Henry Smith (designer extraordinaire and volleyball champion), commissioned a 'welcome to my house' painting for his new house .... given his and Bryn's European heritance, I opted for a quasi-Medieval German theme (the banner at the top translated to English reads 'Enter at your own risk' ... the type on Henry (the alchemist's shirt) reads 'we promise not to bite'. Piece is acrylic paint, ink, white-out on 1/8 masonite. Great piece for a great friend and his new family .... and especially for COOPER the min-schnauser - great guy! (dog) ...
CAR SHOW POSTER - remember when the Concours d' Elegance show was located on the U of U Campus? Always a great show of some amazing vintage cars ... this poster was created for just one of those shows. Photography and computer graphics - not my usual style but I think it turned out very handsomely ... graphics were also applied to banners, t-shirts, commemorative brochures as well!
CONVENTION TREASURE MAP and DIRECTIONS. Worked with Jeff Olsen at BOWG on this one ... they needed a Pirate treasure map for a convention function. Great to make, loved working with BOWG on this and other projects too! Map was hand drawn and distressed using and old iron and Rit dyed water.
THE OTHER TWO OLYMPIC COVERS for CITY WEEKLY - over a period of three weeks, CW has me create a new cover for the period that the Winter Olympics were in SLC ... a bit cynical, but interesting messages nonetheless. Used found images and found type and some illlustration of my own ... received one of 10 Copper Ingots at the AIGA 100 show that year. Loved working with City Weekly, they were so great to pretty much let me do 'my thing' (whatever that is ...).
