Winning Season Russ Logo

Description:

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.

Angry Mahi-Mahi Fish T-Shirt Design


Client:

Great Lakes

Stylized angry mutant Mahi-Mahi fish I created for an apparel graphics company leaping from the water.

Robot Zombie Disc Golf Design


Client:

Discraft

Description:

Another fun design I created for the leaders of disc golf equipment, Discraft, of a crazed zombie cyborg, because cyborg’s are zombies, too!

We designed a full-color version, as well as a single color foil option. The discs have become collectors editions, and I’m always thrilled when Discraft sends me a box of the discs with my artwork on them. Really cool to see the art come to life!

Team Spirit Wrestling Singlet Apparel Design


Client:

Blue Chip Athletics

Description:

Blue Chip Athletics hired me to create this customize-able wrestling singlet apparel template they could offer to their different teams. I set up the design so that the team colors were easily modifiable and could be printed in limited color silk-screen to save cost. They were really thrilled with the result.

Evil Fish and Lure T-Shirt Design

Illustration I created for a new apparel line showcasing the lures by Rapala for fisherman.  The brand wanted something really edgy and dark, so we gave the fish a pretty menacing look.  It’s always a fun challenge taking on a detailed scene like this when limited to a smaller silk-screen palette.  This design was set up with halftones.

I was hired to illustrated this custom website background for a sports review outlet called 2BC. The client wanted a detailed illustration of a huge hockey fight in an arena. The illustration was set up so that the different hockey players and refs in the brawl could move along with the content of the site, independently of the background. I created the artwork in Manga Studio, and colored it in Adobe Photoshop.

Bluechip Athletics hired me to design and illustrate graphics for their Aggression apparel line for wrestlers. The first design was this evil gargoyle perched on a rooftop in a storm. Since the wrestling singlets are printed with dye-sublimation, I could design in full-color, and cover every inch of the fabric.

Graphic mascot illustration I created in Manga Studio and Photoshop of any angry wolf head, created for Great Dane Graphics.

Sports mascot illustration of an angry jaguar head

Jaguar Cartoon Sports Mascot

Custom illustration I created of an angry Jaguar head for sports mascots provided by Great Dane Graphics. Since much of my artwork is lineart driven, it’s fun to sometimes deviate from that style and explore digital painting a bit more. It can be tricky to translate my style into digital painting, but I tried my best by giving this jaguar a lot of character and attitude. This design was created in Adobe Photoshop and Manga Studio 5, and will be used for T-Shirts and uniforms. Available for licensing from Great Dane Graphics.

Zombie Lacrosse Player Mascot

Mascot character design I created of a Zombie lacrosse player for Great Dane Graphics.

I had created a set of zombie sports characters before for these guys and they were a big hit. We decided to approach this batch in a different style – more of a digital painting than the previous comic book style. That was a bit different for me, but I’m pleased with how they turned out.

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. We explored a few different sketch variations, and came up with this view, with the Honey-Badger reaching toward the viewer. I provided a full-color version for direct-to-garment printing and web use, as well as a simplified version for silk-screening.
