About the artist
"I am an illustrator, letterer(erer) and entrepreneur living and working in Tacoma, Washington. I graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), and I have run my in-house imprint, Anagram Press, since 2004. I was born 50 miles west of Wall Drug, grew up on Cape Cod, spent a year in Rome, and have crept more or less westward ever since. Now I've settled in a historic Craftsman house just a few blocks from the shores of Puget Sound, where I get to hear gulls again-my favorite sound in the world. I spend my days drawing pictures, my winters doing weird seasonal-foodie things like storing squash in the attic, and every free moment criss-crossing the continent on winding back roads."

"In addition to doing illustration and lettering work for clients, I spend a lot of my time on personal side projects. Besides the products I create under my Anagram Press brand, I am also one half of the creative team behind the Dead Feminists poster series."
