Christina Mandelski - The Sweetest Thing

Some of you may have read this sweet contemporary that debuted in 2011, and you may have heard of it's publisher, Egmont, closing it's US branch earlier this year. This gave Christina a unique opportunity to revisit her novel, make some tweaks, and re-release it! I was hesitant to design her new cover, and then the entire book jacket, but she had more confidence in me than I had in myself, and I gave it a shot. I'm quite happy with the way it turned out.

Willow Creek Junction - Band Event Poster


The guitar player of this Texas country band and I used to be in a band together back in college. They've been playing more gigs lately, so I snapped some photos of the core members and whipped up this event poster. (I sing with them occasionally, too, so that's been fun!)


(Their logo was previously designed by another designer--will update with that link)
