The Beginner’s Guide to Raising Chickens

This year’s biggest birthday gift came from above. Not only was June 4th my birthday, it was also the day I became a published illustrator!

Written by Anne Kuo and published by Callisto Media “The Beginner’s Guide to Raising Chickens” was published on June 4th, this month. There are about 25 of my illustrations in here of different types of chickens, coop-building diagrams, and more. If you’re into backyard chickens or if you’d like to start, this is the book for you!

Thank you Callisto Media and Anne Kuo for the opportunity!

Available on Amazon and Barnes&Nobles(online):

Theater Production Artist 5

Along with the illustrations, I also tackled the branding and social media marketing of play. It was a huge task but it turned out to great in the end. The theater company had performed this play in NYC a few years ago and it drew about 150 attendees. This time, it sold out a week ahead at over 600 attendees for one show in Ithaca, NY! Glad it worked!

This drawing was meant to capture Bonhoeffer’s prison cell in the concentration camps. Instead of drawing the entire room, I focused in on the window and the cracked walls to emphasize the conditions he had to live in.

Theater Production Artist 3

I don’t go to live theater much, but it was interesting to see my illustrations be a big part of the performance. I hope more theaters do it.

One of the background illustrations I did for the theater production. It was a dark and tragic time in Germany so my work had to capture that aura.

Theater Production Artist

For most of 2018, I was the illustrator for a theater/opera production that retold the story of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Bonhoeffer was a German theologian who spoke out against Hitler and the rise of Nazi power, and was later executed in the concentration camps.

I was hired to create about 15+ illustrations that were used as backdrops for each scenes in the play. Here’s a few photos of the production itself and you can see some of my illustrations in the background. More on the way.
