Illustration and Graphic Design

My roommates and I just moved apartments into very late into the night on Monday…and during that process I remembered these spot illustrations I did back in my junior year of college for The Campus Clipper. The article offered some very practical advice about finding an apartment in NYC from the perspective of a college student. (I wish I could find the link to it!)

While I am no longer a college student, these drawing still apply to moving and have inspired me to make some moving announcements to send to my family and friends!

A couple weekends ago my old roommate came back and visited NYC, so it was the perfect time to give him a goodbye gift…two months late, of course.

I had the opportunity a couple weeks ago to create two illustrations for a friends article in this season’s MVS magazine.

Tyler (who is featured in the illustrations) is a middle school teacher at the Miami Valley School and wrote a piece about the new large screen TV in the entrance way of the school.

You can read the article and check out the way the illustrations were used on the page here!

Spring is for sketchbook experimentation…and apparently naked blonde ladies.

Here is another illustrated comp for the book A Pinch of Ooh La La. The main character, Abbey, used to be a graffiti artist when she was younger and a big part of the novel was her trying to recapture the passion and so I thought that this would be a really fun, slightly edgier version for the cover.

My friend Emmy is going to Japan for 3 months and she leaves in a few hours! Since one of the things we started doing together after college was weekly yoga sessions followed by beer and Indian food this illustration was (small) going away gift for her!

I watched the movie The Sapphires on Netflix a month or so ago, and while it wasn’t “life-changing” it was a lot of fun, had great music and featured Chris O’Dowd’s hairy legs.

In April my Dad flew me out to spend the weekend with him in Cincinnati I had such a great time hanging out downtown, watching movies on Netflix and eating a lot of good food! I have been meaning to write him a thank you note for awhile now and, last night, I finally decided to illustrate all of the fun activities we did that weekend to send to him.

I saw The Grand Budapest Hotel a couple weeks ago and absolutely loved it and can’t get the imagery out of my head! I decided to practice with my colored pencils and draw some of my memories of the film….I have to say I was kinda surprised how some of them turned out pretty violent.

Last night my friend Leanne who recently got back from New Zealand came into the city and a couple of the girls got together, ate Indian food, drank beer, drew in our sketchbooks and talked for hours.
