“I had the opportunity to contribute to the ongoing web comic Warm Blood, different artists do every 4 or so pages, so it’s a neat project! I did the first 4 pages of the newest chapter, 6. It’s a comic about some supernatural weirdness and a high school murder mystery. These were fun to work on, and challenging, comics are tough, haha.”

Sisters, Sisters!

From Kerry Gonzáles:
“I’ve had the distinct pleasure of being an instructor to many wonderful students including both Jill De Haan and her younger sister, Missy Turner in the Graphic Design program at Salt Lake Community College.

It’s been a delight to watch their careers grow as they are both very talented women. Current students benefit from viewing Jill & Missy’s student work as well as professional work.

I’m so proud of Jill & Missy and ALL my former students whatever they do and wherever they go! And I love sharing all these wonderful stories.

Jill De Haan

“2018 has been a whirlwind so far. Between rushing to complete tight deadlines and adventuring around Hawaii, I haven’t had a chance to post about this month’s @slugmag cover I had the opportunity to design, let alone flip through it. This morning I found a quiet beach and did just that. Pick one up at anywhere cool.”


Kim Jeppson

“I found this quote the other day that I designed about 18 months ago as I was transitioning from my old secretarial job to my current design job. It feels just as appropriate now as I’m seeking out a position that’s more in line with what I want to do. Looking to blossom.”
