Illustrations for Motherboard, Vice Media's technology and culture vertical, with a penchant for talking about the future.

The Pentagon Supplied Soldiers with Defective Gun Parts That Sometimes ExplodE
For these pieces, I used court document diagrams of the guns in question as source material for me to re-create hastily– painted in the same manner that the government contractors assembled the guns in question. In stark contrast to the sterile exploded gun diagrams which detailed the weapon's malfunction,  my paintings are shoddy, misguided, and covered in finger prints.
Tomorrow's Terrorist
What new technologies could be used by terrorists in the coming years? A speculative look at the nefarious side of technology– including drones, 3D printers, and anti-surveillance equipment.
