For a class in typographic design, I combined some of my paintings with some of my favorite artists’ quotes to create the page designs for this book.  Then I took a class in bookbinding to learn how to make a handmade cover and bind the pages.  I’ve made about 20 copies of this artist book, even sold a few.  You can take a closer look at the inside pages in the slideshow below.

A ship for Marvin of my own design, animated.  

Click the image to view the all-too brief, unfinished Marvin’s ship animation.  (opens as mpeg file in new tab or window).  This looks pretty primitive compared to today’s standards, and is quite pixelated from multiple file compressions.
