A reimagining of the seal and flag of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Had a great time creating this illustration to accompany an article in Selamta magazine. The story is about a program in Rwanda that provides vehicles to farmers in rural areas to help them bring their produce into urban centers. I drew inspiration from Gerd Arntz, Taro Gomi and the lovely Rwandan flag.
Had the opportunity to develop a few album art concepts with songwriter and recording artist Nathan Jay Tingle last year. His forthcoming album layers heavily allusive lyrics with country-western, gospel and folk influences.
Of our ideas, my favorites combined hand-painted lettering and topographic maps of ancient riverbeds.
Recently finished up a series called The Ghosts of North America for a show at a small gallery here in Charlottesville. Inspired by forms found in the prehistoric art of native peoples from the Pacific Northwest, I created illustrations commemorating seven extinct species: Sabertooth Salmon, Giant Polar Bear, Giant Beaver, American Lion, Stag Moose, La Brea Stork and Imperial Mammoth.
For a limited time, 12″ x 12″ giclée prints are available. Printed on archival paper, hand signed and watermarked with the official Ghosts seal in a black wooden frame. Ready to hang for $100. Shoot me a note if you’d like one.
Digging through old boxes and stumbled across this little screen print from my days in JMU’s printmaking studio. Circa 2002.
