Cat and Dog Cookbook

I recently finished this project for veterinary doctor Janine Oliver. She asked me to do these illustrations for a cat and dog cookbook that she is writing. It was a great opportunity to have complete freedom with the humor and aesthetic. I've learned a lot from the project and I can't wait for the book to be published, which should be out later this year!

Sky Oar: Conceptual Skyscraper

The "Port Town" flavor of Stockholm, Sweden for which this skyscraper is destined served to define its form and organization. Because Stockholm is planned in a medieval manner, the town has many hearts, or organelles that define important centers. These different organelles, spaced about as they are, counterbalance each other, much the same way the oars of the port's ships work against each other to propel. Throughout Stockholm there are many plazas and places of rest; an organization that is brought into the different centers of the structure as well as the space that is formed beneath.
