Some illustrations I created for a healthcare organization in Atlanta. I was hired by an agency who was in charge of creating new literature and posters, (to offer to hospitals), explaining the organization's services and products.

As you can see, they came up with a 'Wizard of' Oz theme, (and the large doctor's office posters included a yellow brick road pathway, etc.) They needed cartoon Oz characters that did not look like the characters from the movie, and yet somehow looked more modern that the ones in the original book.

A postcard for a business client, who is moving his family from hot-and-sweaty Austin, Texas to nearly-as-hot-and-just-as-humid Nashville, Tennessee.

The skyline in the background is intended to resemble Nashville's...and the strange building on the left is known locally as the "Batman building", due to its pointy bat ear--like towers. (I don't get to draw many armadillos, so this was a fun diversion for that alone.)

Some characters I'm currently creating for a technology business directory website. (The main company is based in Pittsburgh, but has services and websites serving other cities throughout the U.S.).

The client wants to have the characters updated periodically with various activities pertaining to seasons, holidays, etc., much like Yahoo and Google do, (though of course it would not be as detailed.) There will also be opportunity for .gif animations of the figures.

A different type of job than usual, but it has been fun.
