Beach Shrimp Festival T-Shirt Design

Client:
Model Tees

Fun limited color silkscreen t-shirt I created for a Shrimp Gumbo festival in Alabama featuring a handsome shrimp serenading a beautiful shrimps and the rest of the beach-goers.
The design was a fun challenge because the client liked my colorful full-color beach designs, and wanted something similar. But we could only use a limited silk-screen palette. I used halftones to cheat on some colors. We chose to draw the scene at night to make it unique to the previous year’s designs.

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.

This is a fun illustration I created of a tiki man riding a dirtbike for the brand Accidental Broadcast. The brand centers around a popular Youtube personality, Kalani Prince, who films the island of Hawaii from the back of his dirtbike.

Kalani gave me a lot of freedom with the design. Since this was the brand’s first design, I thought it would be a good idea to introduce his personality as this Tiki character, with an attractive hula girl hanging tight.

I also designed the a logo to match the design for his brand.
