Happy Valentine's Day

"The Tallest Doll in New York City" by Maria Dahvana Headley is a wonderful short story for Tor.com about the Chrysler Building falling in love. It was a pleasure to work with Art Director Irene Gallo on such an imaginative tale. 

It was a fun challenge to make the skyline simultaneously sexy and subtle. I've included the sketches for extra sauciness.

Shifting to a New Way

For Plansponsor Magazine. The article was about companies shifting to defined contribution retirement plans. The art director, SooJin Buzelli, gave me the helpful metaphors of "shifting to a new way" and "going from one world to another". I've attached the sketches to share a sense of my creative process. 

Hats Off to Dr. Seuss!

An illustration for Atlanta Magazine about a nationally touring show of Dr. Seuss's personal hat collection.

Ten Things Broadway Won't Tell You

For the Wall Street Journal and Marketplace.com. The original had the words "Smash Hit!" written across the poster. This is a variation with a pasted black banner. I've included the sketches to show some of the other concepts I was working with. 

Mock Turtle Soup

For Cincinnati Magazine's Dr. Know column. A reader asks if mock turtle soup is of English or German heritage.
