Album Cover Illustration – Abbey Road

One of two album cover commissions I received in June 2017 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. These two were purchased as he had another child on the way!

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

Astronaut Birthday Invitation

I put together another fun invitation for my son’s 4th birthday. He requested an astronaut theme, so I went all out. The front of the invitation features my son and our dog floating through outer space, and the back was made to look like a NASA mission briefing – complete with a NASA worm logo inspired header. They were a hit with all our family and friends.

Brock University Cube Pals

As Brock University was attending Fan Expo for the first time in 2016, we needed to make a splash. After weighing a few options for giveaways at the show, we decided that papercraft would be a good fit, as it had a low unit cost, and could be shipped easily.

I created a line of three Brock University-inspired Cube Pals — Sir Isaac Brock, Boomer the Badger, and the Schmon Tower. To say they were a hit would be an understatement. We couldn’t keep the piles stocked fast enough at the show, and they are still in high demand at the university by students and staff alike.

Justice League Invitation

My son is obsessed with superheroes, and with his birthday quickly approaching, I figured his party invitations should reflect that. Based heavily on Kevin Maguire’s Justice League covers from the 1980s, I dropped Mikey in between the big 7 of the DC universe — Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter.

I used Blambot’s exceptional comic fonts on the back of the invitation to create a logo for the party, and lay out the event details.

The response from my “client” — Mikey — has been extremely positive, and while it pained me to have Batman smiling, sometimes you need to put your client’s needs above your own.
