Client:
Honesty Seeds

Description:
Honesty Seeds, a cannabis seed grower, and distributor hired me to create a fun seed character for their new logo to drive their packaging and marketing.
We had a lot of fun exploring different attitudes and poses for the character, and ended up going with something friendly and a bit goofy. I used a traditional font and banner design to give it an organic feel.

Description:

Here is another T-Shirt I designed in a series of marijuana strain related illustrations – this one celebrates Grand Daddy Purps, by illustrating him as a purple magical old man wearing suspenders.  Drawn in Manga Studio, and separated for limited color silk-screen using halftones.

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.

Chem Dawg Marijunana T-Shirt

Client:

Kellen Garey

Description:

T-Shirt illustration I created of a mutated Chem Dawg with three heads for a marijuana-themed apparel line.  Each shirt in the collection celebrates a different strain.  The client wanted me to illustrate a big crazy mutated, and glowing dog standing in a spilled container of toxic waste.  I thought it would be funny to have each of the three heads to be a different dog breed with a different personality.   More to come in this series! This design was created for direct-to-garment silk-screening.

Description:

T-Shirt illustration I created for a marijuana-themed apparel line.  Each shirt in the collection celebrates a different strain.  This was the first design, called “Sour Diesel,” in which we depicted a bunch of Sour Patch Kids hi-jacking a big diesel truck.  I had the idea of putting a melted sour patch kid on the grill of the truck.  More to come in this series!

Description:

I was very excited to work on this T-Shirt design because it was so unlike anything I had worked on before. The concept and subject matter, was quite different for me, and I enjoyed the opportunity. The design was also limited to only two colors, which presented its own challenges, and forced me to have to rely on the line-art alone to tell the story. We were very pleased
