I’m really excited to design a Summer 2013 dress collection with the lovely ladies over at Nooworks. They run a shop in the Mission that sells some of my favorite dresses, and they developed a great reputation for working with local artists to create originaltextiles.
The jungle cat and naked lady patterns I designed were made into numerous colorful dress designs (check out the jungle cat one on Modcloth), leggings, t-shirt designs, and even pillows! For opening night I painted a mural and we did animated projections.
In collaboration with Noise Pop Culture Club and Isotope Comics I covered Yo La Tengo, Kid Koala, Nobunny and The Ferocious Few in comic book reviews.
In 2012 I returned with SPIN magazine and covered The Fresh and Onlys and Disappears performing at the Bottom of the Hill.
Monster Girls started as a project at work to get everyone to take a break from game design and draw something different. We started drawing monsters, all on the Cintique in a limited amount of time. These are some of my favorite results.
Fox Head Stew mixes glam rock, psychedelic powers, and self-discovery through art classes, guitar lust, booze, and one-night-stands. Sam finds escape from his depression by playing music, while Dee tries to hide her strange inner-self through college parties, drinking, and getting lost in private, hallucinatory flights-of-fancy. Float along as Dee’s daily life gets distorted with lucid fantasies, strange creatures, vivid music and gorgeous daydreams in Jamaica Dyer’s original take on the quarter-life crisis.

As a way to cleanse my palette and think about design differently, I started drawing mandalas.

This is a mixed-bag from the last year, including some animated pages from my storybook for adults collaboration "Everybody Sucks at First" , some flashy animation I contributed to Golden Void's music video Virtue, and to Groom's video "Infinity Collar".
