Bunny and Face in Pacific Coast Style

Fun with working in the Pacific Coast Indian style, native to mostly Canadian and Alaskan territories. There is a distinct set of ovoid, feather, and connectors that identify it. I have been teaching myself the ropes of the style but definitely took liberties with the rabbit; the color palette gets a little treacherous.

I am enjoying a period of time making work for myself and exploring Minneapolis. An opportunity to collaborate with a couple of very skilled designers has also come up, and I am looking forward to hearing from them soon.

Senior Project Progress: Splash Page

Here is a splash page I illustrated for my senior project--redesigning classic novel, The Magus.
The subject matter has to deal with the Greek island and manor that the story takes place in. More progress to come soon.

Inuwashi Board

Hypothetical skate deck design for Element based on the idea of creating an updated Japanese scroll with neon colors. Golden Eagles (Inuwashi) rendered in the traditional Japanese style are my favorite, mine turned out a bit more comic-y.

Urban Outfitters Kudu Tunic

This is a hypothetical tunic/tshirt design for Urban Outfitters. I tried to capitalize off of the current infatuation with the occult (K▼L✝), tribal patterns, and power animals--trends with I think are all sparked by a similar interest. I am going to look in to producing this. I broke my promise to myself that I wouldn't use the pyramid cliche and regret nothing.

Also, I can't say I'm a James Blake fan, but this dubstep track is pretty much amazing

Redstamp Teen/Tween Girl's Birthday Invites

These are some invites for teen and tween girls (mostly tween) that are going to be available on the new Redstamp website soon. I find it stimulating designing within highly specific guidelines regarding font and color, it is like solving a puzzle.
