About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Science Illustrator and Artist
Location Los Gatos, CA, United States
Introduction I've always been an artist, and my fascination with the natural world led me to science illustration. Dope Nopes is a project where I bring you some of my favorite obscure, scary, or weird creatures that I find interesting. I paint them, and then Chase Peterson describes them for you in his own unique way. Enjoy! Check out more of my artwork at
Interests Science Illustration, Art, and sharks mainly. Also music, writing, history, hiking, craft beer, fossil collecting, and other nerdy stuff.
Favorite Music Sigur Ros ( check out my sketchbook at )
Favorite Books Ghostwritten, A Winter's Tale, Cloud Atlas, East of Eden, The Fisherman, The Ritual, Blood Meridian, everything by Wade Davis
