Erik Weikert and I are starting a project where we design a bunch of beers. The Project is called Fiftytwo Beers. This is our first : The Wave Ripa, and tip of the hat to the 80s thrill seeker. Stay tuned, lots more to come.
I had a chance to work with the good people from HUGE to help with a concept pitch for Bell Tire. I was asked to illustrate the famous Belle Tire Tire Man as a young and charming Tire Boy as the new face of the brand. Unfortunately this concept was not chosen by the client, but i was really happy with how this turned out.
I created a one off, tee graphic for the band MOE for there “Night at the Arcade” show in Philly. The show was held at an old arcade and Moe went all out. The good folks at SELECT asked me to do something with a moth and i went right to being inspired by old arcade cabnet art. I also was able to pull the “Moe.” type out so it can be worked into any other merch options. The “kirby krackle” was key!
Finally got to put this illustration to good use. Got some one color prints made from Fine Southern Gentleman for Afterhours poster show in Austin. The profits from the sales will go to Kids In A New Groove The show is on November 9th at the Wright Brothers Brew & Brew in Austin. Go buy some prints!
The great folks at SELECT reached out to me to work on another fun project. I was asked to illustrate a T-shirt graphic for The Phish 2018 Tour incorporating Godzilla in a B movie style render. Don’t temp me with a good time. My favorite part of the whole process is always the first sketch idea presentation, this one was one of my favs. Pic one up at the official Phish Dry Goods site.
My good friend Steve Stetson of the band Gold Crayon asked me to create a mark for there latest album.
This was one of the last 15 min Monday morning type jam that we did, and probably one of my favorites.
Did a quick flyer for a home town creative meet up. See y’all there!
Had the pleasure of collaborating with very talented Eric Hunter on this mural for the new Marshall Brewing Tap Room in Tulsa, OK. The mural describes the 4 main ingredients in beer: Yeast, Hops, Water and Malt. The wall also accommodated 3D elements that enhanced audience interaction with the elements. Next time you are in Tulsa go grab a pint or six.
I had the pleasure to team up with the uber talented Erik Weikert to brand Botánica Music Festival held in San Antonio. The goal was to celebrate local flavors and draw international acts to the second largest city in Texas. We created a vibrant and youthful branding that gave the first time festival and attendance of over 12,000.
I created graphic for the Rockford Peaches for a project. This character was to fierce not to share.
Another gem from the vaults. Painted up a jungle themed kids room for a project that never saw the light of day.
Some licensing art i did up for the Halloween Michael Myers series. The college piece took a good amount of time to make and unfortunately never saw the light of day. Another gets thrown in the vaults! (Law and Order door close sound)
