Portraits for Public CIO

Michele Melcher

Government Technology Magazine has a recurring supplemental issue called Public CIO. I have done portrait illustrations for it in the past and had the opportunity to create six portraits of industry leaders for it again this year which were then used on the cover and the interior spreads. (Clockwise from top), Rajiv Gupta, Robert Knapp, Tim Merrigan, Chris Atkins, Nick Psaki and Chris O'Malley. I really like how the dark background looks with the portraits that were originally drawn on a white background. Many thanks to Kelly at E.republic for the Creative Direction!

Holiday 2015 Unselfie Orders Are Here!

Michele Melcher

Hello all!
I know that it's not even Halloween yet (the most wonderful time of the year in my house) BUT I wanted to put this announcement up for the 2nd most wonderful time of the year, Christmas! Yup, the winter holidays will be here before we know it and definitely before we are ready for them! In order to give myself a bit more breathing room this year, I will only be taking Holiday orders for Unselfies until Monday, December 7th. This will ensure that you receive your order by December 25th. So if you would like to purchase a great gift for someone special this year go right ahead, the shop is open!

Thanks again for your support!

Illustrations for Philadelphia City Paper, "People Who Died 2014".

Michele Melcher

A few weeks ago I was approached by the Philadelphia City Paper to illustrate the cover and corresponding story for their annual "People Who Died" issue.  Thanks to Brenna and Lillian at CityPaper for the art direction and for this opportunity. I am honored to have worked on this assignment that represents these individuals who touched so many lives in the Philadelphia community and beyond.

You can read parts one, two and three of the full article with the accompanying illustrations here.
