SevenEightFive Magazine features a local artist on the cover of every issue. I'm honored to be featured this time around. My illustration pairs up with an article by my good friend Matt Porubsky about a string of small-town restaurants on the Southern edge of Topeka, Kansas. This collage is also part of my "Dessert and Coffee" series.

I was just commissioned to do this illustration promoting a book fair in Lawrence, KS. Of course I jump at any chance I have to illustrate a unicorn. Or a robot. Or a hairy creature who loves to read. I'll post the final design when it becomes available.
I'm also posting the original 'reader' who was not called back after his first audition.
Some of you may know I serve on the board of directors at the Mulvane Art Museum. This year it has been my pleasure to handle all of the promotion associated with the annual Mulvane Art Fair hosted on the Washburn University Campus. I was directed to take a 'Picasso-esque' angle, so I created this collage of a modern art shopper just at that "AHA!" moment before her big purchase. I also designed all the materials. It is always cool to be able to illustrate AND design for a big project like this. Especially for a control freak. But I'm only a control freak when it comes to preserving a brand image. LOL.
