Upcoming project – Hunting and fishing stories – sketch

I’ve gradually been working on a great project with my dad collecting his many hunting and fishing stories. I’m doing several spot illustrations for a book we’re putting together; reading, sketching, editing, and layout. He’s had a lot of great input from various editors (Kristin Beebe, Bob Witczak, Ginger Landers, Kathy Williams etc.) and I’m really excited to see where this goes. Here is an unfinished sketch that may go with one of the stories — and DO NOT hold a real gun this way!

There will be more on this project in the future.

Family NIght with Shawn Williams photos





Here are a few photos from Family Night with Shawn Williams in the Iola Public Library this summer; where I talked about graphic novels, showed some thumbnails of page layouts, some original art from Five Pounds & Screaming the graphic novel I self published, did some live sketching in a little drawing 101 demo, and helped everyone create their own comic strips! Fun Night – thanks to all that came out and all the support for it! I love graphic novels and libraries!!

Antique Review magazine – cover design – typography

I recently uncovered these newsprint magazine covers that I designed for Krause Publications in 2003 and 2004. I was pleasantly surprised with my use of typograpy in the blocks of type. (I hope it doesn’t sound too egotistical pointing out my own work so positively?) I just found that I liked the look of parts of these covers from several years ago and I had almost forgotten about them.
