I'm an American illustrator/author based in Fredrikstad, Norway. I've written and illustrated 20-plus kid's books and graphic novels, had the honor of designing a poster for Obama's first presidential campaign, and co-founded the Norwegian design brand, Lyng. My work has been recognized by 3X3, the Society of Illustrators, Norsk Barnebokinstitutt, and Visuelt.
I love working with bold colors and graphic forms. Much of my work centers around hard-edged vectors, but I'm just as comfortable exploring softer, textured aesthetics. Past and present commissions include surface design, editorial illustrations, iconography and environmental design, packaging, book covers, children's books and graphic novels.
