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.
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.

The ever busy Dead Workers Party has another podcast underway. It is called “Core Elements” and will focus on gaming as a whole ( read not only video games).
Wes Wilson over there asked for a poster to be drawn up with a turn of the century tinkering feel. I got to do this in the Art Nouveau style, which was great fun to investigate. Art Nouveau has alot to offer though it seems to be passed up buy the more familiar Art Deco and propaganda style posters of the early century. Also for part of this was a logo .
Have a gander at the sketch, the finished poster (which will be available in print soon), the logo, and a close up for vanity sake 🙂
This was for a Print Smart campaign to bring awareness of printing less, saving ink, paper and use other means to deliver content.
Immediately I was inspired by alarmist retro posters and went with the dripping CMYK pools of ink spilling from the printer. Sadly the images was deemed a little too “extreme” as something “safer” was used instead 🙂 Oh well enjoy!
Here is the workpiece I had to swear to secrecy until Control Point episode 100 could be official released. Listen to it and enjoy the show and artwork together!
This is also the poster they gave away at the CPCon 03 New years extravaganza!
