textbulletDeveloped an “elderly woman comic duo” for a series of trade magazine advertisments for Keptel, a telephone network interface company (their ubiquitous grey box is most likely attached to the side of your home or office) which were considered “most recalled or recognized ad” in a reader poll.

textbulletCreated a series of cartoon illustrations for MCA Music Publishing Co. based on Universal’s classic movie monsters, Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolfman and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. Their images were modified enough to avoid copyright infringement.
