Pig Pimpin Muppets Parody T-Shirt

T-Shirt parody illustration I created of Kermit and Ms. Piggy hitting hard times, entitled “Pig Pimpin.” This was an illustration I created sometime ago, and I always loved the idea, but the execution was kind of flat. I decided to redraw it, and I’m really glad I did.

Graphic Wrap for Amusement Park Ride

Client:

Funland, Rehoboth Beach Delaware

Description:

A graphic wrap I illustrated for a ride at an amusement park. It’s always a privilege to work for Funland in Rehoboth Beach, because I’ve been going there every summer since I was two years old! The ride was an old motion simulator they picked up from an arcade, and it was showing its age. So they hired me to create a giant illustration that transformed the ride into a beach buggy. Illustrations of kids are in the windows on each side of the vehicle. I imagine this will be one of the most unique jobs of my career.

Animation for Band’s New Album Release

How do I describe this project? The NYC musicians, We Chief, hired me to create a simple animated image to advertise their new single. The concept was inspired from the title of the song, “Gyals From Brooklyn,” and they wanted the artwork to be minimalistic and colorful. Oh, and they also wanted three giant butts walking toward the Brooklyn bridge.
This was a lot of fun to illustrate, and even more fun to animate!

Honey Badger Wrestling Mascot

I was hired by a wrestling club to design a mascot for their apparel and website. Luckily, their mascot was one of the gnarliest creatures of the animal kingdom: the honey-badger.
