Hand-made Holiday Part II

As you may recall last year I painted a series of colorful woodblocks for our family gift exchange. This year I continued the theme but took it even further in to actual 3-dimensional shapes and created these geometric succulent holders which I stabbed myself with many times during this photoshoot. You're welcome, happy holidays.

Holy Holidaze

How is it possible that I'm already thinking about holiday cards? How did this even happen? Anyway this year's cards are based on the dramatically increased work flow and growing list of social activities and just the overall feeling of insanity I experience every year during the first two weeks of December.  I used day-glo colors in an original illustration piece and actually wrote some words!

Behind The Scenes... continued...

Stoked to present the finished looks from last month's Young Party photoshoot. The result is 4 uniquely colored background patterns used in conjunction with each city's logo to create a super vibey three dimensional neon glow effect. Check it out...

HITS

Here's a vaguely satirical illustration I created on behalf of CAA to commemorate HITS Magazine's 30th anniversary. 

HITS is a music industry trade publication that includes proprietary weekly sales and airplay data, info on breaking artists, interviews with music industry leaders, music industry news, ratings charts and more.

Behind The Scenes

Here's a sneak peek behind the scenes of a photoshoot for this year's CAA Young Party branding. Just some spray painted leaves and colored lights for now, stay tuned to see the magic happen...

STAG HAIR PARLOR

My friends Lauren and Danny who own Stag Hair Parlor on Melrose asked me to come up with a 60's inspired logo they could use on t-shirts and pins to promote the shop. I gave them this logo treatment and they gave me awesome free haircuts - everyone wins!

But seriously if you're in LA and need a rad haircut check them out and grab a t-shirt and button while you're there!

Summer Ice Cream!

Every summer, my company sponsors two ice cream days per week because clearly just one isn't enough. I made this announcement for them which is the best piece of spam you'll get 20 times per year.

CAMP CAA

Here's a fun logo and branded swag bag I did for Camp CAA -  a three day sleep-away camp which helps school-aged kids recognize the beauty of the outdoors, as well as the beauty that comes from building new friendships, shared-experiences, leadership and creativity. 

Totes

Quickie design for client Darren Criss - limited edition tote bags sold during a small run of east coast performance dates.
