Rock Poster for our band, The JV and our buddies Def Leprechaun and Post Adolescence. We were going to each play a David Bowie song in our sets which inspired this ‘Spider From Mars’ theme. It was also October and nearly Halloween and I saw this image in my head that could have the spider-ship look like a pumpkin from a distance or at first glance.
2014 was the 25th anniversary of Nirvana’s seminal album, Nevermind and we thought we’d honor that by incorporating the theme into our Wiffle Ball Tournament and use our baseball head character in the scene. This character has been through all 18 years with us. I just wasn’t all that comfortable drawing the private parts on him…and since we play Wiffle in bare feet and shorts…this seemed more appropriate. Water is hard to portray in one color, I’ll say that. […]
Custom T-shirt Design for Cascade Bruins Football 2014, ‘Finish the Fight’. The team brought me the slogan ‘Finish the Fight’. So, I designed this to look like a Bruin Bear just punched the wearer of the shirt with his giant paw…he means to finish this fight after all. It’s meant to look good printed in different colors on multiple different colored shirts. Now all they gotta do I guess is go finish it, Go Bruins! Vector art Created in Adobe Illustrator
Goodman Real Estate has a bowling tournament every year and they have t-shirts made for the event. I’ve been doing their shirts for awhile and they always turn out best when they have a distinct theme…especially since the shirts are always the same company color scheme. It’s certainly challenging to make them feel unique and exciting year to year. In 2014, their them was Mad Men the television series. This image is so iconic I just followed its lead and made it work […]
Tracy was having a big 50th birthday party with some friends over in Hawaii, and wanted shirts and other swag to give to her special guests…y’know, something fun with her image on it and commemorating the trip. Nothing like locks of hair that turn into a flowered lei for your birthday, I say. It’s always challenging but fun to figure out a one color screen print design; bold but with sufficient detail.
My Godson KJ was the Everett Herald 2014 All Area Player of the Year in his senior baseball Season, leading them to their second straight State Baseball Tournament appearance. As he graduated high school, I wanted to give him something more than just the cash that is customary these days; something more personal. He’s a great kid with an electric smile…bright as his future.
I love making posters for shows that our band plays. The other bands seem to get a kick out of my designs as well which is also a lot of fun. One of the best parts is trying to make it conceptual…even though I bet most people don’t really search that hard for the ‘deeper meaning’ in them…doesn’t matter, I know it’s there. In this case, we are playing in Fremont, a hip little community close to the city in […]
Another design for the Goodman Real Estate Annual Bowling Tournament. I love it when they have a theme for me to dive into…in 2011 the owner John Goodman was racing his car in Monaco (I know, super cool right?!). This design was inspired by the vintage racing posters from the Monaco Grand Prix Races (I just LOVE those designs). Who wouldn’t want a bowling pin car? This was surely one of my favorite designs I’ve done for them, I was […]
