I had 3 illustrations in this month’s Louisville Magazine. Art direction for all 3 by the wonderful Ms. Suki Anderson.

This one was used for the cover of the “Fit” supplement issue:

Louisville Magazine Dec. 2013 Illustrations

Had several fun assignments in December’s issue of Louisville Magazine. First up is a piece I did for Jack Welch’s “Just Sayin” column about UofL basketball games at the YUM center. I come from a family of die hard UofL fans, so I hope they enjoy this one.

Next up was Mary Welp’s Dine In. I made these crepes before I did the illustration and DANG this recipe is good. Probably my favorite recipe of all Mary’s I’ve had the honor of illustrating so far!

Lastly, I illustrated a beautiful and heart wrenching piece of short fiction, titled “A Little Help” by Nathan Gower. The story was the winner of The First Annual Writers Block Award, presented by Louisville Literary Arts.

Louisville Magazine November 2013

This month’s Louisville Magazine is the education issue and it includes a wonderful interview by Anne Marshall with Meyzeek Middle School teacher Sharonda O’Bannon-Morton. I had the honor of teaching in the same school with Ms. O’Bannon several years ago and always admired her strong presence and ability to connect with all students. This article is a moving and inspiring tribute to a woman who makes a major impact in the lives of kids every single day.

I also have several illustrations in this issue. I was asked to do two pieces to accompany winners of this year’s Renau Writing Contest, which is offered each year to high school seniors. The prize includes scholarship money and the opportunity to be published by Louisville Magazine.

This piece was for “Growing Watermelons” by Will Sack, St. Xavier High School
