Last month, I was contacted by the lovely and talented book reviewer, Celesta Hubner, to illustrate a header for her website; Books Before Bed. After some diligent brainstorming, we settled on a design. Three young ladies, taking their late-night reads with them, as they crossover into the dream world. The bed/book sheets feature Celesta's own personal work.
The collaboration was thrilling. Working with others always is. Celesta and I will be continuing our work together. A process which will involve creating a series of stamps for her rating system, along with business cards. If you're interested in reading more, I highly recommend visiting Celesta's website. Her reviews are fantastic.

Upon completion of The Book Smugglers blog header, Thea, Ana and I developed some business cards. Above, arranged from left to right, are; Thea's card|back, Thea and Ana's card|front, and Ana's card|back. The images have been modified to protect each client's personal information.

I loved working with Thea and Ana. They knew exactly what they wanted, had a keen eye for detail and a discerning one for areas of improvement.
And there may be more to follow; bookmarks, business cards, as well as, other merchandise.
If you like, you can read more about the design process on their official website.

Last year, I was contacted by art director/illustrator, Danielle Eckert, and asked to work on a collaborative tattoo design. After some serious brainstorming and refining, the design was completed.
The tattoo itself was inked just recently by the talented Mia Graffam; Mia's shop, The End is Near, is located in Brooklyn, New York.

After combining the sovereign birds into a single image, I wondered what they would look like when treated individually; so, I experimented with a few doily patterns to create a border for each comb.
I was hoping that the lace's delicate quality would both compliment and contrast the stringent nature of these feathery rulers.

Albeit posted late, I want to wish everyone a Happy Chinese New Year! The illustration above is a tribute to this year's lucky little critter - the rabbit. The smell of firecrackers, a warm place and newborn twins.

Introducing the fourth commanding officer, Emperor Han, the Vermilion Flycatcher. This intimidating monarch lead a short-lived regime. However, they were able to assimilate practically every territory that crossed their path, seemingly with nothing more than a steely gaze.

The fourth piece in a series of conceptual combs and the first ruling member of the royal sovereign birds, Emperor Liang. Often, untrustworthy and traitorous, Liang's methods were considered an embarrassment to the dynasty. However, some might argue that this Cockatiel gave song to the 'Golden Age'.
