Since arriving, his work has progressively become weirder, more experimental, and increasingly full of puppets.
He is currently illustrating several books for Madhat press, animating on the automata project for the Science Museum of Minnesota, performing at Weird Stuff Only, and collaborating on a wide array of new and old projects with his partner, Ches Cipriano.
