Our New Baby!!

Well, my wife, Rayna, and I have an announcement to make: We are now proud parents of a 24" 2.8ghz iMac! (I'm sorry, Mom and Dad for not telling you first) We plan on holding an iMac shower in the near future--invites are forthcoming. Feel free to be generous on the gifts--new Epson scanners, printers, external HDs, iPods, iPhones are welcome gifts (anything with an Apple logo is great--if it doesn't have an Apple logo I can put one on it--the computer came with two Apple stickers). Even OpenType fonts are a desired. Maybe a new Wacom Tablet?!! Don't be stingy.

Okay, Rayna, you've had your turn on the computer, now it's my turn. C'mon, you've been hogging it all night!! I can see this is going to be a problem. That's it, I'm off to buy another one…

Spaghetti Rex

Nothing says Italian food more than Tyranosaurus Rex! Am I right?
I have been working on a personal portfolio project for the last few weeks and decided to post some updates. This is a concept branding scheme for an italian restaurant. This is a fun one. Maybe I can sell this brand some day for a lot of money. I'll probably work on more illustrations following this theme--maybe of other dinosaurs doing italian food activities. I'll also do some business cards, stationary, and letterhead,--and maybe a website mock-up.

Here are some sample menu pages. The menu was stol--BORROWED-- from "The Olive Garden".
