A visual history through event posters. 2019 was the 10th anniversary of working with Mainstreet Uptown Butte and the Montana Folk Festival. Ya know what they call that? They call that a decade—a long time. Though it seems like just yesterday that I was cutting teeth on the National Folk Festival, it is amazing where the […]
Michelle’s Custom Taxidermy hired Doodl to create a bold, yet elegant identity for their local Montana taxidermy business.

In an attempt to give people […]

Project background. A local editor called me for help in developing a brand for their wordsmith business, so I jumped at the opportunity to create a unique logo design that speaks to their audience.

To get in the mood I’ve been drawing and sketching and painting things like this. This particular painting is inspired by a few Western movies […]
I’ve seen tons of these paisley animal designs all over the internet. They are all pretty generic. So, I thought it would be fun to incorporate some story elements into the artwork. I wanted to create some sort of hidden narrative that is more than just a bunch of lines. There’s nothing wrong with pretty. In […]
God Made Dirt was my first kids’ book – yes, the author and illustrator. While it is primarily for my own children and grandchildren, I hope it is also a part of an ongoing legacy that future generations, as well as you, will enjoy. While I am an artist and designer by trade I have […]

Project Background: The Living Room Furniture hired Doodl to build a new brand for their stores in both Missoula and Kalispell. We started by simplifying the basic idea of the Furniture logo.

Project Background: This was a personal pro-bono project for the Bitterroot Valley Homeschool group in Montana. The group contacted me about designing their graduation program. That was easy enough, but without some sort of identity, there was really no direction. Each young adult that was graduating had their own sense of style making the essential message […]
