another private commission

Name illustration for a lovely little girl.  She is quite a diva already so her parents and aunt chose this design for her 4th birthday present.

The North Pacific Gyre

The North Pacific Gyre is a mass of trash two times the size of Texas floating in the Pacific Ocean.  It is mostly made entirely of plastic although it also includes tires, fishing nets and other wastes. 

Sketches for an article about making changes to fix what our actions have created...final to come soon....

Suitcases for Change

I recently did an illustration for an article about an inspiring 10 year old girl.  Her sister, a social worker, told her about foster children having to move around multiple times in their lives without a suitcase to hold their few belongings.  The children would use trash bags and whatever else they could find as they tried to find a permanent home.  The young girl set a goal to raise 300 suitcases to give to local foster children by the end of summer.  She surpassed her goal and by the end of the first year 4,000 suitcases were collected.  Ultimately her creative solution to a problem became an international non-profit organization.

Gotta Run

Just recently I started getting over an injury that stopped my running for quite a few months.  It took me awhile to sort through the sketches for the shoe illustration and the finishing touches were continually pushed back for more imminent deadlines.  But here they are...

Starbucks

There was a need to identify the Starbucks workers at the Boonsboro Virginia location and an idea was born that was slightly more ambitious than name tags.  I drew pictures of the baristas and displayed them as different coffee bags describing each as an individual blend.  All are displayed so that they appear to be sitting on a shelf for the customers' viewing pleasure. 

A fun little project that is not entirely website worthy but just perfect for the ol' blog...Brew some coffee and enjoy!

Album Artwork

I recently worked with the great band Mercutio on their logo and album artwork.  They perform all over Virginia right now but I would definitely keep your eye and ears on them...because they are amazing!
