Cover illustration: The silent epidemic: A child psychologist's journey beyond death row
Dr. Susan D. Rich, self-published with Lulu. A book about understanding and preventing a difficult issue --neurodevelopmental disorder associated with prenatal alcohol exposure-- calls for an impactful and, well, sobering cover illustration. I teamed up with my multi-talented friend and landscape architect Amber Mikluscak to create this image, which is comprised of pencil drawing, watercolor wash, and photographic overlay.
Cover illustration: Aspects of agency
Alfred Mele, Oxford University Press. My dad happens to be a world renowned philosopher who, thankfully for my freelancing career, cranks out an incredible number of books-- on the topic of free will, no less. (He argues that we have free will, but to learn more, please buy the book when it comes out in 2017.) Thanks to Muybridge for the moving figure.

Joshua Gert, Oxford University Press. Josh Gert is a philosopher at the College of William and Mary who writes about the philosophy of color. He requested an illustration of a 'tough-looking guy' wearing a 'very wrinkled pink shirt', as seen through a bus window, along with all the other accoutrements you see here: fly bottle, giant colorful snowflakes, and references to previous works on this subject, for those who are in the know.
