CHEF ALAN GREELEY
A master chef and a master sommelier—two amazing guys. Created two "word portraits" for a television show pitch and then turned them into posters. Got a free meal and a nice bottle of plonk. Ain't life grand?
One of the world's great Master Sommeliers. Look closely and you can read the names of the fine wines he represents.

CREATIVE CAMPAIGN CONCEPT
A cosmetic client wishing for a campaign targeting millenials.
It had to be hip, vibrant and lifestyle-specific.
SOMETIMES YOU JUST DESIGN
I've been experimenting with creating "engraved line" images. Here I wanted a product image with a lot of textures to bring out the beauty of the engraving process. While I was at it, I gave both the logo and headline an interesting treatment—what's better than stitches?
PETER J. GOMES HONORS
Peter Gomes, Minister in Memorial Church at Harvard University, was both friend and classmate. I don't often get to do drawing in my design work, so this project was singularly bittersweet.
I'VE ALWAYS BEEN A DODGERS' FAN
Here is an old-school design technique: engraving. This series of 10 posters includes all Dodgers who have had their numbers retired. Here are just two of them. This may be the only complete series of posters for retired number players on any MLB team. Click here to see all ten.
What can you say about Jackie Robinson that hasn't already been said?
EVEN SMALL JOBS DESERVE BIG IDEAS
MSteve Jost is an inveterate jazz buff, so his yacht club sponsored a Sunday jazz series. Notice how nice Steve's image is. It's always a pleasure to design with quality images... they always makes ya look better than ya are.
HOW DO YOU GET TEACHERS TO RETAIN YOUR MATERIALS?
…by utilizing your Course Prep folder for a poster. I created a "cutline" illustration in just one color for the Ocean Institute. Every teacher in the county received one.
A LABOR OF LOVE
Bob Hansen is a fine-art photographer and this book showcases duo-tone images made with a large-format view camera. The book printed as duotones, is available as a soft-cover or hard back with case.
LET'S MAKE IT 40' WIDE!
…so I created this banner which stretched across the entire breadth of a new Toyota dealership showroom. Boy, was that fun!
Catalina! I wanna go right now!
Got to do a lot of flying with this client. I put an iconic DeHavilland Beaver in this poster after posterizing an image shot by Steve Jost. Some clients are just fun to do work for. Poster: 14" x 18"
Wooden boats—nothing else like 'em!
The Maritime Preservation Trust is a candy store for wooden boat lovers. They restore, preserve and sail these classics—all while teaching traditional skills to new generations. 8.5" x 11.0" tri-fold brochure.
GIVING BACK IS GOOD.
Want to see your design on just about every kiosk, bus and poster in the heart of L.A? Easy, just volunteer your services. The Levitt Pavilion folks simply turned me loose. The red poster is a proposed design. As the poster says, fifty great concerts across the summer... all free.
communicating a place in time
East Berlin. 1965. This image is actually composed from four separate images brought together in Photoshop, while the actual design-side was handled in Illustrator. I chose a typeface, to communicate that gritty, no-frills world that was East Berlin.
AMERICAN YOUTH SYMPHONY
These young musicians are really good, so it was well worth creating this poster in celebration of the organization's 50th anniversay season.
IF THIS IS ABOUT PRINT, WE NEED A BOOK.
Nothing is more rewarding than book design. It is the mothership. This book cover was designed for a fine clinical psychologist This gene-model cover is because it is the fundamental issue the author confronts in this book, one of eight, designed for this author.
Healing Runaway Minds
THis the cover for another book written by this ground-breaking clinical psychologist. I also designed the interior of the book as well.
