Covid-Leave Update (pinned)

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to hop on the site and give a quick update about emailing and projects.

With Covid still looming, I am in the same boat as many parents who do not yet have access to regular childcare and so have been unable or greatly delayed in responding to your important project emails.

Hopefully this will not be the case in the near future, but until then, I wish you health, safety, and love.

In the mean time I have been doodling over on my Instagram LittleSketchBurke if you want to check that out.

Illustrations may still appear here periodically under the pinned post.

A Special Christmas Card

This precious family suffered the great tragedy of losing a baby son who would be 8 years old this year. This mother dearly wanted him represented in their family illustration in a special way so I created a small peaceful pure white bird that she is holding with her son (This amazing young man changed his own name to include his brother’s). The bird’s wing is a little blue foot print and his tail is a heart. 

As a designer I am often asked both directly and indirectly to create illustrations that represent people’s deepest insecurities, biggest dreams, and most profound hurts. It is a responsibility I do not take lightly and of which I am honored to be invited.

Joey + Puppy

These kitties ended up on a T-shirt as a Christmas gift for their owner.

We called it the kitty-titty shirt because, lets be honest, it was better than putting them on the shirt vertically.  I’m happy to report she loves them.

I think I got Joey’s gangly teenage cat look down compared to her older counterpart.

This was fun.
