My new picture book is out now!

Gadzooks! Archie the Daredevil Penguin is hiding a dark secret: he’s afraid of the water and the creatures who lurk in the briny deep! And it’s keeping him from attending the fish fry on Iceberg Nine.

But penguins aren’t supposed to be afraid of water, especially not daredevil penguins. He musn’t let his friends know! 

Can Archie find a way to soar above the clouds and stay out of the sea?

“A read-aloud winner.” –Publishers Weekly

“Silly and charming.” –Kirkus Reviews

“Kids will laugh at Archie’s flying flops and cheer when he conquers his fear.” –Booklist

Here is my book trailer for Archie the Daredevil Penguin. Huge thanks to music producer Kelp Chofs and Bob Jorin, who voiced the tallest penguin! I created the animation, wrote the song, and voiced the other three penguins. Sing-along, share, and enjoy!

BIG NEWS! This trailer has won the Best Original Score Picture Book Oscar for 2016!


I’m happy to report that this iotacon of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall has been selected to appear in this year’s American Illustration Annual! This image was done as a memorial on the event of Ms. Bacall’s death. I’ll be at the American Illustration Party in NYC on November 5th. Find me there and say hello!


Here’s a crazy iotacon job I just did for Tracy Toscano at United Hemispheres Magazine. It’s an infographic having something to do with phobias and Fall movies. Thanks Tracy!


I have designed mosaics for the restrooms at a fantastic Pan Asian restaurant in Madison, WI called Sujeo. This is the ladies’ room, featuring a dragon with a flaming pearl. The men’s room features Godzilla. Look for a photo of that one in the iotacons section. Big thanks to architect Jacob Morrison for getting me involved in this very fun project!
