'America the Grateful' is the title of a new book by US author Lisa Suhay, designed by award-winning designer Robert Suhay and illustrated by me. The book is 32 pages long. This is the cover, for now; I will add a few more pages but will put in a link here for you to see more pages from the book. For me, it's a privilege to do work honouring the powerful force that is gratitude. It was certainly a labour of love for all three of us. The book will soon be available on Amazon, if it isn't already, by the time you read this.

John Holloway's amazing company, Swala Aerospace Ltd, is based in the UK. His mission is to build a craft that will jettison the ramjets powering the craft and its payloads into space so that they can be re-used. John's projects have been depicted here in the past, with models being launched from Tesla Model S cars and from a SIM track, but now he's pondering a 1/5 size model to be launched as a proof of concept with a payload. It has been very interesting to collaborate with John in devising a platform that would be streamlined but strong enough to deal with the task he envisions. The latest initiative is planned in the US.

John Holloway is the founder of Swala Aerospace, UK. He wanted a visualisation of the Swala craft taking off from a SIM track which works using magnets (seen below the rails) for a presentation to be done in the Middle East. It was interesting coming up with a new angle to this craft, which has come through several changes, using different ramjets and diffusers and being launched from various different vehicles in model form.

Dave Britzius has made a career out of doing what he loves - making aircraft simulators. Now he offers people the opportunity, via his new e-book, to construct their own simulators as he has done. Carefully documenting the process, he's laid out over 700 pages of meticulous instructions, photos and diagrams. He commissioned me to design the cover for this e-book. More on Dave and his amazing doings can be found on www.davebritzius.com

About Me:
Experienced digital and traditional illustrator working in 24 styles, I'm based in South Africa but work internationally because the net is our country, right?

Also do graphic design, some animation and e-book production as well as scriptwriting. Favourite programmes are Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Premier and Soundbooth to make ideas visible (and sometimes audible), all with the loyal help of my Wacom Cintiq.

Basically my work is all about giving life to ideas and all these tools are a means to a beautiful and effective end. More details and my portfolio appear on savyra.com.
