Work in Progress

Here is a series of images captured throughout the progress of creating this part of a work in progress. It did not come out exactly how I imagined it. Does it ever?

The last in a series of four, the Bluegill school painting was commissioned by Badger Printing as promotion for the 2017 Spring fishing opener. Room was left on the top and bottom for text and logos.

Sierra Club – Colorado Posters

Wolves of Douglas County helped sponsor a showing of Medicine of the Wolf by Julia Huffman in Madison last October for which I designed a few posters, one of which was used. Recently, Sierra Club, Colorado picked up the two unused designs for two different commemorative posters for screenings on two separate campuses, Breckenridge and Spring Valley. Here are the posters as they ended up out west.



Work for Dunbarton Oaks

A reconstruction of a bedecked elder as he may have appeared has preoccupied my artistic time lately, based on a site in modern day Panama at Sitio Conte. I am pleased to have collaborated with a colleague on these which were painstaking in their requirements for accuracy of detail, particularly in the ornaments, pendants, and jewelry.

Poster Designs

Here are three poster designs created to promote a screening of “Medicine of the Wolf” a documentary on wolves by Julia Huffman, which won several international film awards. The screening is in October at the Barrymore in Madison. The spare, black and white design was chosen, but I am kind of attached to all of them. Maybe I can use the others for some other purpose in the future. All designs feature my artwork. Here’s the link to the trailer for the filmĀ
