Out of a pool of well-known names in the industry, I was pleased to be chosen to be the illustrator for the 2011 IRS small business calendar. This was the cover illustration. The designer chose my style, with its bright colors and bold shapes, because the theme was sports.  She felt it had an “everyman” kind of appeal and would be approachable to everyone.

Nothing makes me happier than an illustrated map project. This map was commissioned for the Official Washington DC Visitor’s Guide. They wanted to show a walking tour, things that a tourist can visit in one day.

I was commissioned by Imagezoo to create a series called
“Festivals” and this was for: Kite festivals.

Each scene was originally drawn separately but eventually I combined them
into one illustration. I like to use bright colors and white shapes. I
wanted to keep a youthful vibe for this “kids and technology”
illustration.
