Cover Illustration - "Who-Ville"

Here's an illustration for a newsletter/magazine published by the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University - the Academy of Alternative Journalism. The first image is the published newsprint copy and below is the wrap-around illustration. The image is kind of a Dr. Suess inspired rendering of the Chicago skyline (albeit very much different from the Dr. Suess art - I just couldn't pull it off).

Brief Profile in Chicago Magazine.

The newest issue of Chicago Magazine ran a one page feature in conjunction with Ivan Brunetti's upcoming "An Anthology of Graphic Fiction, Cartoons, and True Stories", profiling four of the cartoonists included in his book: Archer Prewitt, Jeffrey Brown, John Hankiewicz, and me. The reason being, of course, that we're all from Chicago. Pretty nice of them to include me with these guys. Here's the cover:

New Strip - for Oxford American Magazine.

(Click for larger version)
Here's a new strip I did for Oxford American Magazine, their Southern Music Issue. The title is in reference to Alien Sex Fiend, not Johnny Cash by the way. Anyway, they also feature comics by Patrick Dean and Martin Cendreda - pretty cool. Oh, and you can find the issue (with an accompanying CD with tracks by Sun Ra, Richard Hell, The 6ths, Sam Cooke, and others) at Barnes & Noble, Borders, and Tower Records. Here's the cover:

"Onsmith" Logos...

It seems a bit self-indulgent, but these logos are actually for a class I'm taking. The assignment was to create a personal "tag" or logo incorporating our name, so these are some of what I came up with.

U-Tunes CD Illustrations...

Here's the finished product of some illustrations I did for a CD of children's music for a church. Yep, that's right - for a church. So if you happen to be an art director or publisher, just know that I'm open to all sorts of illustration jobs. The layout, production, coloring, and typeset was done by Jake Thomas. Below are some additional drawings for the CD insert.
