Ghost Slime


Sometimes, a designer has to roll up his sleeves and get messy. That's just what I did for this Scholastic Books project. I had the pleasure of designing the interior pages around the amazing Gary LaCoste ghost illustrations for the book included in this special paranormal science kit!

Cantata Learning


As the Art Director for Cantata Learning, I'm responsible for the researching/hiring/managing of artists, book design, layout, production and generally managing all things related to the visuals of 35-50 books per publishing season. It’s a lot of work, a ton of wonderful art and so much fun! Cantata Learning is an educational publisher, creating books and music audio that address content areas, especially for PreK-1 and Grades 1-3, using familiar and original music, simple text, and age-appropriate illustrations.

Sparkhouse Frolic Picture Books


In 2015-2016 I art directed the launch season of Sparkhouse Family's frolic books. Working closely with the team, I developed the look and feel of the multi-series product line, which included a Bible board book, a series of four smaller board books and four picture books. In additional to the design of the books, I had the pleasure of managing the art creation, working with the super-talented Illustrators Natasha Rimmington and Michael Garton. 

Here is the first series of picture books.

I'm not sure what was more fun . . . designing this book, kit and apron or directing the photoshoot. A 2-day food photography shoot is especially fun when the set is full of pop-tarts, gummi bears and marshmallow!
