  2. PS Tumblr did I tell you I moved my website?  Maybe?  I’m here now:

    now people can stop saying “you don’t LOOK Italian” when they meet me*

    *apparently people read bernieillo as my last name, which, while entertaining, was not worth the confusion 

  3. Another illustration for BUST on Aggressive Thrifting.  Thanks to Lauren Clemente.

  10. I forgot to post this and I’m kind of embarrassed about that, but here is something I did for the Light Grey Art Lab 6 Degrees show recently.
This has been a weirdly emotional piece for me in that I regret that I didn’t make certain decisions/realizations in time (since I had to get postcards made) as far as how i would’ve approached the concept/aesthetics, but alas.  Moving forward and learning all that jazz.
Anyway, the show was about something local to you or where you live - my neighborhood (Bay Ridge, Brooklyn) has a fairly large elderly population full of women who remind me of my grandmother (that’s a compliment), so I stereotyped a little bit here, haha.

  13. Here’s a thing i did for BUST magazine a couple of months ago or so.  Thank you to AD/brunch-pal/illustrator/designer Lan Truong
also updated my website if anyone’s … interested lol (I went Cargo!  I feel like if it’s less of a pain to update maybe I’ll do it more often!) 
I’m ‘kind of in this lull of having a little too much on my plate right now to do much personal or exploratory work, but I’m trying to sketch here and there with the tiny beacon of hope that things should open up by February. Fingers crossed, anyway; I miss just making stuff and I think I really need that in my life again.
