New Design

This has been my last 2 days.


This is my first real collaboration with another artist. I came up with the idea, then blocked the design out. Danny did the finished design. He spruced it up without really changing my design so to me it turned out really cool. That's got to be the best part of this partnership, the ability to bounce designs back and forth and then lay down the best of both.

The first design is my original and the second design is the finished piece.

These will be sold at Walmart in the next year or so.

2nd St Army Surplus

I did a quick piece for the local army surplus. I had limits on this one. It could only be 2 colors and the guy already had the shirts so it had to me shades of Brown. Anyway here it is.

Stressfull Weekend

Had an opportunity spring up last Friday and was told I could get my foot in the door with a client if I could get a couple of designs done over the weekend that they liked. Then there would be more work in the future.
Its a contract job for a client who holds a lot of licenses, one is obviously Rainforest Cafe, which is what they sprung on me Friday.
I started with a frog design and I got way into the design before I realized that while someone might wear it. I wouldn't and that's the best test as far as I'm concerned. So I scraped it so far into it that I got really stressed and I was up til 4 Sunday morning finishing the gorilla. Then I put the parrot together today.
Turning the Gorilla in tomorrow and the parrot in Tuesday.
Gonna make me more this weekend then I'll make all week at work.

Anyway have a look, let me know what you think if you would.
