Tin House


I just finished drawing my very first commissioned portrait. Alexis Smith, the author of Glaciers (Tin House 2012), and Islands (forthcoming, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), asked me to draw her portrait for her new author photo. I would like to continue to draw portraits for writers and artists to support myself while I take off from working to write a novel all winter and spring in France. If you’d like to commission a portrait from me, and help support me as I write, please send me an email. 

Bianca Stone and Octopus Books and Tin House Books were total valentines because Bianca’s book of poems, Someone Else’s Wedding Vows, will be co-published by Octopus Books and Tin House Books in March. Watch Bianca’s video if you want proof. You’ll be able to pre-order it from our new website soon. I’ll let you know, of course, but maybe you should mark that down too.
