Recently completed project - Surly Sheep

I recently finished this logo design project for Surly Sheep.  This was a fun one.  And I got to do hand lettering, which is always a hoot.

Still Tweaking

Ever trying to refine my style... I made some subtle changes to this one.  I added some shading in colored pencil and graphite to give it a little more depth and texture.  I think I like it better.  The old version is here.

Illustration Friday - Hitched

Wow! Participating in Illustration Friday for two weeks in a row!  Shocking! This is just a pencil sketch colored in Photoshop... and a few character studies for the same girl.  There's something about drawing angry children that I find very entertaining.

Website update

Just a note to say that I recently updated my website with all my new portfolio pieces.

Recently completed project - Miss Maureen

I recently finished this illustration project for Miss Maureen, an Australian musician who is releasing her debut album of children's music.  It was a really fun project to work on, not only because I got to draw a mermaid, but also because I got to have Skype meetings with them and learn all sorts of bizarre Australian cultural tidbits.  I illustrated 20 characters, one for each song, as well as a few other incidental illustrations and an album cover.

Here are just a few of my favorite images, and the album cover I designed for them.  Website design and logo design was done by Marke.  All 20 of the character images can be seen at
