Flea market
Man oh man do I love flea markets, yard sales, and junk shops. So much so that I designed my newest postcard around that idea, and sent it to like 150 different art directors and editors. Hope it brings some fun new assignments my way!

Invoices
I have less to say about invoices than I did about  income-tracking spreadsheets , but I did re-design my invoice template this year, and since I'm reasonably happy with it I figured I might as well share that here as well: This is pretty straightforward, I...

Griffin(s)
Got a weirdly specific request in my recent portfolio review: to include more drawings of mythical/fantasy creatures: dragons, unicorns, etc. To that end, here are some designs for a possible griffin character.

Back to school
I recently drew another cover for my hometown alt newsweekly, the Pittsburgh City Paper. Since I work (partly) digitally, I was able to submit the final file with several layers separated in Photoshop. This allowed the art director (the always superb Lisa C...
