All American Rejects

I got an email out of the blue a while back to do some designs for The All American Rejects merch to sell in support of their new album. I don't really listen to them but was stoked nontheless at the opportunity. Here is the design that I did for them.
This ended up being printed on a black hoody. if you see this, you should buy it and send me a pic of you wearing it. I'll put together something nice for you.


Here are some alternate designs that they ended up not going with:

this one below is my personal favorite. Too bad it wasn't picked up.

budweiser brown crest

did this art a long time back (actually, in november of 2006) and just now saw it on the budshop website for sale. forgot about doing it until i was browsing and happened to notice it.


this was one of the first crest/heraldry/vine-y/whatever designs that i did. can tell now looking back on this one that i was still trying to figure it out and experiment. drawing that stuff was so time consuming. glad to see that trend isn't as big as it once was.

ART SHOW!

so, i have this piece in a group gallery opening on november 22nd in st. petersburg, florida. i'm pretty fucking excited about it. the list of artists involved is STACKED and i feel honored (and a little out of place) to be included. the show it pretty unique in how its set up... you can check out more info about it HERE. you can also buy/pre order my art screened on a tee for 18 bones at THIS LINK.


here's some process shots of my art-
1. pencil sketch


2. brush pen line work. did something different with this design... inked it on good paper- not just taped-together ripped, folded cheap copy paper like usual. i am going to put some watercolor swashes on it and actually make something finished outside of the computer. i'll post the finished painting/drawing/inking/whatever as soon as i get it together.


3. finished art. ready to be screenprinted for you. wink, wink.


i just want to say that I LOVE THIS CONCEPT for a gallery. screw art-elitist. screw expensive shit that hangs on walls (i mean, if you can work that hustle as an "artist", good for you) i just think its time to make art fun again. and affordable. this is going to be a party.

Shady Hoody

a fun project. available at pacsun. this hoody is crazy. i just drew the graphics (i did not design the cut-n-sew of the piece) but the garment has a face mask and cap visor built into it. crazy kids.

taped


this one was printed w/ some high density inks and looks like it could actually be peeled off of the tee. great job was done on the production side.
