Description:

A patriotic American military themed Russ bus logo featuring an eagle and soldiers parachuting with guns.The design was for apparel and a vehicle wrap for the russefeiring tradition.  If you haven’t heard of it, basically russefeiring involves an entire class of Norwegian students renting a bus (a Russebuss), painting every inch of it with really cool street art, and then partying in it night and day for an entire month during graduation.  The different classes wear their designs ever where they go as they clash with rival classes.  I’ve done a bunch of these now, and really enjoy it.

Here is how I designed Gritty, the new Flyers Mascot. The attention this has been getting is humbling, exciting, and sometimes terrifying! I'd like to thank Character Translations Inc. for their hard work bringing my drawing to life, the great Art Directors at the Flyers who made this such an enjoyable process, the man inside the Gritty suit, and of course the fans who have shared their opinions with me (good and bad). I'm humbled to have been a part of this process, and I sincerely believe that Gritty's going to earn your respect.#philadelphiaflyers @grittynhl #nhl #hockey #mascot #characterdesign #characterdesigner #conceptartist #mascotdesign #characterart

This was my design for the offical Philadelphia Flyers Mascot, Gritty that the team hired me to illustrate. You can see that the costume company, Character Translations Inc, had to make some modifications to the face to make it work as a costume. It's been pretty overwhelming to see all the attention the mascot has been getting. I'm really proud to have been a part of this – The Flyers even bought my family tickets to a game in October, so I can meet Gritty in person!#philadelphiaflyers @grittynhl #nhl #hockey#mascot #characterdesign #characterdesigner #conceptartist #mascotdesign #characterart

We also created a one-color foil version too.

Always enjoy working with these guys – they don’t take themselves too seriously, and it’s exactly the kind of music I grew up with. It’s often very tricky to get so much of the scene into such a tiny space, but I’m happy with the composition we came up with. I love the crow chewing up the Union Jack.
