Society6 Now On View Artist Feature
I was recently asked to be featured in an article on the Socity6 blog for part of their ongoing Now On View artist series. Simply stated, Now On View celebrates and showcases the artists of Society6 and their work. It allows other artists to get to know them—and then get lost in their gallery. In the interview, Society6 asked me questions about being a graphic designer and my 'Wild' series of artwork. Here is the link to the article and some of the artwork from my series below. You can also purchase prints & more of the artwork through the link.

Givingli Greeting Cards
Free & Above
I was recently asked to letter a sticker design for Free and Above using the phrase "Beautiful You Are." Tony Cox, the founder of Free and Above, wanted to start a movement that aims to give hope to individuals dealing with with mental illness. You can purchase tshirts, stickers, and more to support mental health awareness on Free and Above.
Tony recentely has had a heavy heart for the LGBTQ community and wanted to bring the "Beautiful You Are" phrase to life. These are his words regarding the meaning behind the phrase: "Scars. Stretch Marks. Pounds. Thigh gap. People telling you you're ugly. Remember how far you've come. Love your skin. Embrace everything thickness or pound. Do not let people tear you down and believe you're ugly. You're not. Beautiful you are."
The Motorcycle Song
I was commissioned to create a custom illustration based on "The Motorcycle Song" by Arlo Guthrie.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Lettering & illustrations created for GTB, for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The designs were used for GTB social posts, media, & a Wall of Hope for people to post a ribbon for a loved one, or to leave a message of hope.
Four other designers and myself took GTB agency's core competencies and created a unique lettered poster of each word. We made 4 color screen prints of each artwork, screen printed by Jason Smith, @LurkandDestroy. My word was "curious." Our GTB Competencies Lettering won a 2018 Graphic Design USA award for best graphic design.
Detroit Auto Show
The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit announced that starting in 2020 the show would make a transformational move to the summer and will start the week of June 8th. In order to make this announcement to the public, NAIAS asked the production team at GTB to create a video that would help envision the event. I was tasked with illustrating the future Detroit Auto Show highlights over video footage of Detroit. The video went viral shortly after being released with lots of excitement for the future Detroit Auto Show. Below are some still shots of some of the scenes I illustrated. You can view the entire video on the NAIAS site here.
The footage was filmed by the GTB video production team, animated by Julie Craft & edited by Nicholas Maher.
