Tough Guy

I have been working recently for a small fashion label making t-shirt graphics for their 1950’s motorcycle themed shirts. I don’t think I can post the actual designs, but here are some the illustrated elements I have done.


Tina Kalivas

Quick sketch from Tina Kalivas Spring ’10 line.

Spring Buddhadharma

These illustrations are for Buddhadharma’s upcoming spring edition. The spots are for the section “First Thoughts” and the last illo is for a feature article called “The Seeds of Hate”. It was actually a very interesting and honest piece. It was written by someone who went on a retreat and describes how there was so much tension there that it felt like a tornado was about to touch down upon the camp. The author realizes during this time that hate and anger grows rapidly, in a domino effect from one person to the next. In order to stop it, one needs to step back, take a breath and end the cycle before it continues down the line, despite the fact that this is usually a very difficult thing to do.

As always, thanks Seth!

Baby Time

Last week I made this book plate for one of my nearest and dearest friends. She is throwing a baby shower for a friend of hers and wanted to have these made so that everyone at the party could fill one out and put it in a book for the baby. Her friend is a textile designer with aspirations to design shoes and the father is a chef. This was a lot of fun to draw and I can’t wait to see pics of them in the actual books!

Invitation #2

A second invitation option for my friends getting married, using more traditional tattoo flash inspiration.

Cat Invitation

I made this illustration for the wedding invitation of our friends Alex and Sue who are getting married soon in their home country of Korea. They were pretty open to anything I wanted to do in terms of the design, so I went with this Russian tattoo art inspired image of a husband and wife cat couple. According to the book we have on tattoo flash, this tattoo would be for a husband and wife team who were thieves. I just thought the image was very precious, especially the hats, as did Alex and Sue and we’re hoping their families like it as well!
