Champion of the NAWCC—Logo and Illustration

This illustration was an interesting challenge. Those who pledge and commit to pay $10,000 a year for 10 years to the NAWCC are recognized as a Champion of the NAWCC and the NAWCC community. My approach to creating a logo for this distinction was to reference medieval woodblock prints, illuminated manuscripts, and tarot cards that are rich with lore and symbolism. This was my initial approach and it proved true.

Summon The Terror of Undermountain Contest—Illustration

This was my submission for the Dungeons & Dragons Summon The Terror of Undermountain Contest. The creature, which I call a mesmer, is based on a monster that I created for a horror movie that my friend wrote. I did not win the contest but I was pleased with the submission.

Explorer Wine Label—Deerfoot Vineyards and Winery

In 2018, I was commissioned to illustrate a wine label for Deerfoot Vineyards and Winery, to represent the travel, discovery, and excitement behind their new Explorer wine series. The owners and I are big Indiana Jones fans so it was natural that the label be inspired by The Raiders of the Lost Ark movie poster. We chose a raccoon to represent Dr. René Belloq, one of the main villains of the movie, because raccoons are the most troublesome critters that live on the farm.

Fortune Tellers—Illustration, Typography, and Design. Personal Work

Fortune Tellers is a comic book based on a Dungeons & Dragons game that I played with my friends. Michael Haldeman wrote the story and helped write the script for the book. I illustrated, inked, and designed it. Although never printed, this book is a labor I truly love. Read the book in (PDF) or view the flipbook.
