This month’s article for ARTiculate: Real&Clear talks about spring cleaning. Diana Dresser talks about the fact that spring cleaning is not just for our homes, but also important for all aspects of our lives, including presentation habits. For some reason, spring cleaning always thinks of advertising from the 1950′s. Maybe I associate spring cleaning with housewives, or maybe it just has a nostalgic feel to me. To illustrate Diana’s article, I decided to mimic that nostalgic feel, while also trying to add some whimsy. The result, I think, is classic and fun. What do you think? Read More »

These are just a few of about 25 ads that I was commissioned to create for a dance school’s upcoming show. The ads are a part of the show program book. I used Photoshop for this entire project. Ads ranged from full page, half page and quarter page, full color to grayscale. Elements like photos and wording are submitted by the purchaser, and I was tasked with layout, design elements, and any fixes that might be needed. More examples of this work are available upon request.

I’ve been in the process of working on a new logo for my awesome mom’s computer programming and services company for about the last year. We’re both so busy with other projects that this keeps being shelved for another day. I thought it might be fun to post up some of my concepts, however, so here goes: Read More »
The newest newsletter graphic for ARTiculate: Real & Clear- this one is about the importance of connecting when we present or speak to people, instead of just worrying about perfection in our presentation skills.

The next in the series of graphic illustrations that I’ve created for ARTiculate: Real&Clear‘s blog posts, this image might be my favorite to date. We went a different direction on this graphic- more of a “mixed-media, art and poetry book” illustration style. The article that this was made for, called “Let’s Be Honest: Listening to Our Voice Can Keep It Real” by guest blogger Alexandra O’Connell, is deeply rooted in the idea that in order to really “find our voice” we have to be accepting of honesty. Alex’ writing oozes imagery, which made it relatively easy to come up with some ideas for the illustration, but I wanted to push the boundaries a little bit more and start putting a little more “ART” into these graphics for ARTiculate.

I was tasked with creating a graphic from the phrase “Love the voice.” While some pieces of ideas were thrown about, this was the main piece of information from which to formulate my design.
