I just finished up a job with Bark! Magazine to do some lettering for an article. They are dog names, being the for the same dog. I think the layout looks great!

Froggy photos

I've been commissioned by a postdoctoral research associate here at the museum to take photographs of "cleared and stained" frog specimens. They are super tiny and float in dishes of glycerine. Using the microptics lab has been a challenge but I am quite happy with the photographic results!

Old Roman coin drawing

This is a drawing of two sides of a really old coin. The side with the figure is of winged victory dragging a person (vanquished enemy?) by the head. So you can see the head and torso at the bottom right. I've no idea what the lettering means.

Arabic script engraved in a knife blade

In this illustration I had to draw out the fine engravings on a knife from Egypt. The script engravings on the knife are more doodling than actual text, but still resemble Arabic writing. The larger lettering near the handle is legible script.

Tibetan script on the base of statues

This is another assignment I did for the AMNH, looking at scripts on the base of statues. It's an examination of Tibetan script and whether or not it is actual script, a doodle or decoration.

Drawings for linguistics book cover

These are drawings I did for a possible book cover on linguistics. The curator wanted to show a sign painted on a donkey cart from Africa. The sign translates into something like "good luck". I did a little research and for fun I added the donkey in the roughs. In the end the curator said NO DONKEY. Too bad.

Lost Dog!

I did some sloppy, hand lettering for The BARK! magazine. It's an article about missing dogs. Go buy a magazine and look for my name credit on page 39!

Latest work for AMNH

A request to make a line drawing of a boonea shell, above.
Below was a request to add another missing link to the giant Hominid family tree. This time I drew a new skull, H. georgicus, and placed it in an already existing chart. Some of the other skulls on this chart were drawn by me as well.

Actors that should STOP acting

I did a whole mess of these portraits a ways back (more posted here). Funny how the people I chose just keep flaming out on their own.
