I had the opportunity to collaborate with Red Shovel Landscaping on their website illustrations. With photo reference of the Red Shovel staff, I illustrated this header image.
Paul Szauter is a founding member of Equiseq, a gene sequencing service for horses, and has helped many of my illustration students polish their portfolio presentations. As a way to say “Thank You” I visualized him as the sorcerer of gene sequencing. Thanks, Paul!
Alana Rae Garcia of Al Does Art pitched her new comic book series “The Styx” at 1 Million Cups here in Albuquerque. I had the honor of working with Alana as she produced the first issue of this inspired project. “The Styx” tackles the subject of death in a very human way with fantastic heroes and villains in a fantastic dreamscape. It’s reminiscent of “What Dreams May Come” meets “Alice in Wonderland”. Follow Al Does Art on Facebook to order issues of “The Styx.”
I had the tremendous opportunity to design the promotional material for the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce and their 2017 Gala. Every year, the event known as La Noche Encantada incorporates a different theme. This year, they featured Albuquerque in the theme “Rich in the Extraordinary”. I designed a couple comps but ultimately the über talented Craig Berry set the aesthetic tone with his invitation design. I then designed the tickets, program, outdoor boards, and print ads for both the gala and the after party.
For the second year in a row, I had the chance to participate in Star Wars Day at the Loma Colorado Library in Rio Rancho as a caricature artist! I had a great time drawing Star Wars themed caricatures alongside fellow caricature artists Alana Rae Garcia and Derek B. Lee. It was a great time at a great library that features a dog reading group, a manga club and a Lego club–check ’em out!
