A ladybug landed on my hand one day. I thought about how strange it was

I was motivated to paint this piece when I was spending a ton of time working from my small studio apartment in NYC. The best lighting in my apartment is at 9:30 am, but the rest of the day it’s a bit cavelike. Having recently quit my job at the time, I remember everything was unexpected and I was just trying to embrace whatever came my way.
Steampunk Toy Series. Spudnik, as I call him, was a project that was inspired by a craft swap project hosted by 99homebrew. Designers and crafters alike randomly were paired with a different theme and a material. My theme was “steampunk” and my material was “old toy.” Every project was open for interpretation.

Many thanks to the steampunk gurus and the model artist out there that had inspired me to create something totally out of my realm. It was incredible to see this character take on a life of it’s own!

The Skittles Fizzl’d Fruits Campaign is an extension of a larger effort to create a world that would house all of skittles pack series. Skittles is known for innovating new flavor packs, such as Fizzl’d Fruits. This site was strategically built to be completely customizable each time a new flavor pack is released.
