Steampunk & Cosplay Fashion Design & Illustration

My book is out!  This is so surreal.  This is my first book and I had no idea what to expect when I started, but the feedback has been so supportive and positive that I think maybe I’m not so bad at this. This book teaches how to design, which sets it apart from many how to draw books. There are illustration techniques, but it’s more about how to actually conceive and execute a look. The majority of the book (about 80%) contains actual photos of my designs.


I’ve been approached about some signings and I’m planning a release party for September (which I’m planning to make some of the designs from the book for), so keep an eye out for updates. There’s a comprehensive list of stockists on my publisher’s website here. It’s available for sure at Michael’s, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Indiebound, and Indigo. In the meantime, you can check out some sneak peaks on my Instagram.


Thanks to everyone involved! I couldn’t have done it without you!
