Tips on Vacationing in Europe This Summer. Recent news about the euro, Uber and baggage size prompt questions from travelers

The image is driven by rope used for her hair, coins for her earrings, maps of Europe and various data pertaining to Europe. Look close enough, you'll even see portions of vintage returned bank checks used.

BILLBOARD ART and HAND-LETTERING COMMISSION






(A throwback project from a few years ago) Several weeks ago, I received a call from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. They were nearing the end of compiling their latest, 2nd floor exhibit featuring all new artifacts, videos and music spanning several decades. From 1965 – present. Their creative team thought I might be a good fit for this campaign and commissioned me to create 3 illustrations. A billboard, an illustrated version of their existing logo, and a vertical and horizontal print ad were rendered. It was a hit upon delivery and continues to be successful campaign for them. Cut paper, collage and mixed media.
