PITY SEX AUSTRALIAN TOUR TEE

Pity Sex is going down under in 2014, and decided to print some tees to make it official. As you can see, it’s very official. Using the design I previously created for the flier, we went ahead and made some changes and got these bad boys printed up at (where else) VGKIDS!

Having worked at VGKIDS for awhile now, I know that there are a few elements that can make a printed tshirt, your favorite tshirt. First, you start with the tshirt itself. One of our favorites is a super soft cotton tee from Next Level. Slap on some waterbased ink that soaks into the shirt, is soft to the touch (did I mention environmentally friendly?) and voila! 

Here are a few pictures taken on press and the finished result. Enjoy!

THE ESPRESSO BAR - STICKER

One of my favorite things about working at a great print shop like VGKIDS is the luxury of seeing one of my designs being printed. From the artwork, to the screens, to the press, to the cutter, I get to watch my doodles multiply.

It makes it even better when said job is for a place as fantastic as The Espresso Bar. Their coffee is top notch and Sandy & his brew crew are the most delightful. This place often doubles as an impromptu studio for me most weekends, so it’s a real heart melter being asked to make such fun work for them!

Here you can see a guide through the process of making the artwork, to the printing,  to the final product. Hope you enjoy!

Made some fliers for Pity Sex shows in June.

I am going to admit it this one time: I am really proud of these fliers. It was such a great brush / typography experience and I am really happy with the outcome.

Yay.

MAMA, JACOB & GAVIN
A friend from the town where I grew up, asked me to make a doodle I once drew, into more of a completed piece. I did this with ink and colored pencil.

THE BOWTRUCKLE
As a Harry Potter nerd, I (obviously) own Magical Creatures and Where To Find Them. The other night while watching DH1+2 with Brennan and Sean, I whipped out said book and decided to draw from a page. I chose The Bowtruckle. 
The Bowtruckle is immensely difficult to spot, being a hand-sized, insect eating, tree dweller with long sharp fingers (two on each hand), brown eyes, and a general appearance of a flat-faced little stickman made of bark and twigs, which serves well as camouflage in its natural habitat.

The Bowtruckle can be found in western England, southern Germany, and certain Scandinavian forests. A Bowtruckle serves as a tree guardian for its home tree, which is usually a tree whose wood makes wands (such as Wiggentree). The twig-like fingers are well adapted for digging out wood lice in trees, and can also be used as a weapon against a foe when aimed at the eyes. It is generally a peaceful creature, but will become violent if anything threatens its tree, or even to itself. To take leaves or wood from a Bowtruckle’s tree, one would have to offer it wood lice or fairyeggs as a distraction.

ANDI WEST PHOTOGRAPHY

This is a hand drawn logo made for Andi West, a photographer based out of Portland, Oregon. She wanted to include the area she’s based out of in the logo. Turns out, her names lend perfectly to the North West.

I used a sample of her work, a portrait she took of a friend.

Check out her fantastic work!
