Paper Trail

Lately I’ve had the opportunity to have my work featured in one of Portland’s local papers, The Portland Mercury. I’ve been a Merc fan for a while so it’s been great to be involved. The assignments I’ve gotten so far have been a lot of fun and I hope to do more. Here are the pieces I’ve had printed so far.
