Future Stationary?

These are some collages I did using some left over pieces from a childrens book I am currently working on. I am either going to use the actual collages for stationary or just get ideas from them. For example, the one with "BOOM" on it gave me the idea to make a pop up card that was a bomb and when you opened it up it says BOOM!. Another idea was to make the envelope the actual card. By making the envolope a bomb and you have to open up the entire envolpe saids "BOOM" inside of it with whatever bad news you have.

For this fallen skier I would like him to be placed in envelope that had an avalanche on it with a few chalets buried in the snow. I was also thinking it would make a cute note paper or large post-its that people put on their refrigerators.

I am not really sure what I would like to do with this little guy. I was thinking about making more strange similar characters with small heads and huge hats or maybe the opposite. A whole family of this little people with big hats and small bodies and small hats and huge bodies. I am not sure though.

Strange, quirky designs I did for the first letters of three chapters in Orlando by Virginia Woolf. The man has an H for a beard, the woman in the middle has a W for her breasts, and the last woman has a T for her nose and eye brows.


Another alphabet I designed using my cut paper style.

Gord Alphabet

An alphabet I designed that is made up of gords. I did this in watercolor.

First Bulletin

So I have volunteered to design the insides of my church's, The Light, bulletin for every Sunday till the end of the year. This is the first one I quickly threw together. Its very simple but I like it. I am hoping to play a lot more for the next one!

The tiniest type face I have ever worked with. Drove me nuts and took me about a month to finish because it kept falling apart. Very delicate and fragile. I think I have a picture of

More water babies

I currently working on filling a small Moleskin water color sketchbook with nothing but water babies. These are some I did to help me relax a while ago.

Colorful Chickens

These were made in Holland on the Dutch letter press and I really hope to continue to illustrate more animal sounds through type.

Just a thought.

A Beetle

While making all of these prints off of the same plate I was trying different engraving processes and inking processes. Some made cleaner prints than others.


Some chandeliers I screenprinted. I was just playing with screenprinting while at Willem de Kooning in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

WUUF! rrrrrrrUF!

Above is a series of prints I did with the letter press at Willem de Kooning Academie. I raised pieces that are used as spaces between letters and words as the fence and then hand pressed the dog sounds.

Hide and Seek

Another collage I did while in Holland of children playing hide and go seek.


Assigned to me while I was studying at Willem de kooning Academie in Rotterdam, Netherlands. The assignment was to come up with an animation about anything, do whatever you want, just show 5-7 illustrations of the story board. I was getting very bored at this point at that school and decided to do some cut paper collages whether the teacher liked it or not. To my relief he did. Anyway here they are. Not exactly my favorite series of collages but here are the beginning collages.
