Everything is green in this part of the universe, because of that huge green nebula that’s eating up all the other wavelengths of light. That and because I really like green.

Want to learn how to make these labels in Illustrator? I wrote a tutorial on Vectortuts.com that will show you how.
Huja Brew! Sikh and Destroy! This beer label was created for Ajai Huja’s brew party in Eugene Oregon 2006. I wanted to capture Ajai’s laid-back nature on the label and still have it looking as professional as anything else on the supermarket shelf. The labels were a hit!
It’s Smurfette! This may look like quick little drawing, but it’s actually etching print using the “Intaglio” technique. Basically, I covered a zinc metal plate with an acid-proof coating, then “drew” the image by scraping off the coating where the image goes, and placing the plate in a bath of acid. The acid eats away the metal where there is no protective coating. Many many repeats of this process with different lengths of times in the bath are needed to get the right amount of tonal differences. When the plate is done I cover it with ink, wipe off the excess, slap a damp piece of paper on top, and run it through the press. The pattern in the background is actually a piece of lace I placed over the coating.
This animation depicts the state of the Moon and Earth during the Early Jurassic period according to lunarorigin.com whom this work was commissioned for.
Dude, skulls and flowers and arrows, what else do you need for a kick-ass graphical arrangement? Some wings or blood splatters you say? Nahh, it’s good just like that, BLAM!
Here’s a soccer T-Shirt design with some serious Hawaiian flavor. Check out Dissent Soccer Designs for sizes and types of T’s it’s available on.
This save-the-date card was created for my friends Ajai and Christin, with their visual sensibilities in mind. They liked a lotus flower theme, and even sat down with me to hand-choose some of the images to be used. The design is brought into the actual wedding invitations, response card, and info card as well. There is a bit of symbolism too, if you like, in the two larger lotus flowers coming together in the middle. They would represent the bride and groom being together.
This nebula and earth-like planet were created in Photoshop from scratch and from my over-active imagination. This planet is basking in the radiance of the distant nebula that is so huge it fills the heavens.
Where Does Milk Come From? I illustrated and put together this book for the Oregon State University’s “Health in Action” preschool level health awareness program. This 11 page book is a cute little step-by-step process of how milk gets from the cow into your bowl of cereal. I had a blast drawing up some fun images for this project.
