DID Events & Exhibitions Kiosk posters

I have recently started interning for the Downtown Improvement District on Wayne Street as their graphic designer and I have to say I really love it there. I get to work next to some really awesome people and they never stifle creativity or originality. My first task with them was creating the news events & exhibitions poster that would go in the 10 different information kiosks sitting around downtown. You may see one when your walking to the new Jimmy Johns or going into Chase Bank. Anyways, the size of these posters is 31.5" x 38.5" so it was a hefty space with a lot of text. They wanted to maintain a feel of Spring and keep the old headline but that was about all of the regulations I was given, it was great. I had so much fun designing these and I cant wait till they pop up downtown, which should be any day now.

Dirt Nap Skateboards

Hey all,

Here are a couple illustrations and skate deck designs that I have designed for a fabricated company I named, Dirt Nap Skateboards. When I was growing up before high school, skateboarding was my life and the only thing I cared about. I remember the feeling of walking into the store and seeing all of the deck designs lining the walls; whether it was the fun illustrations from Ed Templeton and Toy Machine, or the clean designs from Chocolate skateboards...I loved it all. I had a lot of fun illustrating this dude and I will be creating 3 more designs in 3 different color schemes each. Stay tuned!

Take dirt naps!

Thanks everyone!

Some new things....

Just giving you guys a couple photos/updates on what I have been up to. Nothing too specific, but I really wanted to update this site with some images to ensure you all that I remain busy.

If you have the chance at 7PM on Sautrday, February 25th...make sure you make it down to the Embassy Theatre to see some great bands and some great art. I have made a couple slides for The Black Crowes, one for R.E.M., and one for Steely Dan. These slides will repeat behind the bands while the show progresses..come have fun and hang out!

Cover design for William Golding's powerful novel, Lord of the Flies. I absolutely love this book so it was great to do this art.
