I had a few people ask me if I died, but that would have been way too emo. Here's what was going on: First, I got a bunch of work, most of which I am displaying here. In addition to the work here I did a couple of book covers for Scholastic. The designer is sending me copies with the title and everything on them so I can display them here. Please be patient. Then, I spent a couple of days chaperoning Boy Scout camp. (Some of you know that I am a Mormon. I have been asked to lead/teach the teenage boys in my ward/congregation. Anyway, that's why I was at camp.) After that I visited my family for my cousin Jimmy's wedding. (Even though I don't drink, it's awesome to order as many Roy Rogers as I want from the bar.) As soon as we came back we had to start preparations to move down the street. We rent from my wife's grandfather and he has a rental house that is one bedroom larger than the house we were in, so we decided to move into the bigger one. The new place needed a lot of painting, cleaning and fixing (thanks Thompsons, Devin and my awesome family.) So we had that plus the packing, moving and cleaning up of the old place. So now we are moved into the new place. My office is still full of boxes but the extra space is way better already.
So, here are the things I worked on:
Spot for Good Housekeeping. The article is about which
technological gadgets are appropriate for children as they grow up.
This is a small illustration for The Friend magazine.
For the "events" section of The Pitch. I really liked messing around with the halftone dots. I'm not sure which color scheme was actually printed.
Panels from a story for Nelson Education. The story is supposed to be totally over the top and this part covers much of the chaos.
For an article in Insight magazine about the dietary practices of 7th Day Adventists (Insight is an Adventist magazine for teens).
I can't wait to show the book covers. Thanks to some great critiques from friends and family, I think they turned out really great. I am working on the third one right now.
