So you wanted new work.

So I've been told that I need to put up some new work.

Here's the deal. Im in a rut. Bad. Can't say I have done anything really worth showing... but you guys asked for it so I'll put some stuff up.

Here is a sequence I did for my 8texts book.

Here is a magazine feature article about the Florida House.

Here is a more experimental (if u can call it that) magazine layout for two opposing articles: One written by David Barringer and one by me.

thats all for this semester so far.

Oh and another thing... I picked up a couple ADDY awards... 3 golds 2 silvers... a best in category and a best in show. No big deal.





Here is a work-in-progress for a website in New Media class.

We took a product box with 6 sides and made each side a page of the website.

Here are the comps or storyboard or whatever you want to call it for the 6 page website.

(click. it really looks better bigger.)



Tus Ojos...

Here is a poster I did for advanced type. This version is slightly different than the one that is up in CJ (I was told that my colors were too bland in the original).

Here is the original so you can compare.

Leave me a comment... tell me what you think. Which one do you like?


Student Exhibition Call for Entries

Ok so I know that I said I would have work up the first week of January. Well I lied. I've been busy... sorry.

Here is a poster I was asked to do for the admissions office. It's a direction I usually don't go, style-wise, but I enjoyed the change.


Thanks to Sarah W. for the hookup.



new work....

New work by the end of the week.....

.... i promise!



To Go

For all of you that say I only do posters. :)

Here is a package design for a to-go box.

p.s. > I never said I was any good at package design, but i am pleased enough with this to show it.
