Elementary School Polar Bear Mascot Logo Design


Client:

Nome Elementary School

Description:

Elementary school mascot redesign I was commissioned to create of a polar bear for this school in Alaska.

We produced a series of sketches in different styles and positions, and then had the students of the school vote and pick the best direction. Really fun group to work with, and they were thrilled with the result. The graphic was set up as a vector to be easily printable in all sorts of situations.

Magical Fantasy Imaginative Children’s Book Illustrations


Client:

Darius Walker

Description:

Fantasy children’s book I illustrated for author Darius Walker about a family that rides a magical pirate ship bed into a strange world.

This was probably my favorite children’s book to date, because it’s strange and surreal tone really lended itself perfectly to my quirky illustration style. It’s not often that I can illustrate monsters, robots, and pirates in the same book!

Description:
This was a fun illustration I created for a client for their apparel brand that caters to military families. The design, Military Brats, depicts the children of Navy, Marines, Army, and Airforce soldiers emerging from a moving box on a base, coping with the uncertain life of constant upheaval from base to base.

It was a fun challenge to depict each child in a way that captures the aspects of each particular branch of the military.

Client:
Wendy Knuth

The 2nd book in a chidren’s book series about Zombies I illustrated for Wendy Knuth. I’m very proud of this 32 page story featuring a whole family of creepy but fun zombies driving around town and getting into trouble. I had a lot of fun drawing zombies in a very different way than I typically do. Can’t wait to read this to my kids!

Brochure Illustrations for Elsevier

Classroom illustrations I created for a brochure for Elsevier, the leading provider of informational publications for medical and scientific audiences. The client needed a series of illustraitons showing how a new book they were publishing can help teachers engage their students more effectively. The illustration was set up in a way that left a lot of empty areas for text and call-outs to be placed without interfereing with the illustration.

Graphic Wrap for Amusement Park Ride

Graphic Wrap for Amusement Park Ride

Client:

Funland, Rehoboth Beach Delaware

Description:

A graphic wrap I illustrated for a ride at an amusement park. It’s always a privilege to work for Funland in Rehoboth Beach, because I’ve been going there every summer since I was two years old! The ride was an old motion simulator they picked up from an arcade, and it was showing its age. So they hired me to create a giant illustration that transformed the ride into a beach buggy. Illustrations of kids are in the windows on each side of the vehicle. I imagine this will be one of the most unique jobs of my career.
