I'm featured in The Missing Slate

I have some exciting news.  About a month ago, Moeed Tariq, the creative director of The Missing Slate-- a South Asian arts and lifestyle magazine-- contacted me, asking if I wanted to be the featured artist for the summer issue.  He first noticed me because of my Bunnie Antoinette piece; and he thought my work in general would fit the theme of the issue, which would be revolution (in honor of the Arab Spring) and women's rights.  He chose my Tanit painting for the cover, which seemed a perfect choice given that she's an ancient North African goddess.  

Inside is an interview with me, and you can read the issue for free online here (you do need to sign in through Wordpress to view the issues-- it's easy to register though).  A print copy is for sale-- you can also buy a PDF for the great price of $2.

I hope you guys enjoy!

I only saw the cover picture but the article was get I love the part

Are there any illustrators in particular that you greatly admire?

I really admire people who can paint and draw in their sleep, since I know a lot of digital illustrators who’ve allowed those skills to atrophy. Rebecca Guay is one of my favorite traditional artists– I’ve actually met her in person several times, and she’s really gracious and wonderful to talk to. (Her paintings also look amazing when you see them in person.) The late Trina Schart Hyman is another favorite artist; I also love Valerie Valusek, Donato, Kinuko Craft, and Owen Smith.
