Detailed children’s book illustration of animals at a construction site.

Construction Animals Children’s Book

This is a detailed series of illustrations I created for a children’s book teaching kids about construction. Each double-page spread was packed with animal characters, vehicles, tools, and activities. The book challenges kids to hunt out objects and solve problems within the illustration, so I had to draw everything in a way that certain elements were intentionally hard to find. I had a lot of fun with this, because I had a lot of freedom to design the characters and draw them in my style.

….turned out great! Awesome job!

Website app UI illustration and design featuring cartoon characters

Website Background Illustration for e-commerce site

I was hired to illustrate and design a series of characters and backgrounds for an e-commerce website.  The characters were all cartoon “blockheads” that interact with the hand-drawn user-interface we designed for the website.  It was a fun challenge to come up with interesting layouts that didn’t compete with the functionality of the website.  This website is still under development – I’ll post the link soon.

Football Tailgate Cartoon Characters

I created this detailed cartoon scene of football fans, cheerleaders, and players in a stadium parking lot for Coolbone It, a company that creates really cool looking customized coolers.  The coolers wrap full-color graphics around the entire surface of the cooler, making it a piece of artwork.  This design was an incredible challenge, because there were so many characters to draw, and I had to create the design in a way that could be repeated seamlessly on each end, so it could wrap around he cooler.  I’m very pleased with how this turned out.

Benner-Elementary-Mascot

Mascot design and illustration for Benner Elementary School I created in conjunction with Lake Creative.

Shannon Lake and I were tasked with reinventing their bear mascot into something fun and colorful that the children could identify with.  This was a really fun personal project, because my son Michael just started Kindergarten at this school.  It’s a really cool feeling to walk in the school and see kids here and there wearing the T-Shirt.  Michael loves wearing it, though it’s a couple sizes too big for him!
