Fun 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.
You can check out the digital version in a gif on Dribbble.
I 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.
Here’s a little emailer/beginning of an identity that I liked. The client went in a different direction for the event, but I figured this should live on somewhere!
I also created a custom ampersand, since the one included with the Franchise typeface is not exactly what we needed.
Here’s a detail shot of the type treatment, which I had fun with:
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!

Through the magic of the internet, I recently found a bar in Tokyo called Little Texas. I’m going on a boondoggle soon to Japan with some friends, so on a whim I decided to make a little something as a gift to the bar owners. I’ll let you know how it goes!
It’s always cool to see stuff you did at work out in public! Saw this at the Cedar Park Center this weekend when I went to see Video Games Live. This went through a lot of concepts and revisions, so it was nice to have it finally see the light of day.
I haven’t seen my KGSR “Discover the Difference” ad that’s at the Dell Diamond yet, but hopefully I’ll have an opportunity to snap a photo of that soon. It has a custom typeface out of music shapes and instruments/tools (I started with the Cubano typeface) that I made specifically for the ad, because what we wanted didn’t seem to exist, or was too childish. Lots of fun little vector icon-like illustrations.
Well, Blues on the Green got canceled this week, due to the crazy monsoon we’ve been going through in central Texas. But! We’re on schedule for next week (weather permitting).
Here’s a couple of fun things that I’ve gotten to work on for the event.
Promo poster and branded aluminum water bottles for giveaway (to celebrate the 25th anniversary of KGSR/Blues on the Green!).
