Currently working on some custom illustrations for a client's infographic about Pittsburgh. Here's a work in progress of Andy Warhol. Enjoy.
I recently completed the identity / word mark for Tenkara Angler Magazine.
Tenkara Magazine is a quarterly publication that chronicles the Tenkara fly fishing community through entries about lifestyle, destination, tactics, gear, art, photography and creative essay. The publication has received outstanding press from Orvis and Le Mouching.

I collaborated once again with the very talented Emily Rodgers on her upcoming release from MISRA Records, entitled "Two Years." Be sure to look this fantastic woman up by visiting her site. Stay tuned for the release, but in the meantime, you can have a listen to one of her albums by clicking here.
I've been asked by Tenkara Angler Magazine to design a new word-mark to represent the publication's new branding moving forward. Above are a few early design studies showing a potential mark situated in the environment of the online magazine. We are in the final stages so stay tuned.
I was recently accepted into the stickermule.com marketplace - so here are three of my sticker designs that are available for purchase. Hopefully I'll have more up very soon, so keep checking back! Enjoy.
As the snow falls here in Pennsylvania, I'm fighting cabin fever by working on concepts for some new stickers. Enjoy.
Posted a bit early due to a super busy Saturday planned for tomorrow. This is derived from some Inuit / Native American representations of fish. Enjoy.
So I noticed I missed the first Saturday of January with a small sketch. Found a little time at lunch to whip something up. Enjoy.
Feeling a little under the weather so this will serve as Saturday's small sketch. I've decided to go through my old sketchbooks and pull images from those for inspiration. Enjoy. Original sketch below.

As some of you are aware, I'm an avid fly fisherman who has been in the sport for over 32 years. A few years ago a bunch of friends and I decided we needed a name for our unofficial fishing club. It turned out - DRIFT - or Dudes Really Into Fishing for Trout - became our choice. Therefore, we all became Drifters. So we'll see how this one evolves. Stay tuned.
This the mark I created a few years ago for the Penn's Woods West Chapter of Trout Unlimited. As a card carrying member of this fantastic organization, I encourage you to check them out. This year's annual event is slated for Sunday, March 6, 2016 at the Marriot Pittsburgh North in Cranberry Township, PA. Hope to see you there.
I decided to try setting aside some time each Saturday and doing a small sketch. This is the first one the series of a mayfly nymph. I have some ideas as to where this could take me, so it really helps me think through the process. Enjoy!
I helped out my buddy Todd of Toddopolis with some neat, quirky icons based on his brand identity that offer him a fun way to reach out to his clients. He is using them to keep his brand front and center via item tags, holiday cards and social post imagery.
I've once again teamed up with Lance Wilt of Outcast Anglers to help him spread the word about his fly fishing guide service. New stuff on the horizon, so stay tuned and tight lines to all!
I teamed up with a new client in 2015, Brian Cooper, and we are full steam ahead in 2016 with his new brand—Salvaged. Stay tuned for more great things as we roll out a new website, truck wrap and whatever else we can dream up!
My good colleague and friend Todd Lepley, of Toddopolis, and I recently wrote and designed some promotional pieces for our friends at Upper Canyon Outfitters. We are continuing to develop their new brand campaign in 2016 so you can look forward to more exciting work.
