Slowly going to make the switch to Tumblr

Yes, I finally have given in...or rather...I am going to give it a try and see if I like it. I started up a tumblr a while ago, but now I am going to only post art updates there. If you liked following me here...please follow me now at my Tumblr:

An illustration I did for Jetzt Magazine, based in Germany. The art director asked me to do a modern interpretation of the Greek Goddess, Europa...who had a strange twisted story involving being kidnapped, then raped by Zeus (in the form of a bull).

So...this was the solution we both came up with! :)

Sperry Top-Sider

I had the opportunity to design a banner for a in-store display for Sperry Top-Sider. This was featured in Journeys stores all across the country! As one of my first major advertising jobs - I was/am super excited about this!!

Another one for Businessweek!

Did this piece for Bloomberg Businessweek a little while ago...the story was about whether or not the legalization of marijuana would actually help the economy, as a number of peoeple claim. This article (a book I guess this book) - seemed to think it would NOT help the economy. Probably only the legalization of ALL drugs would help this sort of thing. Good luck with that happening! If you want to read the full story, click here.

Baltimore Citypaper cover

I recently completed this cover for the Bmore Citypaper. The art director really wanted to incorporate photographs into my hand-lettering, something I haven't really done in the past! But I was very happy to experiment and figure out a solution. For this - I printed the photos he provided and photocopied them several times over, to reduce the quality of the image. I then scanned my copies back into the computer, and placed them in my illustration. I'm sure there is some way to get this effect in Photoshop, but I really wanted to get it authentically.
