Had a blast making a little thing for the great folks at Inneract Project in San Francisco. Inneract Project empowers youth through design education that links them to opportunities to explore design in college, career, and life. Vroom!
Trick or Treeeeat! 'All Hallows Eve' creeps up on us (pun intended) every year before we get a chance to make something fun in celebration, but not this year! We're happy to announce our 'Halloween Mini-Print Set' consisting of (13) 2-sided 6" x 6" uncoated offset prints to scare the neighbors, kids or family dog! Packaged in a plastic polybag with header card - and priced at only $13. Fun for the whole family.
Our new book is out! We had the pleasure of illustrating The World Shines For You, by Jeffrey Burton. This is the first book in the 'Shine Bright' series from Simon Kids, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. The size of this book (and the printing process) is pretty special - and if I do say so myself - it should really be experienced in person! Details: 24 pages / Dimensions: 9" x 10" with a 2" thick spine / Printing process: CMYK over 1/8" thick duplexed foil paper with embossing throughout / I had a blast working on this and I hope little ones (and older ones!) enjoy interacting with the embossed textures, extra-shiny foil and bright colors throughout. Special thanks to my amazing creative director Chani Yammer. Signed copies (with a free print) are available in our store!
Excited to announce that The Biggest Story ABC Book is available for pre-order and ships in 2 weeks! It's a 7.25" square board book with 30 thick baby slobber-proof pages for the little ones to peruse. The book will be signed by Don and includes a free 6" x 6" print.
Had the pleasure of talking shop with Alex Sugg of Open Air: A podcast on creativity, innovation and the heart.
Last fall we were commissioned by the great folks at NASA JPL to create a new mark for their Solar System Ambassadors program, a public engagement program that works with motivated volunteers across the nation to communicate the excitement of NASA's space exploration missions and information about recent discoveries to people in their local communities. There are more than 700 volunteers in all 50 states as well as Washington DC, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and Guam. Special thanks to David Delgado, Joby Harris and Dan Goods for another fun project. Oh, and check their event calendar to see if they will be in your area.
Ask and you shall receive! Our 'Tokyo' T's have been restocked - and now available in 3XL.
Had a great time chatting with Patrick, Luke and Andrew over at the Master of One Podcast. We tackle a handful of subjects including art, design, the fluidity of work/life balance and the pleasures of weekend hobby ranching. Thanks again guys!
Excited to have a chat in Charlotte, North Carolina on Thursday, May 11th! Special thanks to AIGA Charlotte, Centerfold Agency and Ryan Hollingsworth for the invite. See you soon!
It's a two-fer Super7 x IC toy release! Grape Leroy and Series 3 Colonel Stinson are available now! We only have a tiny amount of each - tell your mom!
So excited to announce that I've returned to the world of The Biggest Story! A new ABC board book will be hitting the shelves in late August. Written by Kevin DeYoung and published by Crossway.
This was such a fun project for Seattle's iconic and historic Canlis Restaurant: A small matchbook set given to patrons at the end of their meal - a tradition at Canlis dating all the way back to the restaurant's opening in 1950. Dig into the project to read the concept and see more of the set.
A massive thank you to Dana Tanamachi for asking us to work on this project and for the fabulous art direction. Many thanks to Mark and Brian Canlis as well. I can't wait to go back ...
We love our clients. At the end of each year, we always attempt to show our appreciation by creating something original just for them. This year we decided to put our spin on the chalkboard laptop - simply titled the 'Do/Undo Drawing Kit'. Includes 1 baltic birch chalkboard laptop, 3 pieces of chalk and 1 eraser. Edition of 14. Designed by us and custom built by Curtis Clark, or Dad as we like to call him.
We can't thank you guys enough for all of the orders this Holiday season. We put a lot of love into everything we make (and ship) and we appreciate that love back. It means the world to us. Happy Holidays to you and your family! Also - Just a heads up that we will resume shipping on January 9th, 2017.
