Here's a piece I did recently- I like doing underwater scenes...


a few simple animal designs

baby einstein

Here's another spot illustration I did using a more limited color palette.


another design from a few years back...


dinosaur card

I did these for a greeting card a long time ago. I don't really work in this style anymore but I just thought I'd post them anyway.

animal stickers

This is a sticker sheet I did about a year ago.

ice cream man

Another piece I did recently. The kid on the scooter is a detail of the larger scene.


monster heads

I did these crazy monster heads for Halloween a while back.

kids with treats

Here's a couple of spot illustrations I did recently, using a more limited color palette.


nelson desk clocks

Over the years, I have amassed a large collection of vintage clocks designed by George Nelson in the 40's, 50's and 60's. This is a little piece I did using a few of them as my inspiration. I'm thinking of eventually doing this as a large painting.

kangaroos and giraffes

some mother's day cards I designed a while back...


c'mon, please can we get a puppy?

This is something I did as a self promotional piece. I wanted to make sure the focus stayed on the kid and the puppies, yet still show the parents' reaction in the background. I think it came out pretty close to how I'd imagined it.


Here's a design I did recently for a music card- it's shown here without the lettering. When you open it, it plays the song Day-O by Harry Belafonte. It's currently available at Target Stores.

monkeys and cats

Here are a couple of card designs I did for Valentine's Day. I believe they were sold at Target.

little leo

Here's a lion I did for a kid's greeting card.

Here he is again on an ark with a bunch of other animals. This is also a kids' card.Font size


the owl and the pussycat

Growing up, I always thought the the Owl and the PussyCat was a really strange poem. It was written by Edward Lear in 1871, and I thought it would be fun to do an illustration depicting this odd couple in a book cover format. I guess later on the author wrote a sequel to the poem but he died before he finished it. It's called The Children of the Owl and the PussyCat and it starts out describing the kids that are half cat, half bird- maybe I'll illustrate that one sometime...creepy.

cowboy kid

This is an illustration I did recently. I don't know why I put the kid on a bull instead of a horse.  I guess I just felt like drawing a bull.

robot factory

Okay, I know this is an older post but I've been out of town and this fits this weeks Illustration Friday topic "modify". Who knew all it takes to modify the behavior of this particular robot model is just your standard screwdriver?

mambo for cats

The title of my blog and the illustration I did for it, is a tribute to one of my favorite illustrators, Jim Flora. I found this Mambo for Cats album at a thrift store about twenty years ago. At the time, I had no idea who did it and I hadn't yet heard of Flora-I just knew it was a great image. Since then, a lot has been published about the guy and he's finally getting the recognition he deserves.
