In celebration of the day Marty McFly returns to the future, I contributed this piece to a charity art show benefiting Michael J Fox’s Parkinson’s Research organization. The Show was held in Los Angeles on October 21st 2015, and sponsored by STNDRD Magazine and Shoe Palace.
I was invited by Strange Ways in Connecticut to design an anniversary poster for the cult-horror film All About Evil. I didn’t know about it initially, but discovered it’s dark humor and origins in San Francisco’s underground scene, made it rich in inspiration.
There are still a handful of copies available here:
I made this as part of a collaboration between Tumblr’s #PostItForward initiative, and Brittany Snow’s charity organization Love is Louder. The root of both campaigns, I think, is to find an anchor that makes you happy, and grab hold. The shirt is available at tumblrmerch.com and sales benifit #loveislouder
I made this retro greaser zombie graphic in celebration of South Florida’s finest comic shop’s 20th anniversary. Tate’s rules, and also houses Bear and Bird Gallery, one of the first places I displayed artwork upon moving to Miami. To celebrate, they printed 3D postcards, and had Fine Print Shoppe on hand to do live shirt printing, where magic mash-ups like the shirt below happend…
Very happy to have worked alongside the folks at Converse to brand their Converse Rubber Tracks Live Boston homecoming. I was asked to create the collateral for five consecutive nights of shows at The Sinclair in Cambridge, MA. We agreed on the theme of historic tavern signage, and I designed sign for each night and laid the graphic over an illustrated mass of eclectic Bostonians. Cornerstone Agency assembled some top-tier performers, and got them to perform sandwiched between a swelling crowd of living screaming fans, and my animated mass of illustrated fans.
In addition to drawing the posters, I was invited to make Show Drawn sketches. Each night was as fun to draw as the last. The eclectic roster brought-out the best characters from all sides of Boston.
Omid Farhang and his crew at Momentum invited me to draw around 500 portraits for a their parent company’s Global Leadership Summit in Miami. I was provided headshots for each attendee, and prepped all the drawings in advance of the event. The results were stunning. They incorporated the drawings into nearly every aspect of the summit branding, including portrait M&Ms! They made an illustrated program/yearbook, pillows, shirts, and custom lanyards for each attendee, which made for nice conversation pieces. Some people loved their portraits, some didn’t, but it looked great overall and was certainly something to talk about.
Ryan Travis Christian curated this solid duck themed art show in New York at Greenpoint Terminal Gallery, and had a great opening that I happened to be in town for. These dudes Yeti and Firebush performed at the opening and I drew it. Then by some magic I ended up having a duck-pin-bowling piece in the Los Angeles incarnation of the Duck Show. Awesome! It was held at Minataur Projects, and featured like every artist I’ve ever admired. So rad.
