Sustainable Seafood Poster

I recently did this illustration for Alaska Seafood.  It has been made into a poster, which should be appearing soon in Kroger grocery stores nationwide. Next time you're buying fish, take a look!

Half-Timbered Wall

I recently made a small set for a catalog shoot, that was intended to look like an old half-timbered building. I made the wall, put together the salvaged wood into 'timbers', and drove some big nails as coat hooks. The hangers were part of the job, too. They were new, but made to look like weathered antiques. 

Fake Stone Column

I recently made a column of stone, out of foam, for an Eddie Bauer Catalog Shoot. It was made to be on a set that matched an interior from a location shot.  Here are a few pictures of the column in progress, to show how I did it, and how it turned out.


We made all kinds of stuff. These 'helicopter seeds' twirl as they fall. There were dioramas, Polar bear dens, a bunch of tents, a jeep, Coral reefs, Weather stations, a boat, and half a bison! It was a huge project, which took two semis to load it all to travel to Denver. Here's a link to a preview of the project. I'll post more pictures when I get them.

More NRG!

Here are more pictures of the work in progress. Kevin Seal worked with me a lot. It's always good to work with Kevin. We did a lot of foam-carving. Here are a few pictures of the crawl-through coral reef, the polar bear den, and the reef diorama.


I have been doing work with Seth! Leary of NRG! Exhibits (exclamation points are his, and not intended to be pronounced like clicks, so far as I can tell). He develops traveling science exhibits for Kids' Museums. This show starts in Denver, where Seth is installing it this very day. I'm sure it's a very LONG day for Seth, because there was a PILE of stuff made for this exhibit.

Taco Time Ad

Here are more pictures of the Taco Time Set, at Seattle Grip and Lighting.  And here's a link to the ad that's been running. David Leonard, of Leonard Creative, created the ad. Pat Cashman is the talent. Oscar, Kaleo and I were the Art Department.
