Jack Herer Cup 2018 Cannabis Pos

Jack Herer Cup 2018

Client:

Jack Herer Cup

Description:

The Jack Herer Cup is a cannabis rewards event held every year in Las Vegas to honor the “Emperor of Hemp”, the legendary cannabis rights activist himself, Jack Herer. It was a ton of fun to have the privilege to design this year’s poster featuring Jack Herer and Tommy Chong, surrounded by sentient marijuana buds. So excited to be part of this great event in Vegas, and possibly meet the legend Tommy Chong! I hope I did the portrait of Mr. Herer justice – a lot of pressure when dealing with such an important and revered figure!

Cheech and Chong Speed Inks

Silk-screen t-shirt illustration I created in tribute to the legendary Cheech and Chong from Up In Smoke with the characters as weed-eating, brain-smoking zombies.
I drew this artwork in Clip Studio Paint (Manga Studio 5) with a Wacom Cintiq. This is inspired by an illustration I created years ago – I wanted to test out my new skills, and design something that was more fitting for a t-shirt and filled out the front more (the previous design was too square). I also wasn’t happy with the likeness of the characters in the first design, so I drew everything from the ground up, and added a lot of elements from the films and really tried to do my best to capture the spirit of these marijuana legends.

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!

Here is another T-Shirt I designed in a series of marijuana strain related illustrations – this one celebrates Grand Daddy Purps, by illustrating him as a purple magical old man wearing suspenders.  Drawn in Manga Studio, and separated for limited color silk-screen using halftones.

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.

I was hired by a fabric pot manufacturer for growing plants to create a t-shirt for their conventions.  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.  Naturally, I went with a skull.  The design was set up for limited color silk-screen (I believe 4 colors).  They were kind enough to send me a shirt, and it turned out great!

Description:

T-Shirt illustration I created of a mutated Chem Dawg with three heads for a marijuana-themed apparel line.  Each shirt in the collection celebrates a different strain.  The client wanted me to illustrate a big crazy mutated, and glowing dog standing in a spilled container of toxic waste.  I thought it would be funny to have each of the three heads to be a different dog breed with a different personality.   More to come in this series! This design was created for direct-to-garment silk-screening.

Description:

T-Shirt illustration I created for a marijuana-themed apparel line.  Each shirt in the collection celebrates a different strain.  This was the first design, called “Sour Diesel,” in which we depicted a bunch of Sour Patch Kids hi-jacking a big diesel truck.  I had the idea of putting a melted sour patch kid on the grill of the truck.  More to come in this series!

Kush Canvas Mascot

Logo and mascot design I created for a marijuana themed printing business called Kush Canvas. The client asked me to create a friendly character made from a leafy bud. I designed the logo in three different versions: one-color, simple-color, and full-color, so that it could be used in many different applications.
