Public Speaking

Final_cover

Apparently Pearson has been publishing this book for quite some time and was looking to update the cover. From what I was told they always use illustrated covers for this series, so I was thrilled when my work was selected for the ninth edition. Public speaking has never been my favorite activity, but it was a fun cover to do! And I hope it helps me warm to the idea of speaking... Read More

DRAFT magazine

Sometimes I’m amazed at just how fitting a job is for me…as if the client knew me in advance. When I was asked to illustrate a feature for DRAFT magazine, I was thrilled. For those that know me, I’m a HUGE fan of craft beer and DRAFT asked me to illustrate a beer release party! Needless to say this was a fun piece to do…I even used a few friends as models…and... Read More

The first, a wine-themed spoof of the show “Portlandia“, and the second, a visual depiction of the five stages of “Enology”….which is the science of wine and wine making. The job had a 1-2 day turnaround,... Read More

Here is a piece I worked on last month for The Robb Report’s Private Aviation Sourcebook. The piece was about how to “retrofit” your aircraft, basically a plane “make-over”. It was fun to do and a chance to play around with a relatively straight forward piece. I’d love to hear what you think.  Read More

The Death Project

Yes, The Death Project! I was commissioned last month for a series of editorial illustrations dealing with the finality of death…at least in terms of wealth management. One of my favorite clients,  Senior Market Advisor asked me to illustrate a few spots to decorate the feature. It was a fun, in a morbid sort of way! Love to hear your thoughts.  Read More
