Here’s a nice little image from the Sespe. I like the contrast between the two plants, and I like the way the color of the sky came out an ominous gray. I shot the original image shortly after sunset, and the sky was a sort of bluish gray to begin with. I stumble upon an area along the river bank where there seemed to be a lot of really old husks of cars strewn about. Perhaps it was a place where people dumped their trash a long time ago.

Pretty exciting – I’ve cranked out 3 of these images in the last couple of weeks.

Here’s a pretty little picture I shot this week near the Sespe River in Fillmore. This is probably the first edited and completed image I have posted this year. With a death in the family, and a few other artistic distractions, it’s been an odd year for me. It feels good to be making landscape images again, and I can guarantee there will be more on the way!

One More Jersey Design for Open Air

December 4th, 2012 Permalink

openAir5_1-1 I uploaded the final file for another Open Air Bikes jersey. Apparently Open Air sold all of the last ones I designed for them, so they re-upped and ordered a third design. That’s pretty cool! This design was my favorite from the get go, but it didn’t make the first round. I’m happy that […]

This design was my favorite from the get go, but it didn’t make the first round. I’m happy that it’s going in the second.

Dead of Night Poster

Dead of Night Poster I did this little poster here for Moorpark based Dead of Night. This is the web version – we made different versions for the printed 11″x17″ posters and the 4″x6″ post cards. I shot the images of the skull in my studio. It is a styrofoam prop Amelia had left over […]

I did this little poster here for Moorpark based Dead of Night. This is the web version – we made different versions for the printed 11″x17″ posters and the 4″x6″ post cards. I shot the images of the skull in my studio. It is a styrofoam prop Amelia had left over from Halloween.

I love doing rock posters, so I’ve been pretty excited about this job. It takes me back to my days as a fledgling designer when I was making band fliers with black construction paper and Letraset, printing them out on a Xerox machine.

Dead of Night will be playing on Friday December 7 a Arena Sports Grill and bar in Simi Valley, CA.

Core Brands Logo

October 27th, 2012 Permalink

Here’s a little logo I designed for a company called Core Brands a few months ago. I guess Core Brands is some kind of subsidiary of a company called Nortek. Apparently, Nortek is some huge company in Delaware, so I guess that it’s a big deal that I’m now designing logos for publicly traded companies. […]

Apparently, Nortek is some huge company in Delaware, so I guess that it’s a big deal that I’m now designing logos for publicly traded companies.

I had to produce this logo in 3 days, and I got paid pretty well for it. Definitely not by best work by any means, but in a sense it is my most prestigious work to date. Before this I’d never done a really big logo job for a big corporation such as this one and the experience, to say the least, was interesting.
