Winnie the Pooh 
& The 100 Aker Wood

While working as Staff Illustrator at a Midtown Manhattan 
book design firm, Antler and Baldwin, I was recommended by my then boss, Sallie Baldwin, to Dutton Publishing, who had been looking for a colorist of the Winnie the Pooh archives--over 200 ink illustrations by Ernest H. Shepard. After two weeks of scrutiny and sample coloring, I was approved and spent two years in the company of 9 unforgettable characters, and their friends and relations.

I worked on over 20 origami kits for publishers including 
Sterling, Thunder Bay, Race Point and Quarto.
In addition to designing the books and working with specialized origami editors, 
I was responsible for designing and illustrating over 80 theme-specific papers. 

Following instructions, folders would be able to achieve the desired results 
with the graphic elements falling exactly in place on the folded origami models.
