I just completed this logo for a friend who wants to open a cantina here in Central Florida. It's still in the early planning stages so we'll see where it goes. I used a southwestern color scheme and then placed an amber shape in the "U" of cactus to represent beer. He really liked the loose, flat style of illustrations I've done for other projects so I applied that style here to the typographic solution I designed for his logo. This project was done with a combination of Adobe Illustrator and Indesign.

I created this poster as a submission for the 2010 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. Having attended the festival in the past, I feel this image really captures the essence of the event. As expected, I began with a series of sketches and color studies before completing the final drawing which I scanned and finished in Photoshop. The typography was all handcrafted to match the spirit of the festival.

Letters For Change

1 of 20, full-page illustrations that were recently commissioned by McGraw Hill in New York for a middle school history book called "Letters For Change". As usual I began with a large series of thumbnail sketches and color studies. The final digital files were created with paths and layers in Photoshop for a cut-paper look.
