About Me

My photo
All I know to be is doing what I love, and what I love to do is art. From graphic design to photography to fine art, I love to do it all. My experiences as a student has taught me many ways to create better design as well as more expressive art. From learning the intricacies of Adobe Creative Suite to the delicacies of letterpress and silk screen printing, I find myself to be a more well-rounded, ambitious, and creative individual. With all of this at my disposal, there is no limit to what I can create.

Eye Spy Books Identity and Book Jackets

Meg Lanslow Mystery/Humor Series Book Covers

Eye Spy is a logo I developed for a made-up publishing company. Eye Spy Books publishes for mystery and humor authors. Donna Andrews is one those writers and is known for her avian-themed mystery novels. I developed a series of 3 book jackets based on the content and attitude of her novels. Her novels tend to be light-hearted, funny, quirky, and sometimes outrageous, so to capture this I went with a light hand-drawn quality and minimized my color palette. I tried to keep the illustrations relevant to each individual story as to engage the reader without giving away the entire story. The Eye Spy logo is in black and white so as not to distract from the overall design.
