Dick Hannah Dealerships and the Big Book of Nice

At the beginning of the year, I was asked to collaborate with Dick Hannah Dealerships on a commercial spot they were producing.  I was overjoyed to take part, especially considering local hero, Damian Lillard (of The Portland Trailblazers) was cast as the star of the whole bit.

I was tasked to illustrate several items for the commercial spot, one of them being the cover of the Big Book of Nice that Damian is reading to his young friend.  I think this is one of my favorites.

Although they didn’t use all of the illustrations I created for the commercial, I still think it came out great!  Since these probably won’t see the light of day, I thought I’d show you a few others I came up with that didn’t quite make the cut.

"Starting with a smile is always nice."

"It's nice to lend a hand"

"Sharing is nice."

That about sums it up.  It was great fun taking part in this project, and a wonderful learning experience as well.  Here's to more amazing projects to come this year.  Thanks so much, Dick Hannah and Damian Lillard!
