The Magic of Nocturne: a podcast about the night. 

The podcast Nocturne has been getting a lot of attention lately - and it's well-deserved. In The New Yorker, Sarah Larson writes a lengthy backstory about producer Vanessa Lowe and describes the podcast as having "a nocturnal mood, atmospheric and occasionally mysterious, that feels just right between the hours of eleven and deepest dark." iTunes featured Nocturne on its Podcast page this week as well. 

I met Vanessa in 2014, when she reached out and asked if I could create the logo and later, artwork for

Nocturne Podcast: Art and sound, together.  

I've always been a night person. As you've probably seen, I am a huge fan of dreaming and love to illustrate my dreams as a way to remember and understand them. Sometimes I find myself awake in the wee hours of the morning. It can be a time of wonder, of solitude, and of quiet creativity. And other times, it's not

A few months back, songwriter/podcast producer Vanessa Lowe asked me to design a logo for her new podcast, Nocturne, a beautiful collection of stories about the night. Now, we are embarking on a…Read more

Cherry Blossoms and Paper Airplanes 

Usually, my dream drawings are a mashup of all the dreams I remember after a given night. Sometimes these drawings have as many as 4 separate dreams in them. 

The other night, all I could remember when I woke up is a snippet of a dream, where I was gazing up at the sky and the sky was filled with cherry blossoms and paper airplanes. The image stuck with me throughout the morning, and I decided to capture this moment in an illustration.

This picture is my simplest dream drawing and it showed me that I don't…Read more

That's a...what??...  

Have you ever had a dream where you are in the middle of, say, a zoo, but you know that it's actually your house? Okay, maybe not a zoo. It could be a supermarket, an ice-skating rink, or perhaps it's a house. Wherever it is, it surely doesn't look anything like your home.

Illustrating Dreams: The Beginning 

About 9 years ago, when I first moved to San Francisco, I started having a recurring dream. I am in a house. The house is in the middle of a field, and it's an industrial area. People are coming in and out of the house, and the general feeling is one of being "stuck". Like the house is a place I left a long time ago, but, here I am again, and I don't want to be back. 

Over the years I have been in this house, in my dreams, many times. I was trying to describe the house to my husband, as the details were…Read more
