So, these two images were a great example of minor and major tweaking to satisfy the customers needs! The first image is much more plain, with the general idea of the moon being the softball, the wolf howling at it, and the type hand drawn and added in. After ideation with the client, I unified the drawing by putting it closer together compositionally, adding in the clouds, and incorporating the type into the drawing more.
Successful, YUP! I think so. Let me know what you think?

So, my older brother, Tony who i had draw a LOOOONNNNNG time ago in one of my earlier posts, needed a logo created for his website he was working on. The logo was for a site called, "PC PART SWAP" and was basically about that... PC Part Swapping. lol
ANYHOO, the basic theme was the arrows simulating the "SWAP" idea. I thought, keeping the logo simple would increase it's versatility. My brother agreed. So, I used the very standard "Light Blue" color pertaining to the default color for most computer backgrunds. Then, after goofing around with font choices, I came up with this!
Lots of neat things going on here, even though it looks like there isn't much going on! haha
Enjoy! Comments welcome!
This was a commissioned work for my cousin's friend. He owns a liquor store... wanted it to be similar to the "Menards" Caricature logo...
Too bad I think that logo is U'BER BORING. So, I made a better one!
Using lot's of different line weights, pencil sketching, inking, image cleaning, and mutiply color layers, I came up with THIS bad boy!
Let me know what you think!
Here are a couple of promotional works for my music business! Both poster designs. The photograph was taken by my good friend Jordan Ewert! INCREDIBLE photographer and all around guy! Check out his page: http://jordanewertphoto.com/
I did some adjustments to the gradients and created the faded look toward the bottom. Also incorporated the previously created logo as the header. Looks pretty good, if i do say so myself. The singer is pretty sharp looking too! ;)
The next poster utilizes some of my letter/type face manipulation. The drawing itself is a free hand interpretation of music elements (similar to my senior show work) andformatted in black and white, I think it turned out mighty successful!

Recently, i have been doing some freelance work for creating a logo for the WSL "Wrestling Superstars League" I have been through several trial and definitely error runs and come out with a few designs that i really enjoy. It's nice to get back into coloring digitally and making finished .jpg works. The font i feel needs a littlebit more, but they are good starts.
Any sugestions/comments, let me know!

Well, Happy New Year all!
For my first post of 2011, I FINALLY finished a work that I did for my girlfriend's birthday. It is a painterly rendition of a photo that was taken while we were up in Duluth, MN. We were on the shore of Lake Superior and the lighting was really nice. Needless to say this photo was taken and I loved it. So, I decided to paint...
The canvas is 36"x 48".
Medium: acrylic paint, sharpie, graphite
Layers, layers and more layers!!! This is probably the most time I have ever taken on a single painting. Weeks of work went into this creating abstraction of the rock, and other forms and making them work in harmony with one another. The finished product is successful, i feel. Comments are encouraged and I will try to update with a high quality photo soon.
Hang in there until next time!
