T-shirt illustration I created for Great Lakes Graphics featuring a dive bar home to shady looking sharks, slutty mermaids, and deep-sea diving gorillas.
The design is black and white on the shirt until the wearer goes out into the sun, and the colors are revealed!

Owner of the Heavenly brand resort hired me to create this t-shirt design for his ranch, illustrating his likeness and his dog chilling on the beach in a hammock.
I tried to render this one a little differently than my previous beach designs, using a softer pencil for the lineart instead of a thicker, chunkier ink brush and then doing more of the rendering in the coloring stage. I like the result!

Client:
Coconut Joe’s Sun-care Products

Description:
Coconut Joe’s hired me to update their branding, and create this colorful, beach-themed t-shirt design to promote their line of natural sun-care products.
After we redesigned their logo, we conceptualized a few different beach t-shirt designs before moving forward with this illustration focusing on a sea turtle swimming in a reef. The client wanted a fun, light-hearted look that they could take to conventions and sell in their shops.

Beach Shrimp Festival T-Shirt Design

Client:
Model Tees

Fun limited color silkscreen t-shirt I created for a Shrimp Gumbo festival in Alabama featuring a handsome shrimp serenading a beautiful shrimps and the rest of the beach-goers.
The design was a fun challenge because the client liked my colorful full-color beach designs, and wanted something similar. But we could only use a limited silk-screen palette. I used halftones to cheat on some colors. We chose to draw the scene at night to make it unique to the previous year’s designs.

Wasaga Beach

Description:

I created this poster illustration of a motorcycle on the beach for the Wasaga Beach Rally in 2016.

Never been to the beach, but it looks amazing – it’s part of the longest fresh water beach in the world, located in Ontario Canada.  The rally is one of the biggest around apparently – it was a thrill to be hired to do the t-shirt.

4’20 Somewhere Parrot t-shirt

Client:

Bongjour

Description:

I illustrated this t-shirt design for Bongjour in conjunction with the popular Chief Greenbud to celebrate his song “It’s 4:20 Somewhere,” a parody of Jimmy Buffet’s tune.  The design was printed as full-color direct to garment.  For this design, I tried a new technique:  instead of inking the design, I just scanned in my pencil drawing (which was done on paper) and colored the piece underneath the pencils.  I’m pretty happy with the result – it gives it a more realistic, and vibrant, and softer feel.

Surfing Shark T-Shirt Illustration

Client:
Great Lakes T-Shirt Company

Description:
I created this t-shirt illustration of a surfing cartoon shark for a children’s line of beach themed clothing. The shirt uses special inks that only appear in the sunlight – so when indoors, the shirt appears as just the lineart. Once you take the shirt outside, the colors magically appear. It’s a really cool effect.

Client Testimonial:
Looks great, Look forward to getting it printed!

Caricatures of DIY TV celebrities on the beach

DIY Celebrity Caricatures on the Beach

This is a T-Shirt illustration I created for a new brand called The Reno Life, which celebrates and promotes the work of several DIY TV personalities. The illustration features caricatures of DIY celebrities Anitra Mecadon, Jason Cameron, Chris Grundy, Jeff Devlin, and Stephen Fanuka on the beach. It was a challenge to fit all of these characters into such a tight space, while still keeping them recognizable.
