Poetry is not Advertising

Now that I’m not spending the bulk of my days in the world of graphic design for advertising, my art energies are more available to help out friends. These are some flyers I spec’d up for my way-back childhood friend, poet, John Most.





When I was younger I used to entertain my friends by drawing funny but unflattering portraits of our teachers and of them and myself. Now I use that skill to draw simply happy pictures of people that my daughter will recognize. It makes her smile, which makes me smile. So now I draw simple pictures like this, even when she’s not watching, because her smile makes me happy.
