clever.
OMG I can add SYMBOLS.
Like a fan would.

Katniss Flower and leaves
Tracker Jackers
The Pearl

Refine. Refine. Refine. Then DONE!


I love the Hunger Games. The End.

Haiti & Disneyland

I just got back from a whirlwind of trips.

First I went to Haiti to volunteer at an orphanage. The children were the most adorable, darling things. I'm hoping to go back as soon as possible. I recently joined the board of Pennies for Haiti to continue working with the orphanages and schools there to give the kiddos hope for a better future. My favorite part of the whole thing though was teaching them how to draw St. Josephine Bakhita and... Mickey Mouse. Being able to share with them my love for God and art was the most rewarding thing I have done in a very long time.

Here is a video I put together for my co-workers at Disney Design Group.

I fell in love with a little boy named Mayson. It took me a while to accept that the possibility to adopt him was very low. By the time I would be able to he'd be a teenager, and the fact that I am single would make it twice as hard. For now I'll just pray for him and make sure he is taken care of.

My second trip, so very unlike the first, was a business trip to Disneyland. Everything was paid for and I went with three of the most amazing people. We visited the WDI Research Library, Walt Disney Archives, Animation Archives, Disney Animation studio, Disney Channel and the Disney Store headquarters. And we went to Disneyland of course. I love this company. I feel so blessed.

Now I'm home, happy to be home, taking care of my house, keeping my sister company–she just started work as a Spanish teacher!– and gearing up for the next few months. Praise God for all that He has done for me.

This is a present I made for my sister when she got her new job! 

 Stay happy!
