Watchums Book & Kickstarter

For the last few years I’ve been working with my friend Madison to create a children’s book called “What in the World is a Watchum?” The story begins when a child hatches a Watchum from an egg with their love, and the Watchum promises to protect the child through the night from anything that might scare them.

The goal of the book is to help children stay in their bed through the night, with the peace of mind that their Watchum will watch over them. 
In addition to the book, we have been working to get a stuffed toy manufactured, so families could the read through the book together, and children would sleep with the Watchum stuffy at night. 

If you’d like your very own copy of the “What in the World is a Watchum?” book and stuffed animal, you can support our Kickstarter at watchums.com

Instant Niagara Logo

A phenomenal photographer (who just happens to be my wife) needed a logo for an art project/Instagram account she’d been working on. The account — @instant_niagara or instantniagara.com — features photos from all around the Niagara Region, taken on different instant cameras. I took inspiration from the old Polaroid logo and the logo for the Niagara Region when putting this one together, and I’m very happy with the results. Plus, I got to manually kern some Helvetica, which is always a bonus.

JCI Egg Hunt

I was lucky enough to design the JCI St. Catharines #JCIEggHunt colouring page this year!

This page will be handed out to all the kids participating in the Easter egg hunt at Jaycee Gardens Park on April 20, 2019, with the instructions to colour in the Easter items to see how many years Community Care has served Niagara.

The line drawing below is the design that will be handed out, but just for fun I did a couple different coloured versions – take a look below to see them all, and to see the hidden number in the design!

Album Cover Illustration – Parallel Lines

One of two album cover commissions I received in October 2018 from a fan of my first round of illustrations. He had purchased a few when I made my first batch to hang in his first child’s room. Then he commissioned two when he had another child. Then he commissioned these two as he had another child on the way!

The finished designs were printed on canvas, and stretched over a 12″ x 12″ wood frame.
