CD Design

Every once in a while I get to use the old designer chops, and it always feels very special to me. After all, that's what I originally went to school for.

Faith Gibson is an American Jazz Singer currently living in Germany, and I had the pleasure to design and illustrate her new CD, Big Moon. You can find out more about Faith and her music on her website.

SYNCOPATED in stores

Syncopated is a beautifully edited Anthology of Non-Fiction Picto Essays featuring some really cool people, I'm very fortunate to be a part of this book. Editor Brendan Burford originally self-published 3 volumes, before it got picked up by Random House / Villard and this volume is sort of a relaunch, but also a seemless continuation. It is much thicker than all other previous issues though, and has a number of great new contributors. As you can see above and below, my humble contribution is about Coney Island.

The book has already received a *Starred Review from Booklist, and another great review from Publishers Weekly.

You can order Syncopated here and also read some of the reviews. Of course you can also ask for it at any book store, they should be able to order it if it's not in stock.
