New Illustration – The Hunters and the Hunted. I would tread lightly in these woods… Thanks to the Serial Podcast, I was able to sit down and knock this one out fairly quickly.

I reverted back to an old familiar technique here, using graphite on rag paper with digital color. Unintentionally, the color palette is hauntingly similar to the spooky “What Was I Scared of” Dr. Suess book! I think that one left a lasting impression on me as a kid. Nightmares of floating pants… (see below).

“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.” – Albert Einstein.

Just finished this illustration for my spring promotional mailer. It’s based off the mysterious phenomenon called the Colony Collapse Disorder – in which researchers estimate that nearly one-third of all honeybee colonies in the country have disappeared. The cause of their disappearance is still unclear, though scientists are looking to pathogens, pesticides, and beekeeping practices as a potential strain on their fragile immune systems. Honeybees are essential to our ecosystem and responsible for nearly a third of our food supply including almonds, avocados, broccoli, cherries and strawberries to name a few. Read more about it here.

A stack of printed postcards. labels, and stamps (I think you know where I’m going with this). I just received my postcards in mail and am gearing up the big summer promotional mailing. Art directors, creatives, and designers, make room for the Ladies in Red!

If you’re curious, I order my postcards from Modern Postcard and am consistently pleased with the quality. There’s always a moment of panic when they send you the “digital proof” (which is just a layout preview) and you see your color and contrast out of whack. In my experience, the proof tends to look really dark and saturated on-screen, but the printed postcards always turn out beautifully.
