“National Park” Styled Posters

I was familiar with both the style, and the poster in question, and had been working on a few WPA-inspired […]

Each tasting generally nets around $8000 to $10,000 for the organization, and recent years have had the benefit of corporate sponsorships to underwrite some of the costs.

While I have been working for Dabney S. Lancaster Community College since November, 2011, I have also been working on a new identity for them almost daily … learning what would work, what the school was all about, what the “life-beat” of the school really was. Finally it all came to a happy conclusion in […]
During a lull in our church service on 9/11/11, I doodled a quick sketch of the following design.

Western Europe Poster
A poster/table-top display created for a conference. This piece incorporates two well-known Western European landmarks over a background “sea of faces” to get viewers to engage in more than just tourism while on travel in Europe. In addition to designing the poster and the use of recognizable landmarks, I also coined the phrase “look beyond […]
A modern retelling of the Coppelia story – set in Manhattan and adding hip-hop and jazz numbers – the West End Academy version of this ballet required a poster with a little of the old and a little of the new … and a little nod to the Godfather film series. Created in Adobe Illustrator […]
