Zombie Condo?

zomcondo2A little concept sketch I started a while back for a Threadless T-shirt design. Finally got around to adding some more tweaks here and there. It will be interesting to see where this goes.

The Best of…

I can’t help but notice the growing trend of the “Best of…etc” articles popping up, particularly in the design field. Don’t get me wrong, most of them are very informative as well as inspirational and they have a home on my bookmark list, but it seems like it seems like a relatively new thing.

Or am I just slow on the uptake?

Some nifty CSS menu tricks

These came in hand for a recent project of mine.

Brotherly Love premiere.

I really had a great time at the movie premiere of ‘Brotherly Love’ which I proudly contributed producing and designing merchandise to help fund their future movie projects.
I was especially impressed with the print quality level of the shirts produced. It far exceeded my expectations of some cheap iron on process. ha!

What to be for Halloween??

Halloween has to be the second most procrastination prone holiday for me next to Christmas. I still haven’t decided what I’m going to be.

I’m thinking either Blackula or patient zero of a zombie virus. Basically just me in patient garb wearing a surgical mask and blood dripping from my eyes… hmmm… sounds cold.

Maybe I’ll dust off my priest outfit and be a man of the cloth again this year… a ZOMBIE man of the cloth! Why not?

Brotherly Love promotional sketches continued…

EMBLEM

Here is a more emblem/logo promo sketch for the Movie. It will be nice to see these shirts printed in time for the local premiere of the movie. Maybe then I’ll actually be able to make some money out of this. Either way, it’s been a fun project to work on!

Brotherly Love promotional concepts.

DETAILJust finished a couple of concept sketches for a friend’s indie movie. They’ll probably be used for t-shirts, posters, lunch boxes bumber stickers, I don’t know, just overall promotion I guess.
Brotherly Love is a unique zombie movie I was fortunate enough to sit in on during filming and despite the bugs, weeds, poison oak and ivy, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Rendering this particular piece was a challenge however. This is probably one of the most detailed vector illustrations I’ve done. I’m always paranoid my laptop will crash on me. Actually it did crash on me once, but I have long since gotten into the habit of saving every minute, but still.

I’m very impressed with the intuitive feel of Illustrator’s brush tool (coupled with the right settings). I personally cannot stand the pen tool and avoid it when I can.
Thank you, Adobe Illustrator and Wacom tablets!
