our limitless love

This illustration is now available exclusively at Disneyland’s Wonderground Gallery.

I will be there signing on July 21, 28 and 29 from 11-1pm. I will also be performing live wood burnings the last weekend at Rushin’ River Outfitters inside California Adventure from 2-5p.

Out first family ride

Two new illustrations were released this weekend with Disney. Both were inspired by my daughter – her first ride and her love of Mickey and Minnie Mouse. I think of the Small World ride as my family’s first experience with representation. We immigrated in the 80s to Southern California and inside Disneyland we found ourselves reflected in these adorable dolls from India. Each time we went on the ride I would watch my mom point and happily sing along, feeling in that moment that we were welcome. I can only hope that the message and beauty of that idea will prevail. Small world will always have a special place in my heart because of that experience with my mom. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to create this piece. Drawing the dolls in front of the clock was my absolute favorite part!

If you are in Downtown Disney, you can find this piece in the Wonderground Gallery. I will be there signing on July 21, 28 and 29 from 11-1pm. I will also be performing live wood burnings the last weekend at Rushin’ River Outfitters inside California Adventure. This past weekend I created owls and a lynx, both original, one of a kind and available there for $125.

I hope you have a good week!

Jasmine graphic novel

I wrote, drew and colored (with flatting help from Nickole Caimol) this graphic novel last year with Disney Publishing. You can read about it in the exclusive press release in the Hollywood Reporter. It releases in Oct with Dark Horse Comics and is available for pre-order here. I hope you enjoy it!
