About Strong Odors
Sometimes it is sweet, sometimes startling, sometimes it just stinks…
But it isn’t really about “good” or “bad.” it is about experiencing life—from the aroma of an apple pie wafting over from grandma’s windowsill to the unbearable stench of an angry Tazmanian devil…
Strong odors make life life.
I am a Michigan native currently enjoying the delightful smell of summer wafting in from the window of my northwoods home. When I’m not attempting to help my daughter with “new” math (hopeless) or beat my son in MarioKart (also hopeless) or cooking dinner for my other third child (not quite as hopeless) I like to sit down and watch TV with this super-rad lady whom I met by fate in 1996 and married by luck in 1999.
Currently I’m looking for new editorial and publishing clients. I’d love to do illustrations for your book, magazine or advertising. Please contact me today!
I am also available to speak at your design, art or faith-based event. My topics include creativity, faith, suffering and how the intersection of them all can be the most potent experiences of life. Please contact me for speaking references.
Right now you can also see my work in Traverse City at Seed Studio Gallery and Traverse City Art & Design Studio; and Paper Hat Gallery in Minneapolis. I’m currently looking for hip galleries in Grand Rapids, Chicago and Detroit—please let me know if you’re interested in my work!
Old & New Project is a collaborative biblical graphic art project created by me and Jim LePage. We’re gathering respected and gifted international designers, illustrators and artists to create fresh new visual interpretations of these ancient texts. It’s kind of like a Bible story book for adults with world-class illustrations throughout and absolutely no holds barred.
Traverse City Maker’s Market was started by my good friend Kelly Nogoski, and the following year she and I joined forces to co-coordinate and run the event. TCMM is northern Michigan coolest indie arts & crafts fair, and along with an annual event featuring artists from around Michigan, we participate in periodic smaller community arts events.
