Last September I was interviewed on KCHUNG radio on "The Comic Show" down in Chinatown. Here's the archived show if anyone would like to listen. I couldn't believe that anybody would be interested in what I had to say and the work I've done in this unstable industry. But, I was among friends with Mike Kelley and Mark Todd, who were a blast to talk with about this.

This morning I turned in part of my illustrated series on a Biography about Albert Einstein for National Geographic Kids Publishing. Here are 4 samples from the small series. I really love doing illustrations for kids publishing and National Geographic is a dream client to have. Hope you all enjoy them!

I'm in the final stages of completing a logo for a small bakery in Austin that is just starting up called "Three Danes Baking Company" and I'm really excited by the way they're coming out. Here are some examples of the logo in it's home stretch. There will be more on this as it comes to completion and a follow-up when the logo is used in all it's various ways for this company. Coming up with characters that felt a little vintage and cartoonish in that early 1960's mid-century approach was right up my alley and I couldn't more proud of the way these ladies turned out. The client is very happy with them and they were such a pleasure to work for. I cannot express what a dream client they are and I hope the Bakery is a huge success so I can help on other design projects for them in the future.

Check out my first Mardi Gras cover and inside spread of the year that art director Tom Carlson assigned me for The Riverfront Times out of St. Louis. The inside spread is modeled on a board game like "Mystery Date" or "Candyland". This comes complete with flashing lady parts and hurricane drink vomit. What could go wrong?

Right on schedule I'd planned on making some video portfolio teasers, so here's my first one for my work in children's publishing. I'm no Marty Scorcese, but I think it's a cute little teaser. Enjoy!

I'm one of the artists in this show that opens this weekend in Pasadena's Old Town at the Flower Pepper Gallery. All of the art looks incredible. Hope you can make it if you're in the Los Angeles area!

I just completed this series for Nat Geo before the holidays. There might be a second pass on them for editorial reasons but this is most likely the final set they will use to print from. It was fun learning about Sacagawea and although I knew the basics about her as a historical figure I have really gained an appreciation for her through working on this project. Hope I get more from Nat Geo on this. FUN FUN!!

Since I'm working on samples of my work in motion I thought it would be the perfect time to create an animated gif for Halloween. Halloween is my favorite holiday and this year we've had some news items that only add to our list of things to be afraid of, so I worked one of those items into my gif. See if you can find the new reference.
Happy Halloween, y'all!
