One from a series of 'Odd Characters' repeating half-drop patterns I've made.  This series is always a slanting group of monsters, robots, tentacles and other assorted odd fellows.

Cabinet of Curiosities
The idea of Cabinet of Curiosities (aka the WunderKammer) has long fascinated me. I've been exploring this topic in both patterns and a work-in-progress picture book.

A project as was working on right at the end of my time with The Wall Street Journal - an interactive looking at the various arms of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter universe.

The Yeti Goes Camping Pattern

I'm a longtime defender and admirer of The Yeti.

P.S. 10 Benefit Pattern
A drawing for a benefit auction for P.S. 10 in Brooklyn, New York. I subsequently made a repeating pattern from the original drawing.

Driftwood Repeating Pattern
Drawn on location in Sea Ranch California.

I'm a big fan of drawing driftwood.

Monster Wallpaper

I like the idea of a wallpaper that looks fancy and floral from afar but upon close inspection is all tentacles, fangs and claws.
