Independent Authors

Having worked with several independent authors of late I am struck by the opportunities and difficulties in the arena of book publishing today. With on demand printing it has become possible for anyone to self publish a book with no cost up front. You create the artwork, set the inside of the book and save […]

Another cartoon for UBM future cities

Another installment for the UBM future cities website. I thought it was interesting to use this visual for a story that was in favor of an urban composting initiative. Curious how something which would be a negative aspect in the real world, can be kind of cute in a cartoon… isn’t it?
