Shirt Illustration – Lamb’s Family Day

shirtdesign

sketchFun little illustration project I got to do for an October employee event for Lamb’s Tire & Automotive; employees and their families went out to Six Flags for the day (there’s one more flag on the roller coaster in the background, hah).

Just got sent a shirt today! I’m pretty happy with how it came out. I don’t get to illustrate people very often; I’m going to try and incorporate it more into my personal projects. Originally it was an interracial family, but colors were limited later on in the project. Anyway, the kid got the dad’s nose but the mom’s ears.

MondoCon III: 2016

Third year of MondoCon, third year volunteering! One of my favorite events, and loving seeing the same people coming back every year (volunteers and attendees!).

Aaron Draplin did this year’s identity for the event; merch, shirts, program, beer can, everything! I even saw a baby onesie. This was his second year back, and I’m a huge fan of him and his work, especially since meeting him at Design Ranch a couple of years ago. I may have offered to be his personal assistant for the event… was I joking? A mystery.

screen-shot-2016-11-09-at-4-45-38-pmOne of my only purchases from the event was the MondoCon version of the Wall-e print from Tom Whalen. Pretty thrilled with how this print looks, especially since I didn’t care for Kevin Tong’s take on the movie poster back when Mondo did their Disney show. Nothing personal to Kevin Tong; I own some of his gorgeous work as well!

I also got some shirts (including the Industry Print-designed volunteer shirt), a few enamel pins (quickly becoming my new addiction), and stickers galore. Oh, and some AWESOME bar-b-que for lunch, from Micklethwait Craft Meats.

Here’s a great photo recap from MondoCon.

See you guys out there next year.

Austin Monthly Sighting

austin-monthlyI recently created this look for the Agaverama tequila sale at Twin Liquors. Definitely a fun campaign to work on, with the color freedom and subject matter. It was a tiny surreal coming across it in Austin Monthly (I’ll never get used to seeing my work in the wild).

I mocked up a little pin of the agave and put it on Dribbble when I made this ad in July. Then I learned you can’t do gradients on pins. Boooo.

Three Years of Ginny’s Car Show Posters

cars_blog_660
The end result of three years is looking a bit like a set, with little intention on my part (apart from wanting to do illustrations!). White, red, and blue (‘Murica), facing right, center, and left. If only I had kept the bulk of the text at the bottom… Hah. All three of them have the Austin skyline in them (the middle one reflected in the windshield of the TR6). This year (the Camero) was chosen because we recently had one join the family by way of marriage.🙂

Five years of doing car show posters for Ginny’s Little Longhorn. Here’s to five more!

Under the Radar: Brad Woodard

aiga_2

Today I volunteered at/attended the AIGA Brad Woodard talk. I’ve been following his work for years (and forgot he was involved with this great brush pack that I own). He was a very funny and humble guy, and as a result he gave a great talk. Apparently he moved to Austin a couple years back.

Also, this is the first time we had to start turning people away; Lewis Carnegie was absolutely packed!
