Wine Spectator: Consumers Opinions Uncorked

Wine Spectator

Wine Spectator Layout

I did an illustration for the Oct 15 issue of Wine Spectator for a readers' poll on best wine values.

Gap logo Re-design

Scott Hansen at the iso50 blog had a Gap logo redesign contest

I kept seeing mention that people liked the "old" logo better. But I never heard anyone mention the original logo.

I dug up a photo and copied it.

Appuie sur le Champignon


I was inspired to create a poster based on a phrase my French friend David told me: “Appuies sur le champignon.” It literally means “Step on the mushroom” but translates to “Put the pedal to the metal.” I thought this would look good in a kid’s bedroom, to help them get out of bed in the morning.

Iron Orchard: Band logos


I'm designing a logo for my friend Bill's country band, Iron Orchard. Apparently, an "Iron Orchard" is jargon for rusty machinery, often seen scattered around midwestern farms.

A few T-shirt mockups.
