    NOVEMBER 2015: I had the honor of creating a cover, three internal illustrations, and a logo that were featured in over 40 alternative weeklies and online media outlets across the country as part of the Letters to the Future climate change project.

    The project was spearheaded by the Sacramento News & Review and their former editor and longtime friend Melinda Welsh. As part of the lead up to the very important U.N. Climate Conference in Paris, many award-winning authors, activists, and the general public contributed their letters to the children of the future. The letters were published online, in all of the participating print and online media outlets, and in a booklet distributed to a number of conference participants.

    I was asked to design the project logos, cover illustration and three internal illustrations to be used by the newspapers, the project website (a design I also contributed to) and the project’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
