This graphic was created for Rosmary Cowell of UCSD, with the following instructions: "In the paper, I talk about the fable of the blind men and the elephant (in short: seven blind men examine an elephant and each declare it to be something different because they only examine one part of it. I use this fable to caution against treating the perirhinal cortex in the same way, so a cartoon of a group of blind or blindfolded men groping the medial temporal lobe of the brain would be ideal!"

Academic Journal Covers
I created these using a combination of Illustrator and Photoshop. The concepts were based on the articles submitted for publication by members of the Laboratory of Cognitive Neurobiology at Boston University. I'm proud to say that these covers were distributed to the scientific community world wide.
Ms. Longmire is an independent consultant and freelance writer, and is an ASBPE award-winning correspondent for Homeland Security Today magazine and website. She contacted me to design branding for her that incorporated the business initials, and conveyed security.
I created this postcard in Illustrator, for a special girl's Bat Mitzvah. She had definite ideas of what she wanted, and was thrilled with the results.
Posnack Sports Awards Banquet
I was contacted by a member of the Posnack Jewish Day School's (Davie, Fl) social committee to design a poster for their annual sports awards banquet. They wanted "their" rams logo, and the olympic motto incorporated within it. Other than that, I had free reign. This was created in Illustrator.
The Dawg House
This branding was created in Illustrator. Here's a description provided by their website: "The Dawg House Bar and Grill is a kick ass place where you can be yourself and have great food and good times! Awesome music and if the mood hits, get up and dance on the bar! THE place for Red Dirt Music in NW Missouri."
The Interview was is an independent film written, directed, and produced by Bill Connant. He asked me to produce a dvd jacket and poster for it, and gave me the leeway to do as I wished. I created the poster in Photoshop, and the jacket in InDesign.
North Shore Jeeps
This branding was done for an off-road enthusiast club based on the North side of Boston. As a proud founding member, I was more than happy to create our identity.
Dog Eat Dog
This project was intended to be the branding for a hot dog festival that was supposed to take place in Boston's City Hall Plaza. Unfortunately, things didn't work out for the host, and he was forced to abandon his plans for the festival. It's a shame, really. He had all of the sponsors lined up, but the amount of money the city wanted to use the plaza, was cost prohibitive. You can still check out the website for the food critic/host, as it is fantastic and informative.
