Illustration A selection of digital and hand-rendered illustrations in a variety of styles.

Dominion Over the Fish
This graphite drawing was created on 104lb. translucent vellum using a .3 thickness mechanical pencil.

Multiply Thy Sorrow
Also created with graphite on translucent vellum.

Pleasant to the Eyes

She Had No Child

Cursed is the Ground

A City and a Tower
Integrating collage elements, this graphite and ink drawing utilizes children’s illustrations, library book pages and inked cityscapes.

Skate Decks

Peace, Love, Panda
If a panda and a Dayton Wire Wheel were combined, I think the result would look something like this...which begs the question, why would you do that?

Circus Seal
Rhetorically I ask, “Who doesn’t love a tongue-wagging, bandana-wearing, tube crawling circus seal flanked by fishes?” Now circus clowns on the other hand...

In (equality)
Iconographic poster that is a call for racial equality in the United States.

Drink in the Optimism
Created for Positive Posters, this poster offers a fun, bold and insightful look at the theme A Glass Half Full. On the stem of the “P” letterform, uplifting and inspiring words have been included — contained within these inspirational words are highlighted letters, which spell out the theme “half full.”

Four Hours of Love
Originally published in the Copenhagen-based art + design magazine Wonderland. This work was inspired by an e-mail crippling spam blast that flooded my in-box with informative literature dedicated to horny young girls, erect penises and discount Viagra.

Illustrated Grid
This print utilizes the same grid structure as the grid-based posters, but incorporates line drawings and color blends.

Dome Interior
This vector illustration is inspired by a 1960s wooden tabletop game board. The board has really nice radial symmetry consisting of a large central circle and four round netted pockets in each of the four corners. I thought this was an interesting configuration with similarities to a highly stylized dome interior. My intent was to have the completed work feel as if you were standing directly beneath an architectural structure with depth — while working entirely with flat geometric shapes.

Not a Guarantee

It permits a number of possible uses and each designer can look for a solution appropriate to his personal style. But one must learn how to use the grid; it is an art that requires practice.”
