Billy White Business Cards

It’s going to be a few days until I will have some new projects completely wrapped up, so I wanted to show these business cards I just got in the mail over the weekend, that I designed for my friend Billy. Given his first name, he is often nicknamed ‘Billy the Kid,’ so why not include the only known photograph of the original Billy on the back? These also serve as appointment sheets, for him to give to clients. Working in the tattoo industry allows for a lot of creativity and chance-taking; these were a blast to make. Be sure and check out some of Billy’s work on his facebook page.

Good Life Website

Today we launched the new website for Good Life Tattoos & Piercings. Steve-bear and I collaborated to bring a full website, complete with artist portfolios, and a complete back-end CMS system, so the artists can update their portfolios whenever they want. These guys are definitely one of the best shops in Ohio, so be sure to check out their stuff.

Art in the Square

I just dropped by Akron’s Annual Art in the Square, and found Kim (and her adorable dog), who is selling the new shirts that Cheryl and I created for the event. Cheryl did the illustration, and I handled the text/layout. Adam at Revival did the printing. Also, several of my friends are vendors, so I snapped a photo of some cards I recently made for Traci, which are alongside the cards I made for Brian.

New Arrah and the Ferns Shirt

Here’s a new shirt I just sent out for Arrah and the Ferns, to be sold on their upcoming tour, in support of their new record. I’ve been drawing a lot more lately, a lot of sketchbook doodling. So for this shirt I made some hand-drawn type, and little extra hand-made bits. I really appreciate the use of non-computer generated art within the graphic design medium; I think that’s a key characteristic of my work. That, and it’s just nice to step away from the computer for a while.

Work featured on KidRobot’s Kronikle!

KidRobot just posted a press release on their Kronikle blog about this months Lovely Lowbrow Toy Show. The release featured my piece, alongside pieces by other artists in the show; Julia Bunn, Jeff Lamm, Jamie Suvak, Joshua Davis, Kate Budd, Sh!t Heap, and Jaron Tager. Also including the type-treatment I created for the show. So thrilled to see my piece up on this site.
