July 2015 has been one of the busiest, most challenging, and most professionally rewarding months of my life. I illustrated my first ever cover, for T8N Magazine! When I saw my painting of St. Albert mayor Nolan Crouse as a bear in print and available in public, I got a huge rush and felt a big sense of accomplishment. I loved working with the magazine and felt so honoured that the staff chose me to work on their first illustrated cover. I also enjoyed being interviewed and sharing my thoughts on the market scene in Edmonton and Calgary, what inspires me, and where I see myself in five years.
