Here's a list of characters in that "DARE: SHOOK" cover drawing from the #sketchbook archives, for those who missed it

Help me celebrate my 43rd birthday!


My 42nd year of life was kinda rough. My dog died, my transmission died, and my marriage died (in that order).  But I'm thankful for my friends, fans, and family who helped me get through all that.

And it all starts with you!

A few sketches. Nothing special. . .

5 things this Creative Director did to make it EASY to do a GREAT Job (YOU should copy them)

A very good friend of mine was in talks with an advertising and branding agency called Wishart to do a poster for Canadian sexual assault and rape crisis center Hope 24/7, but had a family issue that took him away from his work, so he recommended me to fill in for him. 

John VanDuzer, President and Creative Director at Wishart, loved my stuff and engaged me to do this poster, which measures 17" x 22". It was a really good experience. Here are some steps John took (and YOU should copy!) to make it easy to give him and his client what they wanted.
