I made these two years ago for a company that wanted a polygonal tree logo. (Really.) Sadly, the client decided not to use my work. (Actually, I think the mark they decided on is more appropriate; all type.) But this afternoon while looking through my archives, I found the image, put a cool texture (which I made*) on the trees, and now I present them to you!

* (I love parentheses. And asterisks.)

Plan 59

While doing some visual research for an illustration, I ran across this great site called Plan59. It's an online museum and gift shop of mid-century American illustration. What a gem! Beware: Looking through all the images on this site can be a huge time sucker.

Paper Sample Doodles

Tonight as I stewed over other projects, I noticed some stray paper swatches* at my desk. The swatches looked a bit underdressed, so I embellished them with a few doodles. The squares are each 2" x 2". Random, yes, but kinda fun.

* (Just like paint companies provide swatch books or color chips for their paints, paper companies provide swatch books for their papers.)

Illustration Friday - Cultivate

Another quick sketch. I thought it would be fun to show a wrinkly grandma watering wrinkly flowers.

Random Sketches

I drew these while watching a movie. For the life of me I can't remember what movie.
