In the fall of 2016 I was introduced to table-top gaming, and since then I have maintained a number of campaigns with friends. There's something very satisfying to me in populating traditional fantasy spaces with more lighthearted illustrations.

A friend and fellow illustrator, Lauren Seider, put together a large format risographed zine about raincoat wearing do-gooders. She asked others to make contributions and I ended up making this pattern which she gleefully accepted as endpages. While building the assets I realized I could make a number of alternate color versions.
I was contacted by FARM cafe, a "pay what you can" cafe in my home town of Boone, NC, to design an image for their fifth year anniversary. The approach was inspired specifically by some great illustrated 70s wallpaper they have in their kitchen.
