When employees are promoted to their first management role they are often given a welcome, a congratulations and little else. These “frontline leaders” can have the most impact on employee engagement and productivity yet they don’t know how to manage. Often, they are not given sufficient training, management tools and support to lead. They need constant learning opportunities and senior mentoring to develop into successful leaders.

This cover illustration is about how the flow of digital information/money is forever changing the banking industry. It’s very complex and on a mind boggling scale. The illustration is somewhat of a departure for me or least an experiment. It was difficult to distill the article into a singular, conceptual image so I decided on a more diagrammatical solution that involves many layers and international currency references. I think it depicts the feeling of movement around the globe and how the world is really one giant market.

Paul Bunyan, a giant lumberjack in American folklore finds himself in my growing series of images for “Myths, Fables and Fantastical Tales”. The subject of North American tall tales, Bunyan, accompanied by Babe the Blue Ox apparently made his debut in a 1916 promo piece for the Red River Lumber Company and became a legend of oral story telling. He’s been covered by Disney, the theatre and numerous statues.

A piece I illustrated about USA Gambling that pretty much fits on this election day. Some call it a roll of the dice others call it something else.
