Here are some holiday illustrations Renee and I did back in our Streetworks Studio days. The Holiday Gift Guide was for a special supplement to Baltimore magazine, and the woodcut illustration was for a holiday card for RV Magazine.

Julia & Justin’s Wedding

It was a lot of fun designing a variety of materials for my son Justin’s nuptials. It also gave Renee a chance to pull out her watercolor brushes again. We ended up finding other uses for some of the “rejected” original invitation design options (hence the mixed branding). It was a fantastic event, although I may be a bit biased…

This is a series of six posters I did for the Hecht Co. department stores one summer. They were line drawings done by hand that were filled with color during the silk screen-printing process (not computer illustrations). Happy first day of summer!

This illustration and cover design was done for the spring issue of a self-promotional newsletter for West + Associates. It even came with a custom-designed packet of seeds glued to the cover.

My beautiful picture

I dug out one of my illustrations from the archive to commemorate opening day for the Nationals and Orioles (a sure sign of spring). This colored pencil drawing was done for a promotional postcard series for Streetworks Studio, our design and illustration business. Let’s hope we can finally put winter behind us once and for all this year. Play ball!

Every year Technica hosts their “Season of Giving” campaign where they encourage their employees to donate to a local charity. I came up with this header design which was used on banners, flyers and our lobby PowerPoint presentation.
