Here's a piece I've been working on for some time... and today it was finally approved. This final version is quite a bit different from the original version. It evolved in each revision stage. A heavily-revised project usually doesn't end up being a portfolio piece, but this one is an exception... partly due to the competent art direction from Design Center's Scott Di Girolamo.

This image will wrap around the front cover and onto the inside front cover.

Something different

I've noticed that I haven't published a blog in over a month. January has been a busy month with a lot of work from Target. I've been helping to create various elements for their Speed Racer and Hulk movie promotions... which I can't show until after the movies come out later this year. While we wait, here's a recent project that has been fun.

I was asked recently to create some illustrations with icons of recyclable items for a publication promoting Dakota County's recycling program. The initial cover image (above) was the first hurdle. Once we got approval on this image, I moved onto the chapter illustrations below which focus on categories of recycling. Scott Shore, owner of Lure Design ( gave me some great art direction and will finish the pages with his graphic design details.
