You found me!

Whew! Way to go. I think you’re a winner and I hope you do, too. I’m an illustrator and designer in Little Rock with my wife, 7 year old twin boys, three year old daughter, and (basically) one dog and two cats.

Why am I doing this?

I have been a freelance designer and illustrator for many years. In recent years our family has decided to start bringing our creative work to the forefront, including creating characters with my sons, supporting new Arkansas-based publications, and working on a children's book as a family. We've been thinking deeply about how to use our resources and skills to build up strong communities. Many people have asked me how they can support our efforts. This page is a product of that ask.



The Story:

Since my sons were very young they have shown affinity for a wide range of toys, clothes, TV shows, etc. One ofthem in particular loves pink, hair berets, headbands, dresses and painted nails. He also loves legos and monster trucks and Star Wars. The gender boxes the world forces on us have little relevancy in our home.

No matter who they grow up to be, I want my kids to know many examples of advocacy, acceptance of self, joy, and resistance. And I want us to create those stories together as a family alongside our communities.


Projects you'll be supporting


Bash-O-Bash

Bash-O-Bash is the name I've given to the collaborative art effort between my twin 7 year old sons and I. It was a phrase one of my sons used to say when playing with cars. While my sons are figuring out who they are and growing up fluid in a world filled with boxes, I want to create artwork that reflects the better world we want to build.

I am creating the Bash-O-Bash characters as a way to explore everyday life and enrich the lives of kids and young adults like my son. The growing cast of characters are all shapes and sizes and just about as conforming and nonconforming as they come. I want kids to grow up seeing characters who are joyful, curious and gracious. Who are assertive, get lonely, are shy. Who are well aware that they are different and deal with it in each their own way.

Together as a family we're working on developing these characters and we hope you'll join us. You can find these characters on shirts, mugs..... etc. In the future, you'll be able to find these characters in the stories themselves.

Help me get the word out about Bash-O-Bash by telling your friends with kids, supporting me here on Patreon, ordering  stickers, kids shirts, cards, notebooks, and more at my Bash-O-Bash store.
 

No Sorrow

[Update! While I am still pursuing No Sorrow projects as time allows, I will not be tying it into Patreon. This is so I can put my efforts more thorough on all-things Bash-O-Bash.]

No Sorrow is a personal art project benefiting the LGBTQ news and culture publication Out in Arkansas. 100% of the profits are donated to help support OIA's current reporting and eventual official launch.
 
Thanks and Aloha!
