Posters and Tees

With the recent art dump featuring renderings and hot rod designs, I figured it might be interesting to continue the theme… That said, here’s some samples of my poster and t-shirt work, from simple spot-color pieces to fun and detailed goodies from the past. Hope you dig it.

A detail-fest for a wheel company project:

BMX race tee… Each year I get to play on these, and I try to theme each one to a different build style. This 1970’s van theme was one of my all-time favorites to work on:

This piece remains one of my all-time favorites, simply because of the detail I was allowed to play with, and the hidden nods and references to friends:

Dino has a great sense of humor, and lets me really go nuts on his annual party posters and tees:

This Old West piece was fun, and the colors just worked-out well indeed.

Another BMX Challenge tee. I mixed and matched some styles, with a little lowrider flavor on the woodie, and my friend’s restored Haro for good measure.

Limited-color work is always a challenge and a blast. Throw some exotics into that mix, and it gets even more fun.

Piece for a friend… a little Roth style and some sewing machine power. What’s not to like?

I really enjoy drawing detailed but fun stuff. DW asked for a shop scene, and away I went.

…and speaking of details, this hot set piece was a load of fun indeed:

…walking the line between infographic and rendering, but landing squarely on ‘t-shirt’. Good times:

More soon, and thanks, as always, for looking in! If you’d like, find me on Facebook, and join the fun. Hope to see you there!
