I usually avoid open-call design competitions but I saw on Facebook that my friend Erik Brandt was following an autism poster competition, a great cause, with some great judges. I became intrigued, and while I was reading my 3-1/2 year old was rearranging a wooden rainbow toy into the shape of a little person. I thought this was an apt metaphor for the way all children - but especially autistic children - perceive the world differently (plus, rainbows are made of perception, sunlight and rain.)

5280 is Denver's city magazine that, due to it's remarkable location, runs a lot of stories on outdoor sports. They have given me several great assignments including this one titled “Survival Stories,” which is a series of first-hand accounts of near-death experiences. I proposed we handle it with drawings in the 2-color style of the old Boy’s Life magazine testimonial comics.
