Designing for fun

poster process

11x17's

There has always been something cool about a poster to me. They become a great home for random illustrations that sit on my computer. I like having a tangible piece of art that isn’t only viewed through a screen.

The tattoo itself only took about 20 minutes. Teaching myself the tip of the iceberg in After Effects took a few days…

"Do y'all have stickers?"

stickers

I've always been a huge fan and collector of stickers. It's such a simple way to get your brand out there. Whether you're a restaurant, band, florist, or rodeo clown. Give out your stickers (for free if you can) and people will keep coming back. It's like being the guy that always has a stick of gum. These are the stickers I've had printed over the years. They're way more fun than business cards...

My mural

1921F

Once of my most immature yet proudest pieces of art to date. The brainchild of my college roommates and I, this beauty graced the walls of our apartment. If you sand off several layers of KILZ primer, she’s under there. Only took about 20 black paint pens, two years, and a few beers to draw.
