Doctored Stuffing and a Poisoned Apple

The following gallery represents a sampling of recent illustrations, a diverse assemblage of style and tone, created for a variety of clients and individuals.

Fairy Tale Icons

Here are three sample gouache illustrations, commissioned by writer Amy Morgan, for her upcoming Fairy Tale Factory teaching site. When the site is running, I will showcase more of the more than two dozen pieces I created for this clever project.

Pot Recipe Icons

Here are seven cartoon characters I created for the Portland Mercury’s recent pre-Thanksgiving section of pot-themed recipes. Enjoy, however you will!

Yesterday’s Slugger

Here is a gouache illustration created for the birthday of a good friend, one of the most avid baseball fans I know.

A Real Bombshell

Here is the pencil rough, followed by the final art, of a recent commissioned T-shirt design.

Television Times Four

Here are four recent illustrations created for Wm. Steven Humphrey’s popular I Love Television column, appearing weekly in papers like Seattle’s The Stranger and the Portland Mercury.
