My New Book: Hamstigator

Update: The book is out! Check out Hamstigator!

The new Petimals book will be coming out in a few weeks and I thought I would show a few images I created for the book. This one is about a pet who is one part Hamster and one part hungry Alligator. Naturally, mayhem ensues when Hamstigator finds out that there are pet turtles in the house.

I worked with author Michael Andrew Fox on book 2 in the Petimals series and already Hamstigator (and the first book, Dogopotamus, which I also illustrated) have received some media attention. Check out Mike’s interview and the story of how the concept was born from a conversation with his son.

More illustrations to come!

Garage Sale Signs

Instead of, I mean, ALONG WITH helping my wife clean out the house, I worked on creating signage for our upcoming Garage Sale.

Because we're currently having a tropical storm (Andrea) and our sale date may be quite wet, I created a 1-color version to half-heartedly try to tape up on poles in the neighborhood and another few to show online.

These designs gave me a chance to poke a little fun at my wife while enjoying a little bit of self-therapy. After all, I'll really miss my beloved Foosball table.

 Why should yard sale/garage sale signs be boring anyway?
Many thanks go out to the wonderful online creative community for offering backgrounds and textures for other creatives to play around with. Lost&Taken. Fudgegraphics. ThinkDesignBlog. Creative Market. Just to name a few.
