Ron Magnes was commissioned to illustrate two fine art illustrations by a design firm for their client – PPL EnergyPlus. Since the energy company recently opened an office in Pittsburgh, the idea was to give the signed prints to their special prospective clients. The first print highlights the city and the second print shows the north shore. A very successful campaign!
Larry Jones created a series of (24) historical characters for a novelty fortune-telling game called “The Decider” Kind of like a magic 8-ball but with a little ball that lands in one of 5 humorous yes or no answers that the famous person may answer. These are some of the fun characters that he created!
Lately we have had several jobs arise that involved skylines of city buildings. As usual, we needed to submit samples in various styles for client approval. This particular sample was created by Ron Magnes for a photographic shoot and was submitted as a possible style for a new project. We will show those jobs that involve Pittsburgh in a future blog.

Peggy Mozley illustrated a 24 page literacy book recently for Engage Literacy/Hinkler Education in Australia. The story is about Colin’s pet parakeet that was a surprise birthday gift from his mother. He learns how to take care of Pablo, play with him, and teach him various things – all in his home. But one day Pablo escapes to the outside and Colin must figure out how to get him back!
One of our fun projects for this year was a series of mazes to be used in a Mazes Mats book for Publications International. Geared for children 4 and up, Larry Jones illustrated mazes that were kids placemats for fun on the run! Designed as easy-tear pages, kids could use them as “boredom busters” to take anywhere – in the car, to a restaurant or waiting room – wherever they choose! Here are a few of the mazes that Larry created.
