I was hired by a fabric pot manufacturer for growing plants to create a t-shirt for their conventions featuring this hipster bear character we came up with, holding one of their fabric pots.  They wanted something that displayed their product in a way that people would want to wear, even if they weren’t familiar with the product.  This was printed with direct-to-garment full-color printing. They were kind enough to send me a shirt, and it turned out great!

Client:

Boy Scouts of America

Description:

I was thrilled recently to work with Boy Scouts of America illustrating their Bear, Wolf, and Tiger mascots for a catalog that went out to all troops nationwide.  We created illustrations that blended real studio photos of kids in Boy Scouts gear, and drawn into a comic book background.   The marketing team hired me to reinvent the existing mascot illustrations in my own style. I was a Cub Scout long ago, so it was a lot of fun to leave a little mark on the organization.

Comic Book Zombie Splash Page

Custom illustration I created for a website splash page and fantasy game. I was asked to draw the game’s heroes, who are infected with a mutating virus, along with their sidekicks: a zombie jaguar and a zombie bear. The client and I invisioned a world where not even the plant-life has escaped being mutated by the zombie virus.
I created this in Manga Studio and Adobe Photoshop.

Cartoon mascot illustration of a Bear playing playing basketball I created for Great Dane Graphics and their children’s sports line.  The graphic will be used for T-Shirts and other products for kids’ sport teams.  The client wanted these designs to be fully rendered digital paintings, without lineart, which is not the typical style I work in.  I’m happy with how they turned out.

Benner-Elementary-Mascot

Mascot design and illustration for Benner Elementary School I created in conjunction with Lake Creative.

Shannon Lake and I were tasked with reinventing their bear mascot into something fun and colorful that the children could identify with.  This was a really fun personal project, because my son Michael just started Kindergarten at this school.  It’s a really cool feeling to walk in the school and see kids here and there wearing the T-Shirt.  Michael loves wearing it, though it’s a couple sizes too big for him!
