It’s been a while since I’ve posted, so I thought I’d catch up with a few recent pieces from a favourite regular client, the Penn Gazette.
It's the Year of the Dog! And to celebrate, PRADA launched it's seasonal fragrance packaging, featuring my work, worldwide in February 2018. Xīn nián kuài lè!

Play is the Thing! I couldn't help but have a little fun with this assignment for Live Happy Magazine---the value of play as a part of the everyday. From gaming to hoops in the office, it's not just for kids anymore!

I've had the pleasure of working with RA Today for several years, so when it came time for a new re-design, it was an exciting challenge. A new colour palette & graphic approach to my work brings a fresh look to us both.
New work for Penn Gazette that focuses on a student's life-long experiences with living in close quarters.
New work for Penn Gazette, for an article entitled 'Bridges to Health'. Thanks to the Penn-based program Puentes de Salud, low-cost healthcare and services are now available to uninsured Philadelphia immigrant populations, many of whom are Latino. It was this connection that I wanted to celebrate in the art by bringing in the graphic, folk-art feel of Latin American embroidery.
I've just wrapped up a really fun project for Imperial College London. Each year Imperial holds an alumni event for graduates and their families. My job was to create a design for a t-shirt, and several shadow puppets to be laser-cut. All this as part of a fantastic loot bag for the kids, complete with a flashlight, for this year's theme 'the year of light'!
Today's Parent recently commissioned me to create these sweet horoscope icons for the wee ones.
With spring on the way, it's got me thinking about the cherry blossom festivals, or 'Hanami', that take place in Japan and around the world. What better way to emerge from winter than with some research into the topic, and a brand new illustrated map of Japan's most popular spots to celebrate the spring bloom.
Keep your eyes open this spring for these lovely little notecards from teNeues!
