The digital department manager at Ooligan Press is the reason I’ve drawn many cute animals over the past year. She’s the reason my silly animal drawings are all over the Ooligan Press website, so when she requested some kitchy animals for her instructional ebook guide, I was happy to oblige. Without further ado, may I present cute animals with ereaders!
Sword + Dagger Logo Design
I was recently contacted by two lovely graduates of my publishing program — they had combined forces to start a publishing services company called Sword and Dagger. They had a super cool name and some fabulous design inspiration to go along with it. It didn’t take me much time at all to create some logo ideas:

Let’s get this sketch blog back up and running!
Dam Good Books
Here’s another little thing I whipped up for Ooligan Press:
I offered a beaver-less option if the press wanted to be a bit more high-brow, but I’m happy to see the little guy made the cut.
Ooligan Press is putting together “Dam Book Bundles” – basically a collection of 3 titles that our press has published. The titles are offered at a discount because you’re buying multiple books. It’s a pretty sweet deal, and you can check it out here if you want to buy some excellent titles from a student-run independent press. Check it out for the puns alone!
Ooligan Press Blog Branding
I’ve completed my first year of grad school. Crazy! The next few months are going to be relatively light, responsibility-wise, so expect to see new material pop up in your news feeds on a regular basis. Unless I get really lazy this summer…
Anyway, what follows are some blog badges I created for the student-run publisher I work for, Ooligan Press. We’re working on rebranding the Press and changing up the website, and my silly little doodles are part of it all.
First time around I created everything in Adobe Illustrator, which made everything graphic and clean, but these were missing the hand-drawn/human element that is an integral part of the press’ identity.
You may notice I was roped into creating a few more badges. This is not the last you’ll see of the Ooligan-related work I did this term.
