Muse and Cicada Magazine

The magazines came this week!!  The top four images are the Muse illustrations for the carrier pigeon article.  The bottom image is the cover and back cover for the September issue of Cicada magazine.  The theme was helping hands.  Both were really great assignments!

The Race to Home

I was really lucky with my first freelance assignment: it was a great article with a fun layout for an art director, John Sandford, who gives his illustrators a lot freedom and support.  These four illustrations will run along the bottom of the article, The Race to Home, in the September issue of Muse magazine.  The story is about carrier pigeons and how they have been used throughout history.  I was asked to illustrate this progression for the 6-page article.  I love illustrating for children and hope to get more work like this in the future :)

My poor neglected blog...  It's about time for an update.  I've been very busy this summer with my internship and other projects (that I can't show until later :) )  Overall, it has been a really fun summer: exploring Cleveland, meeting new people, receiving a real paycheck... I've also been enjoying my new running route, and I'd thought I'd share...

The stairs may be a slight exaggeration...
