I am an artist from Chicago, IL. My work is often inspired by music, film, comics, people, relationships, and travel. When I'm not drawing I'm falling off my skateboard or driving from city to city with my band. I am available to hire for editorial work, portraits, gig posters, and other forms of illustration.

Clients include The Boston Globe, VICE, Noisey, The L.A. Times, The Atlantic, Jack Daniel's, Chicago Reader, Buzzfeed News, LiveNation, Love + Radio, Newcity, Willamette Week, FreemanXP, Foreign Policy Magazine, Camaraderie Records, Kickstand Productions, The Dallas Observer, Monterey County Weekly, NOW Toronto, De Volkskrant, C-Ville Weekly, and more.

I have made art for bands like Against Me!, AJJ, The Front Bottoms, Such Gold, Typesetter, Decent Criminal, and my own band Kali Masi. I love making work for bands so please reach out if you're interested.

My comics have appeared in Thrasher Magazine and the Linework Comics Anthology.

The majority of the art on this site is available to purchase as a print. Send over an email and I'll ship you a print.
