Illustration: Letters of Note

Cover: Wake Forest Magazine | Summer 2016

14 of my illustrations are featured in the Summer Issue of Wake Forest Magazine. This project was such an enjoyable challenge: illustrate a series of letters from the WFU archives revealing tidbits of history and humanity –from humorous to heartrending.

All these pieces were done as large-scale prints on fabric which I then photographed for use in layout. It’s been interesting to see my work come to life on the page combined with text and design in the hands of such a talented creative team (creative direction: Hayes Henderson; Design: Julie Helsabeck). I really love how Julie highlighted color and texture to pull the whole article together.

Here are a few snapshots of the print magazine. See all the images, read the Letters of Note and check out the whole issue online for some good summer reading in Flip Book or digital article form.

Hope you’re having a great summer! I’m also working away on the new Hankie Pankies series – Things that Make Me Cry – (too bad the world keeps adding to that list, right? Hang in there, folks. I think ART helps some.)  You can keep up with in-progress work over on Instagram, in between garden and food and kitty pics. 🙂 Eat a tomato sandwich for me.
