David Flaherty recently completed an image for the Direct Marketing Association to be used on a poster and other applications. The image of a baby polar bear was designed to work with the DMA's pre-existing recycle logo consisting of a recycle bin. The image, was intended to appeal to children who would in turn, motivate parents to recycle. The polar bear is an example of a species endangered by global warming.

Trying to freshen up that old topic of smoking bans coming in across the world, I suggested the idea of the only place left for a smoking room being in orbit.

A great job to do just in time for spring cleaning! Bryan was great to work with on this. I had more opportunity to abstract the concept here a little more and I have been oddly obsessed with circles lately.

art director: SooJin Buzelli
At the beginning of this assignment, SooJin sent me an e-mail with several samples of my work which appealed to her. One of these images was created in a style that I developed a few years ago. The art looks like an historical document from an old archive (I stain the paper with Darjeeling tea to give it an antique look). I love to work in this style, though I don't get many opportunities to do so. I'm glad that SooJin encouraged me to use this tea-soaked style for this assignment.
This illustration accompanied an article about army personnel negotiating leave time for the holidays. You can see more samples of this tea-soaked style here.
