Here’s a new piece I just finished for Electronic House magazine. It’s a fun little illustration for the PLAY section of the publication. The creative director is Alyssa Bradbury.
‘How’d you do that?’ is a common response when someone sees my logo lettering samples for the first time. It seems in this modern world with thousands of fonts available to anyone on a computer, we’ve lost some of the ‘old school’ skills of hand work. And it seems to be coming back.
One of the many types of illustration work I am getting more calls for is for information graphics. Not just icons, but technical illustration either for instruction manuals, posters or labels.

Some of you logo design fans have probably already scoped out the new Logo Lounge 4 (Rockport Publishers). This is the latest in the Logo Lounge series of design books—and I might add, every one of them is excellent. The level of work is superior and the logo design is nothing short of inspirational.
