1. Here’s a new cover for the January 2014 issue of Baltimore Magazine. The cover is for their feature story “101 Reasons to Love Baltimore Right Now”. It was a lot of fun ringing in the New Year on this kind of an illustration that is all about joy and enthusiasm for one of my favorite cities. The cover is an homage to some of the best things about Baltimore from their awesome topiary gardens and crab sandwiches to playing golf all year round while sipping on a snowball. Below is a little process break down showing the journey from sketch to cover final. Thanks to AD Amanda White-Iseli for the assignment. 

     

  2. Here’s a cover I did this past October for REP Magazine. It was a pretty quick turn aound with a simple idea. Bold, strong type in a clean/minimal environment. Every once in a while a project like that can be very refreshing as most of my illustrations tend to be complex and dense. Thanks to CD Sean Barrow for the assignment.

  4. I have some new illustrations in the October 2013 issue of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance for an article about Obamacare and specifically Health Care Exchanges. In addition to the feature opener, I also illustrated some spots. I’ve posted some early sketches as well to show some process. The idea was to make a little neighborhood with people gathering to check out the new Health Care Exchanges.  I also did spots of different groups of people affected by the new health care reforms - folks with pre-existing conditions, early retirees, and young adults. I was watching Dexter while making the spots and paid homage to “Angel Batista” with the early retiree, one of my favorite characters from the show. Thanks to Yajaira Lockhart for the assignment.
