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.
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.
Abba’s Way expanded their father and child weekeneds from a son only to a daughter event as well named Father’s Delight. The illustration here is heavily inspired by the Sleeping Beauty Disney movie promotional and background artwork. I had a blast doing something so based in pure imagination and watercolor style tones.
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 🙂
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!
