three years and still unpacking

Well, perhaps we’re not quite at three years here, but it’s pretty darn close. And I just pulled the black cabinet our of the storage room.  Maybe this will make our next move easier, as we’ll still have some boxes packed?

I’m pretty excited about this newest series.  It’s the third series that I’ve been able to design and I finally feel like I’ve got a good grasp on the process.  And the lack of anxiety has really made this series a joy to work on.  I just received the design approval for the first book from the publisher and art director, so I thought I’d celebrate with a little sneak preview. Oddly enough, the index/glossary/back matter page is usually my favorite to design.  And here is the backmatter page for this newest book (you’ll have to excuse the watermark — I won’t receive the final images for a while):


Happy Birthday, Marine Corps!

My goal for this year was to get an online portfolio up and running.  Getting the motivation to do so has proved harder than planned, and I’m just now getting around to photographing some of my pieces. Getting the lighting correct is harder than I thought it would be.  Darn.
