Mister Unicorn

How did Unicorn begin?
Unicorn Being a Jerk started at Otis College of Art & Design. I took an intro to illustration course, in the spring, taught by JT Steiny, and the only requirement was a 12 page book. In that course, I made 'Unicorn Having Fun', and expanded it to it's current length in the first month of the summer.

After the first Unicorn book was finished, I began compiling and comparing lists of ideas for Unicorn. There was an obvious pattern in the material that lent itself to Unicorn being a lowlife.

From September to December, I worked to create every illustration that would finally become 'Unicorn Being a Jerk'.
