Mr Liquid Crystal

James Fergason invented LCD technology. His contributions to science have led to everything from my first calculator and Casio watch, to Gameboys and ipods. His daughter Teri wrote a book about his amazing life. I was thrilled to contribute a portrait for the cover, and am looking forward to learning about his journey. Wonderful Book design by Susan Shankin.

We Want You

Here's a new piece for HR Magazine, which is a take-off on the classic "Uncle Sam - I want You" poster. It accompanies an article about the US government's efforts to attract more mellennials to work for them. Art director Mari Adams simply asked me to create a younger version of Uncle Sam wearing Beats headphones. It was really fun. Thanks Mari!

You can check out more work here at my new site!

Life as I See It

My ex-wife used to say a picture is always more interesting if there are people (or dogs) in it. I try to keep this in mind whenever  I'm sketching the world in front of me. Here are recent excerpts from my sketchbook.
