Illustration Throw Back

Illustration Throw Back

Here is an illustration commission I finished up this time last year. This ended up become part of T Shirt design for a local company.

One of the types of hand crafted illustrations I can create for you, your business or story.

Nature is happening all around us. Go get some.

Break on Through

Break on Through

Double board break via step behind sidekick. Took some technique adjustment to get through two boards. I wanted to be too close. I now realize the need to take a step further back to create the space to travel and create more velocity. Sometimes we need to take a step back to break through what’s holding us back. This snow day is a good forced hand by nature to do just that.

Riparian Turtle Moodboard

Riparian Turtle Moodboard

Here’s a moodboard for a current logo /branding project I’m working on for Blue Earth Planning, Engineering & Design.
🌎
The moodboard is part of the collaborative design process where we select inspirational imagery that represents the mood we are looking to evoke with the brand design. The imagery is not intended to be taken too literally and just helps establish some boundaries within which to focus our creative work.
💦
As the client is a unique values based hydroengineering firm, we’ve focused on drawing our primary inspiration from riparian topography and turtle imagery. Through our detailed discovery process we’ve identified these as our key elements.
🐢
Stay tuned for more to come!
