Regi the Rhino is FINISHED!

I just finished my first book! Here are two of my favorite pictures that I worked on. If everything works out it should be available toward the end of November. So here I am crossing my fingers that it actually happens that way.

Me and my daughter were scribbling in church today. I saw this in her drawing and decided to try painting it on my phone. I am terrible at drawing with my finger but this turned out to be the only presentable thing I have done on it. Overall I think this was about 20 mins. I love watching Ady, who just turned 2, draw and adapting her images into what I see in them.

Back to Oil

This is my first attempt at oil painting after about a year absence from the medium. This was a 2 hour on site study. I cant wait to finish other projects so I can finish this one up! I painted this on top of ceder mountain, in Emery County, looking over window blind canyon. (I am helpless with names of places, and people too for that matter, so I could be way off.)

P1- Regi the Rhino lived in a tree. P2 - Well it wasn't actually a tree. P3 - It was a Treehouse!

I am almost finished with Regi the Rhino! This book was written by Emily Huntington and should be out sometime in mid November. Ill post the date when things become more concrete. This book has been a blast to work on!

These portraits, from the Jane Austen app, were a great challenge. It was refreshing to work in a new way and style. There are 16 portraits all with their own frame. 

The biggest thing that threw me while working on this app was how time consuming it was to re-size each painting to fit the particular format of the screen. 

I have been really busy this summer. I spent most of my time working on this Jane Austen app. This is the main page of the app.

A school just recently asked me to help with their Anti-Bullying campaign. I left off all the contact information, but this shows the concept.These posters will have a text line as well as a website that students can report unfair treatment to.
I don’t consider myself to be a typographer or a typophile in any way, far from it in fact, but it is nice to experiment with type once in a while.
