Here are some rough sketches of my favorite ads this semester. The first is a series for Fung Wah Bus highlighting their corner on low-cost/high-filth travel. The second set includes a couple of ads I made for Lucky Charms in order to appeal to an older crowd nostalgic for the singular taste of shamrocks, moons, and shooting stars. Enjoy!

Some Test Pictures!

I've been experimenting with some pictures for the final version of my CYOA book. I starting shooting through the viewfinder of this overhead projector I borrowed. I don't know if I can actually use these for this project, but I thought they were really interesting and wanted to share them!

Book Covers

Still concepting... I will try to post some sketches later tonight, depending on my success.

So... not much success there, as that was written last weekend!
I'm posting this book cover to get it out of my system. I HATE everything about it because it looks EXACTLY like every other Miller cover I've seen. I ultimately want to produce a cover that's a collage of different images. But the books in the series are so similar that it's getting difficult to create images that are unique to each volume. I'm going to continue working, and I apologize for the delay.

A Couple More

For now, let's just agree to ignore the fact that the back is totally blank.

Some Prototypes!

Here are a couple of early versions. They need a lot more work, but I think I like the concept so far.

Book Covers I've Been Working On

So I've taken a break from my adventure book to work on a few covers for Henry Miller's trilogy Sexus, Plexus, Nexus. These books were written later in Miller's life, and address a lot of the material originally covered in the Tropic of Capricorn. I wanted to produce images that would signify construction and progress, and eventually depict Miller's self-discovery as an author. I took some quick photos with a point and shoot just to get a feel for the project. I ultimately plan on including a much more interesting backdrop than my bedroom, don't worry. What do you think of the idea so far?

Here's one layout for Nexus. I want to include some other elements, maybe flowers and a blue sky, as the last volume ends with Miller's flight from New York.

Here's an idea for how my spines might look. Each brick would be on one spine.
