    A Very Covid Christmas (Plus All Other Holidays and Basically Every Day This Year, For That Matter)

    I decided to ring in the 2020 holiday season by making what seems like the most fitting ornament to embody this mess of a year…  Presenting The SK Commemorative 2020 Covid Ornament! Sufficiently grumpy and full of all the 2020 feels, if I don’t say so myself… I was planning on just posting a quick…

    Halloween 2020 Homemade Costumes

    If you know me, you know I have a long tradition of making my kids’ (and mine when there’s time) Halloween costumes. This year, this COVID Year That Is 2020, was no exception.

    Posters: Save the People’s Postal Service

    The United States Postal Service is actually more American than apple pie. It was founded in 1639 and did you know, Benjamin Franklin was appointed the first Postmaster General in 1775.

I love creating crafts that don’t involve the purchase of single-use craft store materials (glitter, resins, plastics, excess packaging that will all end up in the trash) but rather focus on the reuse of other familiar materials/objects…

    Recent Client Work: Totally Collectible

    I created this action figure box-style photo op display for attendees to have fun with at the Singer booth during the Emerald City ComicCon in Seattle last week. I busted out some custom hand-drawn and drafted lettering too! It was a really fun project to conceptualize and design and from what I hear, it was…

    It’s March: Gun Reform Posters

    There’s not much to say that hasn’t already been said regarding all these horrific mass murders in this country and the changes desperately needed regarding gun reform.  Enough.  I’ve created 4 new posters for you to print and march with. Walk out of school with them, march with them to see your local leaders, and…
