Well… made the move. In the new studio officially. Still in that awkward transition limbo though. Need to get prints on the walls, shelving, and a workbench.
Some #prints have made the move. Hardware hopefully this weekend. #newstudio (Taken with Instagram)
My girls having a midair conversation.
Tobacco sun. I call that woodland home.
My latest design offering to the Black Cowgirl camp. Ben wanted to use this “masonic wizard” for a t-shirt design and asked me to help. I wanted to enhance it a bit, so I drew up the “spooky shape”. It literally has zero meaning, but looks the part enough to house an illustration such as this. Gives the shirt some pop overall.
Ben and I have all always been into conspiracy theories (Masons, New World Order, Black helicopters) to a certain extend. Never quite fully believing them, but entertained never-the-less. My dad at one point (during my high school years) had underground conspiracy theory cassette tapes that we would listen too. We still at times joke about them and so this design is more or less is a physical result of an on going joke, possibly at my dad’s expense. Sorry dad.
Big day for my friends in Black Cowgirl! Their new album (double EP) is officially out today. They just wrapped up a weekend mini tour with The Company Band and I believe they should have the double LP vinyl in their hands shortly (via Bilocation Records). I was lucky enough to lay this album out for Ben and the guys. I get so immersed in corporate design, that it’s nice to work on a project that has a more DIY atheistic behind it. Reminding myself why I got into design to begin with. So if you feel at all obliged, head over to iTunes and preview the solid tunes they produce… then instead of clicking download, go to their Big Cartel merch page and order a CD or LP or both and support the band (and my handy word) directly. Apple is making enough on iPads, they won’t miss their cut. Congrats fellas!
Well the die-cut didn’t come to fruition like I hoped, and they had an obscenely long production lead-time, but these suckers finally showed up in my mailbox (which I neglected to check to due to the intensely soggy weather). Overall I’m rather happy with them.
Wrapped up this fun little sticker project I snuck in between some behemoth projects. Wanted to do something a little more exciting than a glorified address label. Dave (I’m not talking in third person either) plans on placing these on equipment he repairs. Should be eye catching enough to hopefully grab some new business or at least remind the owner where they originally had their equipment repaired.
Been awhile since I’ve posted work of any kinda. Gonna chalk it up to “too busy”. Hence knowing about this project since July and only working on it now in December. I’m sure sharing info like that is winning me all kinds of new clients/work!?
Anyone in our Christmas card network may see these again. I went through 5 xacto blades and numbing of the fingers and wrist cutting these foam board suckas out.
Will be attending in one week.
