I recently completed my contribution to the Sacramento News and Review’s “Art Box” project, in which local artists paint and decorate SN&R’s newspaper boxes for public consumption.

Happy birthday, Mom, and apologies to Jeanette Lin!

Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD) decided to institute the program at all of its schools, and asked me to redesign…

I saw this online a few years back and decided to PhotoShop it for my own purposes. Apologies to Charles Schulz.
