Wisecrack’s popular and long-running YouTube series Thug Notes (hosted by the unfailingly hilarious Sparky Sweets, Ph.D.—played by Greg Edwards) was my first foray into animation. 26 episodes and three years later, it remains one of my favorite projects.

Wisecrack’s hit YouTube series became a book in 2015! I joined a team of illustrators contributing spot illustrations in the show’s signature style. Published by Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, 2015.
Another one for the great people at Wisecrack; this time, I got to work with an incredible team to design the visual style for a fully-illustrated web show that explores the history and evolution of modern phenomena. We landed on a delightful mix of candy-colored surrealism and contemporary U.S. culture: C-SPAN in Dimension X. Here are some key frames and visual elements I created for the project.
