3 Blind Wines!

There was a fund-raiser for St. Peter’s by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Gulfport, Mississippi in October 2015. I created the graphic for the event, an evening of wine and food tasting where each team of participants contributed 3 bottles of red wine and one team went home with over 150 bottles of red wine.

Diocese of Mississippi Council 2016

The 2016 Diocesan Council for the Episcopal Diocese of Mississippi was held in Biloxi this year. As part of the host team, I created some graphics for the event.

The 2016 theme was reflected in this graphic I created for use on all council printed material:

2016 Being One Church in MissionI also created this banner, incorporating a popular message from the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church USA, Michael Curry:

The Episcopal branch of the Jesus movement.To my delight, it was shared over social media 1000s of times and became a photo destination in the convention hall. Update: This graphic has been picked up by Forward Movement for use on a variety of products. It was also the Episcopal Meme for July 4, 2016.

A Graphic Update for St. Joseph’s

I was asked by a friend in Atlanta to create an updated graphic for St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church in McDonough, Georgia.

I started the process with a brief study of St. Joseph and made some sketches.

Fanny’s Fashion Journey

I made this toy book for an art exhibit in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Each 2-page spread is dedicated to a decade, beginning with the 1920s and ending with the 1970s. A cat head moves from costume to costume.

50’s Formal Fantasy paper doll.

Sophisticated lady of the 50's doll.50s_gal_d4fin50s_gal_d3fin50s_gal_d2fin50s_gal_d1finThe Fifties Formal Fantasy paper doll set is based on photographs from formal dances that my mother and her bridge club friends provided me. The dresses drawn from these photos were worn at formal dances in the late 1940’s, to early 1950’s. I challenged myself to create the artwork using the gradient mesh in Adobe Illustrator, which was a new feature of the program at the time I made these illustrations.

mgnr_cards2mgnr_cards1

This set of nursery rhyme cards were inspired by nursery rhyme advertising cards created by Kate Greenaway. My version is an updated interpretation of the verses, created using Adobe Illustrator. The cards are designed with slits, into which the characters’ heads can be inserted.
