2012 FD World Championship - Program

2012 FD World Championship – Program

Flying Dutchman World Championship was held in the United States last year in 2012. I was asked to design their materials (posters, programs, and t-shirts, as well as their plaques). There were teams arriving from all over the world and I was thrilled to introduce my designs for them. It was held in California and they wanted a retro theme, showcasing the fun and history of the state. Check out some of my designs at the week long regatta.

Three Girls in Paris

Three Girls in Paris

I was asked to illustrate my client’s daughters playing around in Paris. Their dream is to go to France, so in this illustration we created a Parisian world with their loved ones. I hoped I brought a little Paris into their lives.

I was happy to design a logo for Marvelous Mealz just recently. Here are some conceptional designs, as well as final. Working with the owners was a pleasant experience, they were open to suggestions and we finalized a nice logo logo for them.

Hi everyone. I’m sorry I haven’t been here in awhile. I am keeping busy with my design job and freelance work and mostly spending time with my newborn twins. It has been a very busy year, so I apologize for not keeping up with my posting. I just been so excited preparing for my new babies before they arrived and now that they are here I just so much enjoy spending my time with them along with creating whatever my clients need that I have fallen off the social blogging network. But you will see me here more again!

  • ART Q U O T E S

    I am essentially a painter of the kind of still life composition that communicates a sense of tranquillity and privacy, moods which I have always valued above all else.
    ::: Giorgio Morandi :::

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
    ::: Andrew Wyeth :::

    A sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas what is in front of him, but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing.
