Check out my water polo designs on ViroBooks

Over the years, I have posted a few water polo posters and designs. This year, I finally decided to print some tshirts with the designs. Check out my designs at my Etsy shop, ViroBooks.

All profits will go to supporting the University of New Mexico women’s water polo team, whom I coach. UNM has a lot of talented players, but travel in this part of the country is truly taxing; our closest opponents are five hours away and we have frequently faced snow storms and car trouble.

I hope that ViroBooks will inspire my water polo designs going forward and inspire design in the water polo community.

Popping up again

I love pop-up books and cards. They join art and engineering in a way that tickles my brain. I love collecting books, and I love designing too.

That love of design has led me to reopen my Etsy store, ViroBooks. My shop has posters, pop-up cards, and hand-bound books.

My latest project is a set of four greeting cards: Cats dreaming of mischief. The cover shows a cat curled in sleep, and four different interiors show different kinds of idyllic kitty mayhem.

I had such fun designing and assembling these cards. I am brimming with inspiration, so look to see some future works related to New Mexico, Albuquerque, science, and more!
