The Hermanator

Former CEO for Godfather's Pizza, Herman Cain, has announced that he's going to run for President in 2012 and will be seeking the Republican nomination. I remembered doing a spot illustration of him in 1996 when he resigned from Godfather's to become head of the National Restaurant Association. The client wanted me to illustrate him in the "I Want You" pose and wearing a button that proclaimed him, "The Hermanator!" A chicken in every pot, a car in every garage, and double pepperoni for all!

Killebrew dies at 74

I just saw the news a few minutes ago that Harmon Killebrew died today from esophogeal cancer and thought I'd re-post this entry and illustration I did from June, 2009 as a tribute:
"Harmon Killebrew was a feared power hitter with the nicknames "Killer" and "Hammerin' Harmon." Despite his "Killer" nickname and his powerful stocky build, Killebrew was in fact a quiet, kind man who didn't really join in with his partying teammates. Asked by reporters what he liked to do for fun, Killebrew replied, "Well, I like to wash dishes, I guess." 
 I like Harmon.

Take This Book...And Shelve It!

Here's a commissioned t-shirt design based on Snack Time for the Georgetown University Library Access Services Division. I think the shirts are going to be gifts to the student workers. The book-shelving monster is devouring GU's Lauinger Library!
