 Here's today's piece for the NY Times Op/Ed section. The article is about hurricane Sandy's destruction of lab equipment, samples, and a lifetime worth medical research. Thanks again to Matthew Dorfman for throwing me an awesome assignment!

I recently did four spots for Stanford Social Innovation Review, which is a magazine dedicated to non-profit business. The articles were pretty dense and quite a challenge to come up with non-cliche images. It was a good challenge and exercise...always trying to get better at this problem solving!

I made this sculpture last week for a gift exchange...but then last minute decided that it was too creepy to give. It's made of foam, tracing paper, watercolor, graphite, brass pins, and resin. I love these gross sculptures! I want to do more!

I've been pretty busy recently, and have neglected posting some cool stuff. A while back the crew over at Soulpancake visited my studio and filmed a time lapse video of me painting from start to finish and interviewed me about my process. It was really fun and the crew were total pros! Despite my blabbering on, their editing really made me sound smart! Haha! Thanks guys!

Here's a few of my post-its from the show:

 Here's a piece I did recently for the health section of NY Times about the the morning after pill becoming available to teenagers. I really really love how it turned out! Thanks a bunch to Peter Morance.
