RO High School Choir Senior Posters ’23

Last spring I continued my commitment to helping the amazing Mrs. Williams, (choir teacher at Royal Oak High School) by designing the senior banners.

Fun fact: In the background of the poster design, I used a music score for texture. It’s How Far I’ll Go from the Disney movie Moana. My daughter and her friend sang this song at the choir’s ROX concert this spring. Hence all the pixie dust incorporated into the design.

RO High School Choir Senior Posters ’22

In the spring of 2022, I volunteered to help the Royal Oak High School Choir.

I was challenged to design 20″ x 30″ banners showcasing the senior choir students, as well as a yard sign that will be used for marketing and fundraising.

The task required photographing the 25 senior students with a mobile setup I brought to the high school. It also unexpectedly, required a complete logo rebuild because the original vector file couldn’t be located. Mrs. Williams, the choir director does such an awesome job and wears many hats. I was happy to help her program as a choir booster. The seniors were confident, easy going, and great to photograph. The Print Stop Inc. in Berkeley did a great job with a quick turnaround printing and installation the banners. Gratefully, the seniors were surprised and happy to see their banners hanging for all to see at their final concert. The whole choir put on an amazing show. This was a fun and rewarding project to volunteer my time and creativity towards.


Banners installed. The seniors were very happy.

Look for these yard signs around town.

the Turncoat

It’s RELEASE DAY TODAY for The Turncoat, book #3 in the Rebels and Redcoats Saga, written by my friend Tracey otherwise known as T.J. London.

I’m hoping everyone loves the eCover and book jacket for the Turncoat as much as Tracey and I do. You can get a copy today through Amazon, Barnes and Nobel, IBOOKS, and Kobo.

This is my jacket design for the second book in the Redcoats & Rebels Saga by T.J. London, set to release October 26, 2018.

For this project, I kept with the style of the first book, the Tory, for a unified design. As with the last book, I shot the cover in my home studio using the same model, Brian, who represents the protagonist in the author’s trilogy. T.J. London herself was the other model, or should I say ‘hand model’. It was a crazy fun day, and this is the result of our hard work. You can find it on Amazon after it’s release date.

Here’s my portfolio link to the work I’ve done for Tracey (aka T.J. London).

Congrats to My Friend Tracey (aka T.J. London) on her new book release! For this project, I fully immersed myself in her story of John Carlisle, the protagonist in her Revolutionary Wartime historical fiction story, before concepting, photographing, and designing the book jacket. It was a great project to follow the design of her brand logo for Revolutionary Author. I look forward to completing the next two books in the series.

Check it out. It’s on Amazon!
