Intern work from Good Housekeeping

Thinking more about moving back to New York recently made me remember that I neglected posting much of my published work from the internship I had last summer with Good Housekeeping Magazine. It's going to be hard leaving Miami, but I'm getting really excited about returning to the city.

Happy Mother's Day (belated)!

This is the cover illustration I made for the Neighbors section of The Miami Herald that published last Sunday, featuring our reader's submissions about the best/favorite advice they received from their mothers. My concept for the illustration was a graphic representation of the inside of a mother's day card, with something sweet written from a child about how great moms are, layering the cards on top of one another like in a scrapbook to show how most moms save each little note their children give them - I know my mom does. I thought it was cute, I was really impressed with how well the color printed. You never know how newsprint will pick up pastel colors, but I was lucky with this one!
