This is for a new site to support girls who are into sports and music. This was a challenging one since I had to somehow convey the feeling of something rock n roll yet feminine. Having the Z's vary in size creates movement.

Last year I submitted a design to the Strawberry Fields ride but was not selected. This year a committee member contacted me asking if I'd submit a design for the 2010 event. Here's the design I came up with. I hope they like it!

Updated a logo for a hotel somewhere in Zanzibar ( I think). Here's the comps I just sent to them. The blue stacked ovals are my clients idea and represent a thought bubble as in thinking with no limit. "think blue". I also have one to design for a client who has a sport/rock band site and got a call from a nice man referred to me by another client who's business is music.

Sometimes I just need a good photo fast, so I invested in a digital SLR to not only get that quick pic, but to learn to take better photos. Plus, it's fun being creative with lighting, subjects and of course get better vacation pics! Soon, I'll offer photography to my clients!

Here's two logo designs I created for a new client. Still awaiting feedback from them and once the logo is finalized, business cards, brochure and a web site design is next!

MY bro - in - law sent this to me:
"Last week, The Washington Post morons Dana Millibank and Chris Cillizza in this video thought they were doing a clever Beer Summit video for which they got in a lot of trouble from their Editors for suggesting Hillary should drink Mad Bitch. But check out min 3:07 on the video your "Devout Stout!" label is featured. "

Here's another wine label piece I'm working on for a local winery. Still finalizing the font and colors. This is the one color idea.
I really wanted to have a Bigfoot hiding in the trees, oh well.

This is the final illustration (black/red version) for Carlotta Cellars. I'm very happy with this work (and my clients too!) and look forward in seeing it on their wine bottle labels!

Yeah! All is good again!
UGH! My site is down since I was never informed my domain was about to expire. I HOPE... it's up today but if not, it should be early next week.

Here's the latest on the wine logo/illust I'm working on. Here I have hard lined the frame and woman, added some depth by adding black shadowing here and there and hatching to the face.

Three of my logos depicting an animal have been selected for "Animals and Mythology", the second book in the new Master Library series by Rockport publishing. Here's one of the selected!

One of my new clients in the wine industry, asked me to rework their logo design. Currently they are using a black/white photo of a woman looking over to her right which they want to keep in the design. The goal is to have an illustration that is timeless, sophisticated and convey quality. Here is a rough sketch of the chosen design direction and the second, is the start of the vector art. Third, which I worked a bit on today is the start of shading which will end up "scratch board" style. I will add more images of this design as I develop it!

Here are some comps I worked up for my latest client who's opening a new Chiropractors office. He didn't have any specific ideas on what he would like for a logo so, I had him run through a logo reference book and show me the one's that stood out most to him. He likes a variety of styles (which makes it challenging yet fun) so, I did just that. Graphic, simple, text only. I will post the final when it's done!

Let's see... Been working on quite a few projects for some of my long term clients the past few weeks. Can't post the work yet since the new products are not available for the public. Had 3 requested to fix logos for clients who were not satisfied with the designer they chose before. Finalizing some web site design bits and pieces and getting ready to start a new logo design for a new client who obtained my services today!

I was contacted to create some comps for a radio station. Here's what I created and unfortunately the project was cancelled. The second image is a mock up for "the year of the telescope" I hope to hear if I have been awarded the project.
