The Daily Zoo Collection

OVERVIEW

 

In the spring of 2005 I was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a type of blood cancer. One year later I started a sketchbook called The Daily Zoo and challenged myself to draw one animal each day for a year to aid my healing process. Fourteen years later and I'm still doing it.

 

Though it was begun purely as a personal project for my own enjoyment and therapy, I've since had the opportunity to publish several books in the Daily Zoo series. In addition to the images, the books include my reflections on the cancer experience and commentary on my creative process.

 

A portion of the books' proceeds supports cancer related charities and research.
