Barcade NO ROWDIES! Tee-Shirt

 My latest tee-shirt design for Barcade is one I've been pushing for years! Pinty the Talking Beer makes his merch debut on this NO ROWDIES! tee. The original design featured Pinty's pal, Tenny (the Talking Ten-Ounce Pour), who is the more stern of the duo, but the owners wanted Pinty, so it got redone (sorry, Tenny). They also felt my hand-drawn logo would work better than the official corporate logo on this design. You can get this shirt at any Barcade location or online at their merch store

Screaming Skull pin

 My latest collaboration with Kanibal & Co. in Jersey City, NJ is this new Screaming Skull enamel pin! Order it online here or go to the store and check out an amazing selection of gifts, apparel, jewelry and art by local artists and more. Pictured is the final design along with a few rejected early ideas (the "JC" being nixed because apparently a lot of people associate those initials with something else!

Walking and Rolling to School with Buster the Bus

My friend, the multi-talented Kayt Hester pulls a day gig at the Hudson Transportation Management Association in New Jersey where she works in pedestrian safety for the younglings. She wrote a book for the kids starring the TMA's mascot, Buster the Bus (one of a number of Buster Buses across the land) and asked me to illustrate it.  Unfortunately, WALKING AND ROLLING TO SCHOOL WITH BUSTER THE BUS is currently only available to Hudson County school children, but it may be given a wider distribution at some point. Here's a selection of pages from the book along with the poster I did to promote it and a photo of the writer and artist in the wild (or, at a bar!). 












Jersey City Flippers poster

This has nothing to do with real estate. Here's a poster done for the New Jersey pinball league, the Jersey City Flippers!

Fawnwood

 This commission is outside of my normal purview, but it was also a very personal piece. My aunt (mother's sister) and uncle built this beautiful house in 1979 in the woods and spent the next forty years making it a warm and inviting home for their own family and many, many visitors. In January of 2020, they moved out of the house into a smaller retirement community (which they have already made their own, because that's what they do). For my uncle's birthday, my aunt asked me to collaborate with her on a comic strip style ode to the house they (and I) loved so much. To call this a labor of love is putting it mildly.

Daughter of the '70s DENIM placeholder

 The Instagram page, Daughter of the '70s (follow it!) asked me to do a placeholder for their current tribute to all things blue jeans of the Me Decade. Inspired by the Wrangler logo of the era, this has special resonance to me for numerous reasons that I shall not go into here.
