Celebrating Community with Xbox & 2K Foundations

“Back in September, 2K announced the establishment of 2K Foundations – a program dedicated to supporting underserved communities across the country by refurbishing basketball courts and promoting science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education programming for youth… The new court features the work of local Charlotte artist and activist, Georgie Nakima, who strives to promote the importance of diversity through her work.”

Her work in turn has sparked others to create music, stories, and now ... salad."  Read more at the link!

Scientific Illustration

This drawing is over four years old! Did this for a project under my research mentor investigating movement of patients with Parkinson's disease. But I mostly just love it for the realism. 

Project Illustration

Last Spring, I joined iSWOOP (Interpreters and Scientists Working on our Parks) to Bar Harbor, Maine where we investigated the scope of Acadia Park and the carriage roads built under John Rockefeller. My role was the technical illustrator, here are the final results!
