IF: Sugary

I don't know if they are sweet or not but with a name like "Jelly"fish I bet they're delicious.

The Forest is strong...

So this was a fun shirt to work on for obvious reasons. For some reason my boss was worried about making sure the ships didn't look like x-wing or tie-fighters. I would think the whole layout and light sabers and death star would be more of a concern than the tiny ships but you do what you gotta do right?

So my brother Mike is getting married today. A few years ago my wife decided a great wedding present would be a hand drawn portrait of the wedding announcement photo. So I've done a few of these for friends. I enjoy it. Hope Mike likes it.

recent tees

Here's a couple designs from work. I really like the way the pirate one turned out. Both look quite nice printed on the shirt.

Some Recent Logo Work

Aside from designing T-shirts, I get to do Logo design from time to time. Here's a couple I did last month.

IF: SAVE...again

Wow. Two posts on the same topic. So I started this this morning thinking It would be cute. After the first 3 sketches I decided to go a different route. I've always loved David Shannon's "NO DAVID" books. I find the art incredible. I love the idea of the kid telling his own story with the pictures rather than an adult trying to capture what the kid is experiencing. I thought I'd give that a go and I really like it. Plus it was a lot more fun.

I guess I got baseball on my mind. One of my boys has figured out how to hit a ball. He's 3 so it's pretty cool. Anyway this is the reliever coming in to SAVE the game.

I've been busy again. Wanted to post something- This is a little cartoon I made at school like 4 years ago just for fun. It's based on an old SNL skit and don't worry: It's just ketchup...

I've been wasting time trying to come up with something to do. Figured I should just sit down and do it. Found some pics of people online just for portrait practice. This is alright considering it's been quite a while since I last took a stab at a portrait. The sketch was fun. Ball point pen- not my usual tool of choice but my kids seem to have run off with all my pencils. Then I put it in photoshop and played with value. I am finding that whole process enjoyable which is good as I sometimes find myself bored with work. That's all for now. Thanks for coming by. Tell me what you think.


Realizing this could be fun I started playing in photoshop with different expressions. Then I thought, 'Hey, this could be a fun thing for the IF topic: MULTIPLE.' So here you go: multiple expressions. It's a lot of fun- I may keep going all week long.

Why has it been so long?

So for Christmas we got our kids a dog. I guess it turns out we kind of got me a dog. We call her NACHO(as in, "Hey! That's Nacho Doggie!"-not your doggie). She's a boxer. She is almost 4 months old now. I realize these are not drawings or art really. But I wanted to show what I've been doing with my free time where I haven't been able to draw much. So here it is. Also on the day we got her, my wife told me she is with child, our 5th. She's been quite sick and so when I'm not working, or taking care of "my kid's" dog, I've been doing laundry, cleaning house, dishes etc. She's feeling better now so hopefully free times right around the corner.

Wow! Has it really been that long?

These are something I did for a play some folks at the church were putting on. I wish I had more time to put into it but they had a limited budget and I didn't have a ton of extra time to put into it for free, but I think it turned out pretty good. The color one ended up about 11x17 with date/time info in the big empty space in the bottom left corner. The B/W image was for a program just 8x5. They didn't need the info so I added the dress. I was going for the Drew Struzan movie poster look. Obviously not even close to the quality and detail he puts into it. I even borrowed his composition a little bit from his Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom poster.
