I enjoy the holidays. Like pretty much everyone else on the planet. Over the past few years I’ve worked with OnTrac and Free Range Productions on a variety of vintage card illustrations. I have enjoyed reinterpreting the delivery theme each season. This year, the client requested a truck and driver hauling a christmas tree. So I had fun drawing a juiced-up little delivery truck with nice rounded fenders and a bushy green christmas tree!

I happened upon an amazing headdress through the window of a shop in Downtown Scottsdale 4 years ago. I’ve thought of it on-and-off since then, all the fine details and symbolism. Last fall I was digging through my kid’s Halloween candy stash and I spied the”warrior shooting a star” on a Tootsie pop. That blast-from-the-past sent me over the edge.
Collaboration is something all creative professionals should try. I can’t place enough importance on flexing some creative muscle to keep your skills sharp, but it’s SO HARD to get anything done outside of your day-to-day work with deadlines and meetings…and deadlines.

Young love. An instant connection made across a crowded kitchen counter top. They knew this time around, it was for real. Real yummy that is. Warm, toasty toast with peanut butter and sliced bananas, if you haven’t tried it, you’re missing out. My own hunger pangs aside, I give you retro food characters for Dole!
Netflix is one of those brands I believe in. Having been a Netflix subscriber for just over 10 years now, it was a welcome change to have rental movies sent right to the house instead of fighting over what’s left on the Blockbuster video shelf. Elbowing old ladies for the last copy of Titanic is no longer necessary in this day and age. Ah, the good ol’ days.
Now that online streaming is so prevalent the Netflix viewing experience has just gotten that much better. So when I got the call to create some artwork for the brand I must admit I was excited. The timeline for this project was a doozy. Timelines can always be the Achilles heel of any cool project, but I’m not one to shy away from a challenge…
