Todd Rundgren for Guitar World

This portrait of Todd Rundgren ran in the August issue of Guitar World. The article was about Rundgren's new album of Robert Johnson covers. The AD wanted to play with the idea of putting Rundgren in Johnson's shoes at the Crossroads, an idea I instantly loved. I had a great time working on this. Thanks, Alexis!

Black Badger Book Club

This is a project I did for the Black Badger Book Club. They needed an illustration of an angry badger reading that they could incorporate into a logo, and I was thrilled to oblige. I designed the character, and created three versions, one with a book, one listening to an audiobook, and one on an e-reader, while maintaining the same basic character. This was a very fun job -- thanks, Aaron and Marlee!

Anti-Muslim Inner Circle

These 10 scratchboard portraits of the men and women who put gasoline in the fire of the uprising of anti-Muslim sentiment were commissioned by the Southern Poverty Law Center for their magazine Intelligence Report.

You can read the article online here. Thanks, Sunny and Russell!

Bascom Lodge

This is an illustration of Bascom Lodge at the summit of Mount Greylock, the highest point in Massachusetts near North Adams, MA. This was printed on the programs for the best Hurricane Wedding you could ever imagine. Congratulations, Christa & Sienna!
