Lip Think Press…

I had the honor of creating two illustrative logos for the California-based writer/musician James Clark for his publishing company Lip Think Press. Not considering myself a “graphic designer”, I’m not normally one to take on a logo design project; however James assured me that he was looking for something that felt more like a vintage illustration than a sleek modern vector design – now, that I could handle! Not only did we come up with two great logos – one for larger display and one for smaller uses such as comic logos and business cards – but it was a lot of fun. Of course fun and creativity are what James Clark and Lip Think Press seem to be all about – please check him out here.

Help save a veteran’s life…

Each day, on average, 22 veteran’s of our military commit suicide. That’s tragically astounding, and we can help to prevent these deaths! Mission 22 is an organization set up to help those men and women that have served in the U.S. military and are struggling with mental issues. 

I was honored to be asked to design this poster and will also be performing a half-hour set of original music at the event itself. If you’re in the Chicago area, please come out and support!

Look, Mom, I’m on TV!!! Kinda…

On a bus ride on for this past Christmas, I got a random email from a producer for the CNBC show American Greed. She had worked at an ad agency in Chicago that I’d done some work for back when I first started freelancing. She’d tracked me down and was now wondering if I could create some comic book art to help tell the tragic story of Homer Marciniak, an elderly man who had his vintage comic book collection stolen and ended up dying as a result of the trauma. I jumped at the chance and below are my contributions to the episode.

I’d like to thank all the wonderful and talented folks at Kurtis Productions for making this awesome experience possible! I also highly encourage you to check out American Greed on CNBC on Mondays at 10e/9c.
