Circling the Square

So, rule no. 1 in Design: Solve the clients problem not your own. It turns out the camp needed the patch to be round:) So here are the two ideas for the round patch, and I think it is actually stronger in some ways. Amazing how we sometimes spend so much effort resisting change when revision and some healthy editing are often just what a design/painting need. Enjoy!

Seeing The Everyday

This is a drawing I finished last night (ok, early this morning, technically:) for the upcoming Spring issue of Seeing the Everyday magazine. The spread is a biography of Grace Rebecca Hartvigsen Thomas, and she was an amazing woman and mother. As always, you can see more about the magazine at: It was fun to do the old photograph look; as always there are things that I hit well, and others that I'll improve next time.

Rebranding a Scout camp

So, once again it's that time of the year when Boy Scout camps all over the country start ordering t-shirts and patches for the summer camp season. This is an idea for a camp out West that a good friend is directing this summer. The top two elongated designs would be for t-shirts, and the bottom two are different ideas for putting the same design into a patch. I'm probably partial to the orange shirt color scheme and the patch on the left with the blue background. Enjoy!
