- The Little Book of Big Monsters
- The first thing I created when I got the hang of Illustrator was a little purple monster. Ever since I have been somewhat preoccupied with vector monsters. This book is a practice in exactly that. The idea is centered around a children's book that is somewhat of a field guide to your typical fears as a kid. Each monster is accompanied by it's name in Latin, a brief description and a list of their favorite foods and hobbies.
4 posters from a series based on the recent remake of True Grit. Being a huge fan of westerns, I wanted to make a tribute series to a western I really enjoyed. Each poster was built using a mixture of Illustrator and Photoshop.Graphic Design, vector, Typography2010
Every year the Tubman organization holds a fundraiser in Minneapolis. I was given the opportunity to design all of the elements for this years event. Over the course of several weeks I developed "characters" to tell a simple story through print and web. Working with web developers John Brackett and Joe Carey we were able to tell this story in 5 clicks along the bottom of the page.
This Years theme was construction. I designed everything with light hearted specificity, down to the stitching on each chicken's overalls.
