Identity and Logos
I love logotype work and specialize in brand refreshes. Please see the Logo section of my portfolio to get a sense of the branding services that I offer, and contact me directly with any inquiries.
Commercial Lettering & Illustration
If you have an editorial, advertising, book cover, or other commercial lettering or illustration project in mind, contact Frank Sturges.
If you are interested in working with me on a children’s book or are an international publisher interested in translating my existing children's books, contact my literary agent Seth Fishman.
If you are interested in licensing any of my work for use on your products or would like to collaborate on an artist partnership product line, contact me and I will put you in touch with my licensing agent.
Because of the amount of side projects I’m already managing, I only participate in collaborative projects that are for charitable organizations or are created by people I have a personal relationship with. Feel free to contact me if you fall into one of these categories.
I’m unable to take on personal commissions at this time. This includes tattoo designs, wedding invitation designs, presents for significant others, etc.
Speaking & Workshops
I’m taking on new public speaking gigs in a limited capacity. I'm available for online-only events for panel discussions or "fireside chat" format talks. I prefer not to book more than 8 months in advance. Contact me, you’ll receive a response within 1-2 weeks.
I hold in person and online workshops from time to time. If you want to be alerted about workshops, sign up for my mailing list. I also have classes available on Skillshare and Teachable.
If you’d like to feature me or my work in your magazine, feel free to get in touch. I have compiled a press page that includes bios of varying lengths, links to press photos, and I can send you a link to high res work upon request. Please include the deadline for work submission in the subject line of your email. Contact me, you should receive a response within 1-2 weeks. If the feature is about one of my children's books, contact Kaitlin Kneafsey at Penguin Random House.
There are so many blogs in the world! Because of the amount of requests I receive for blog interviews, I am taking them on in a very limited capacity. Preference is given to well designed blogs with high readership. I love collaborating with writers, and prefer this format over a basic Q&A. Contact me, you’ll receive a response within a few weeks.
Student Interviews / Advice
Students! You’re great and I love you but please do not contact me with generic “Dear Sir / Madam” emails or with questionnaires that start with “Please describe your profession.” Those sorts of emails give me angry eyebrows, and angry eyebrows give you wrinkles.
If you send me a generic email, you will not receive a response. If you send me genuinely interesting questions that haven’t been previously answered in interviews I’ve linked to or in my FAQ, I’ll get back to you during one of my “unburying myself from email” days. I cannot send you high resolution images for your student projects, FPO low res are fine enough to work with as I don’t believe these sorts of projects should ever be included in a final portfolio. Contact me here.
I’m not taking on interns at this time.
Portfolio Reviews / Professional Critiques
I am not performing portfolio reviews at this time. However, if you are traveling to the Bay Area, feel free to write me and if I have room in my calendar for a brief visit I will do what I can to make it work.
