The first image was deemed too “male-centric”. The men have since transformed into Narwhals.
The images were made in Adobe Illustrator. At Student Health Services, we are working on creating a Peer Counseling Program to help deal with the growing issue of mental illness/stigma on campus. The image is supposed to represent two people talking about their feelings. The Narwhals are more P.C.
C.O.P.E.S–Collective of People Experiencing Stigma (or other “S” Words”: suicidal thoughts, social anxiety, sadness, S.A.D., substance abuse, etc)

A NYC Jazz musician commissioned me to create his album artwork. The guidelines were: minimal color, Peter walking away, a grandfather clock, and old-timey text. I created this using Photoshop.
Ah. My hometown of Ypsilanti, Michigan. No one knows where it’s located, so I have to say that I’m from Detroit or Ann Arbor. Being on the east coast also makes me aware of my Midwestern Peculiarities. For example: Michiganders can use their hand as a map. People look at me like I’m crazy when I point at my palm and say “I’m from here!”
Ypsilanti is home to many ridiculous things: The Elvis festival, the Rubber Ducky race, goat lawnmowers, and a very VERY phallic water tower. I think it has a world record. Also, I’m very proud of the shading on the penis.
