Robin Layton's dream comes true

I remember when Robin posed the question to me last year ... "do you want to drive across the United States with me?" ... and a month, 9,000 miles, she had shot a book. 

I had no doubt that Robin would find a publisher, and she did ... powerHouse

Her book 'hoop: the american dream™' is available for preorder now on Amazon and Barnes&Noble, the website is up and running. She has started her blog about the adventure. It is a dream come true.

I look at each photo today and it feels like we just standing there shooting it! 

We talked about the website, the art, the fine art, the book, the publisher, the blog ... all of it for a year. Worked toward a goal, and now it is a reality.

Illustrations are us

Feels a little weird to be a one-man art department. I was very, very busy last week ... dashing out 3 illustrations, 2 A&E covers and lots of maps.

Lucky for me, I just did this character in the Skillshare class, so revised and when forth. 

Had to change size at the last minute, and added a Tissue box. ;)

Below, was rejected so I did another idea. Not really happy with either.

Everett Herald

I have a couple of busy weeks at my new part-time gig at the Everett Herald.

Patsy Cline A&E cover. Fun times.

Poster design

I really love designing posters! These are contest submissions or ones I mocked up for fun. I love the Blue Heron (nod to Charley Harper's wonderful geometric artwork), working on that one for this year ... and also making a Loon version.

It was a requirement to use the Etsy cloud logo and I used it to make the gift wrap pattern and the wreath.

Now, if I could just do this for a job. ;)
