On The Hill

A nonprofit client of mine recently got to go up to D.C. to lobby for their cause, and my project manager and I assisted them with creating some materials for the lunch event. Below are some pictures they sent over!

The client wanted to showcase stories from the people they’re representing, so we worked together to create 15 table tents with stories and different statistics on the back of each. In addition we created a large, clean infographic showing where in the country some of these stories come from, and where they live.

You can see another piece of work I did for a related campaign here on Dribbble (an interactive infographic).

Always great to see your work in the wild!

Hey! I’ll be out at this great fresh2design event tonight, benefitting people affected by Hurricane Harvey:

You can see my idea for a pin design for the show here (but I ran out of time and missed the deadline :).

Hope to see people there tonight! It might snow, so stay safe out there.

Register To Vote! Shirt Design

Recently I volunteered to create a shirt for a coworker’s mother, who herself volunteers to register people to vote at events around the state.

Below are some of the options I sent over for the client to check out. The shirt had to be non-partisan, and the client asked for a Texas bent. The flag version won out, and after a copy change, the shirt was ready for the client to take to her preferred printer!

My coworker sent me a selfie that her mom sent over!

Lumi Plush

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, everyone!

Here’s a bit of a thematic post for today: the little mascot monkey (“Lumi”) that I created for a client at work had plushies made! Definitely a first for my career, haha.

The client ordered these on their own (I am nit-picky and definitely would have had some feedback), but still it was a nice surprise coming back after the holiday. I hope I can get my hands on one!

You can check out some sketches and final art of Lumi here on my website.

Shirt Illustration – Lamb’s Family Day

shirtdesign

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.

Left was my initial sketch, right was the tighter sketch to send to the client for approval. The Dad got a collared Lamb’s shirt, and the Mom got more hair, hah.

If you want to see it, I included the digital version in a gif on Dribbble!

Poe Toaster Pumpkin

Do you know what a “Poe Toaster” is? According to Wikipedia:

Poe Toaster is a media epithet popularly used to refer to an unidentified person (or more probably two persons in succession, possibly father and son) who, for over seven decades, paid an annual tribute to American author Edgar Allan Poe by visiting the cenotaph marking his original grave in Baltimore, Maryland, in the early hours of January 19, Poe’s birthday.

A friend of mine (who saw me doing something illustrative at work) is in an improv group named POE TOASTER, and needed a logo for their event posters. So… Clearly…

And I was feeling uninspired for my pumpkin this year, so I decided to use the last thing in my sketchbook!

I’ll try and find a better picture! Haha.

My friends called me an over-achiever (this did take me… a few hours), but it’s just what I do with pumpkin carving.
