The Reason Book Illustrations


Illustrate Lacey Sturm’s book The Reason, as well as other merchandise such as stickers and t-shirts for her concerts and speaking appearances.


Lacey sent me an early manuscript of her book and asked me to create illustrations based on what I read. I wanted to compliment her writing with what I drew. After seeing my initial concepts, we spent a few days together discussing the ideas of each chapter. She believed I could draw and tell a story that would speak to people in a different way than her words. I ended up illustrating the entire book chapter by chapter. Since the release of the book, I have had many people send me photographs of tattoos based on my illustrations. We also developed merchandise which included t-shirts and stickers that are sold at her concerts and speaking engagements.
