Derek Ballard

MAUDE SQUAD, my contribution to @spoke_art’s “Coen, where art thou?” group show. Opening tomorrow at Spoke Art NYC. To use the parlance of our times, this show is gonna be a fricken’ banger!


Alisa Bishop Bradley

“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.”

“I painted some little portraits for some friend gifts! They’re off on new adventures together.”


Charlie Cressall

“The Valentine towels are printed and hot pressed. $5 each. They would be a great addition to a box of chocolates or a bottle of Vodka.” 


Melissa Healy Turner

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

“Guys! I’m doing an AdobeLive event for the next couple of days with some amazing folks and I’ll be talking about Fontself, my process and what have you! Tune in if ye like!” 🎀
