Here is the limited Edition T-Shirt design I did for the Mindcrack Minecon London excursion. Check them out on twitter here… https://twitter.com/mindcracklp
The London Eye replete with Mindcrack logo. The ferris wheel cars are inspired by Minecraft blocks. See if you can spot our favorite Doctor’s vehicle of choice as well 🙂
There were a few versions both of which were posted here…
The PlayOn Con was back camping again this year.
The idea for the premium shirt was a Van Helsing inspired monster hunter hero type for Uncle Sam. This was done in a dutone green for a spooky look on a dark base shirt.
On the camp shirt look for a few easter eggs:
- That’s No Moon
- Marshmallowy goodness
- 7th year on dice
This was a blast to work on. It was the meeting of church, kids’s choir, theater, gaming, design, chip-tunes, family, robots, illustration, and the 80’s into one explosive performance at World Outreach Church
I did the major creative direction, illustration, stage design, costume design, and even taped all the drums neon. It was fantastic! My wife choreographed all the dance and special performances. She did a great job!
Minute 2:45 is my favorite part — BOSS BATTLE!
I think I am going to to stick with my mezzotint series a tad longer and start doing fun game focused prints. Here is one to remind summoners the importance of buying wards in League of Legends.
Blackbird commissioned me to produce the marquee poster for their upcoming show of David Mamet’s Oleanna. Inspired by poster designs of the 1960s, specifically Saul Bass, the central theme of the show is the power struggle and miscommunication between men and women. The apple core speaks to the educational setting that the play takes place within, the yelling male and female faces show the power struggle, and the caption spells it out -The Original Power Play.
I am designed the logo for a campaign celebrating the arts in Nashville called “Mozart in Music City“. This is a partnership between BlackBird Theater, Nashville Symphony, Nashville Opera, and Lipscomb University.
The logo is based on varying handwriting of Amadeus Mozart on a music scale. See if you can spot the guitar which is usually mandatory when you use the term Music City. 😉
There has been a lot of charity activity going on at work, which of course is a good thing. The next one up is a simultaneous chess match. A renowned chess champion, CHALLENGES all HCA Nashville-based employees in a SIMULTANEOUS chess exhibition versus 100 people. Pretty cool concept, and so the poster was born. I designed it as a companion piece to the golf poster collateral I did recently.
The guys at the top Minecraft podcast – The Shaft – will be releasing a 100th episode. The episode is complete with an interview with Minecraft creator Markus Persson aka Notch.
Here is the poster I illustrated to help celebrate the show. I recreated the Minecraft blocks as vector high resolution quality, the Minecraft HUD into vector, and of course the characters.
I was contacted by Wes and Greg at the BlackBird Theater company to do a teaser illustration for a 2 person show they will be adding to their 2013 season. It will be Oleanna by David Mamet – whuch opens Jun 6 at Lipscomb University here in Nashville.
The idea was to portray the complex themes in Oleanna written lightly on a blackboard. The title is scratched across after the middle area was suddenly wiped away, to show the intensity of the writing of Mamet. It promises to be a very interesting show.
This is a teaser poster and other collateral I did for our company’s golf outing. The idea is to maximize the impact the imagery can have on an already busy and crowded cork board. Hopefully the simplicity and clear imagery will be more readable. The idea is to use typography and simple imagery. I had fun experimenting with the font typefaces and mezzotint coloring solution.
