Graphic Design Samples 2: Children’s Book

Hello again,

I’ve been meaning to post these for a while now. I’m not sure if I told you, but I worked on layout and graphic design for a children’s book. The book was written by a skilled actress and teacher who works with young children. She came up with the idea for a travel book for kids and adults that is geared towards traveling via airplane (although the activities could easily be modified to work for land or sea travel). From activities to complete alone or with a group, this book will surely keep even the most active travelers at bay.

This was a fun and challenging project. The book ended up being about 100 pages and includes 101 activities to do while traveling. Each page was designed by yours truly. Once my copy of the book arrives, I’ll  be sure to post more pictures.  *I did not illustrate this book, the illustrations were done by another person. I did create all of the the layouts and page designs. If you are interested in picking up a copy of the book, visit this link. :-)

I’ve heard that the author is planning on making a Spanish Language version of the book. Stay tuned for more information on that project and for some photographs of the book.

Thanks for lookin’! -P

Robot Painting

This post’s feature: Yet another painting on wood!

This piece was the first one that I started (of the paintings on wood), but I did not finish it right away. I always find it best to work on a few projects at once…

This is a painting on heavier/thicker wood than the Lovebirds Painting.

If you didn’t notice…he’s a cowboy robot. He even has a revolver, sheriff’s badge, and spurs. He’s a pretty cool guy. I am really quite pleased with how this piece came out. I think that the bright colors of the robot and his boxiness pair very well with the organic shapes and warmth of the wood.

Owl Clock Painting

Here is the newest painting that I’ve created for the piece riot art show! This one is based off of a clock that my first boss used to have. I always loved looking at that clock.

I am thinking I may even turn it into a real clock if I have the time!
