Each of the buttons at right takes you to a different area of my work: printed materials, original illustrations, logo designs, digital media work and writing of various types. Each daughter page has thumbnails that open slides with more information about each project. Below you'll find updates on new work in each of these areas.
New in print design
In December 2013, I completed a brochure for Space Dive Productions, a UK-based film/video production company specializing in corporate promotional videos. This was a job I had successfully bid on through PeoplePerHour.com, in which the client wanted a print brochure designed to complement their existing website's design. Using imagery supplied by the client as well as stock photos, I was able to create an A4 booklet-size brochure which they liked and approved for production.
New in illustration
No doubt you've seen old TV shows, movies, records and comic books revamped, redesigned and "re-imagined" lately; I've decided to give one of my old pieces of illustration the same treatment. The original was a drawing used on T-shirts and program covers for a science fiction convention in New Orleans, LA in 1987, following on a design from the previous year by the great Richard Ory. (That's his flying car at lower left in the drawing.) I'm applying all the new digital tools and techniques of today to spruce up what I could once only do with pencil, paper, ink and a ruler. This will take several weeks or more to complete; I'm posting the black-and-white original and "remastered" versions here, updated as I progress to compare.

New in digital design
The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and PEPFAR (the President's Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief) operate an office here in Mbabane, Swaziland. I have been awarded a contract to produce a brochure, letterhead, banner, web pages and other communications materials for them. Check back soon for samples.
I am also still producing a PDF-only newsletter for the United States Embassy here and have been told I can use sample images with text redacted. These will be posted shortly.
This website is still (and will always be) a work in progress. I still plan to design a responsive version and take it live by the end of 2014.
What else is new?
Being an "ex-pat" entails many new experiences and challenges. I am recounting some of them on my LiveJournal page under the heading "African Journal." Most of these entries have been made public and can be viewed by anyone even if not on my friends list; if you have problems viewing them, please let me know using the info on the Contact page.
