Artist Tascha Parkinson is exactly like her work: lighthearted, colorful, and quirky. I had the pleasure of working with her on a preschool alphabet game called Grandma's Trunk.
The project consisted of a linen textured trunk illustrated both inside and out, along with one card for every letter of the alphabet. Former preschool teacher Marcia Gresko created the game based on a popular childrenâs story. In the tale, children take turns packing grandma's trunk for a world trip.

Maker Pro Book Cover
This great book of essays by beginning and pro makers was in need of a cover. The brief required that I somehow convey the breadth of experience levels represented within the book, while focusing on "beginnings." I styled and shot tools and materials reminiscent of the making process and used a woodburner to inscribe a very rough-hewn "MAKER" in caps. I then composited the typography after some minor retouching.
