Drawing & Design Portfolio

2020/09/13

I’ve recently started as a freelance graphic designer for RStudio illustrating some Hex stickers for new and exciting packages!

Distill supports clarity in machine learning and technical writing.

Stacks is an R package for stacked ensemble modeling that aligns with the {tidymodels} ecosystem.

When my partner and I first got our pup, we went on a little climbing trip to the New River Gorge in West Virginia. It was a beautiful few days alternating between sport and trad, and trying to keep Luna from chewing on copperheads. We quickly gave up on regulating cicada comsumption - they were everywhere, massive, and apparently very tasty (or at least they made a fun buzzing sound when trapped in some chompers). A good majority of surrounding trees had obvious signs of damage where the cicadas created slits in the branches to lay their eggs. Upon closer inspection, they’re actually really beautiful. I drew these 3 cicadas while channeling van Gogh, but mostly while breaking in my new tablet.

I’ve finally started watching Avatar the last airbender, and I am 100% here for the fun fictional animals. Stay tuned for turtle ducks!

Here’s a drawing of my study species! This one I drew for a 6 minute talk I gave at this year’s Animal Behavior Society (virtual) Conference. Here’s a link to the entire talk if you’d like to see more of my vector art OR if you want to learn about how red-eyed treefrog embryos sense predator vibrations and choose their own birthdays!
