I started doing daily doodles for my kid and they eventually evolved into sketches and then recently actual drawings and illustrations. A few people have been asking how to buy copies, so I finally put together a shop where you can get a drawing as a poster, sticker, card, and various other stationary items. Probably best described as fun, cute, and sometimes surreal.
I promised a singing mouse poster, and I've delivered. Here's what I've been doing lately, designed to be presented at Evolution 2018 this week. Do mice with better body condition sing more because they physically can or because they want to? What's leptin, and how does it play a role in body condition scoring? And honestly, why does it matter when singing mice choose to sing and why? [more inside]
I helped make a music video for Winnipeg rapper Employee of the Month. The gimmick for the video is there are gig-posters with the lyrics on them.
I have been designing gig posters, record sleeves, cd covers and other assorted music ephemera since mid-2004. The pieces range from letterpress to offset and silkscreened works. This year I finally got my act together enough to compile nearly all of it into a website featuring nearly a decade's worth of work with new stuff getting produced and added all the time.

I had always been interested in the power and intersection of propaganda and graphic design. And World War II was a fertile era for both. So I started to remix old propaganda posters from the era with contemporary messages about the rancor that is prevalent in American political discourse. I have now published 19 of these posters under the moniker of The Chamomile Tea Party. The two most recent posters: Our Latest No Fly Zone and America's 4th Front: War on the Middle Class. Comments always welcomed.
Last year for Valentine's Day I put up posters around my town with just a picture of a heart, and little tags to pull off, with little hearts. This year I have created a website and I hope you will join the project. There is a poster to download and a gallery to upload pictures and comments.
I have a love for photography, history, architecture and design. There is so much wonderful public domain work available, I choose to curate a bit. [more inside]
For quite a while I've been scanning and uploading various bits of ephemera collected during my time in India. The bulk of it is matchboxes, but there's also a lot of firework wrappers, educational posters, and miscellany. They are beautiful examples of Indian graphic design: strange and colorful, sometimes unintentionally hilarious, sometimes exquisite, and often based on hand-painted pictures. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
