My friend (and wife) Laura likes handmade things, and needed a new planner for 2011. So I drew and designed the pages, and our friend Kim chose some beautiful handmade paper, then crafted the binding and covers to create this unique planner.
A poster for a George Fox University event celebrating the life and work of William Stafford, who was a poet laureate and peacemaker. I tried a version illustrating the featured documentary "Every War Has Two Losers" (below), but it got too busy. Plus wasn't room for the large amount of text that went on the poster.
I just got married to Laura Dunn! I did a somewhat casual handlettered invitation, since we were having a small, somewhat casual wedding. Our beautiful rings were made by Patrick Burt, and Joel Bock took some great photos for us. And we lived happily ever after...
This is the 20th issue of Geez magazine, so we're celebrating our 5th anniversary. The cover features a photo by Joel Bock. This issue looks at the pros and cons (and gray areas) of technology on relationships, and life in general.
Photos of signs I took years ago in Scotland and England. Lots of interesting typography and handlettering there. The one of the old cigarette machine appears to read "ever open kids" but actually reads "ever open kiosk."
Geez is celebrating 5 years with the upcoming 20th issue, and there's a party, if you happen to be in Winnipeg. This poster offers a sneak peek of cover girl Laura Dunn, photographed by Joel Bock. I wish I could go to the celebration...
Book cover I designed for a textbook for the Liberal Arts and Critical Issues senior class at George Fox University. The book includes chapters by various George Fox professors, as well as excerpts by writers such as Wendell Berry, Jim Wallis and John Stott.
Geez 19, the wild issue, features an excerpt from Crow Planet, a book by Lyanda Lynn Haupt, as well as factoids ("crow secrets") about crows scattered throughout the magazine. I did a few drawings of crows to accompany to excerpt and the crow secrets.
The 19th issue of Geez Magazine, the wild issue, is out; here are a some sample spreads. Thanks to Joel Bock for photo assistance of the cover collage.

Poster/ad/image for Geez magazine's civil disobedience essay contest. Anyone can enter, but college and high school students are especially encouraged to write. Thanks to Laura for being my civilly disobedient model.
At Twin Rocks Tween camp this year the campers were going to tie-dye their t-shirts. So I did a design to make it a little more fun: we printed white on a white shirt. It wasn't quite invisible before dying, but close. The ink resists the dye, so the design shows up after the shirt is dyed. Pretty cool, huh?
A few camper's shirts shown below.
