Creature Double Feature

Been working on this off and on for a few months (years, decades, whatever). Just having fun now filling it with monsters and explodey light...click to enrage.

Back to it

So I've been a pretty bad blogger. I've been working at Hasbro as a branding designer. What does that mean? It's about as free-form as you could imagine. Basically very much like what I was doing before, coming up with cool ideas, some logos, some illustration, only now I have some benefits I didn't, and lost some freedom that I'd had. And I'm creating loads of new work, all of which is super-confidential, blah.

...and I don't draw LEGO minifigs quite so much.

Here's a few updates on some projects I've been working on.

T-shirt for a Lovecraft-themed bike ride in Providence. It involves the Industrial Building which, as I researching the building for this image, I kinda fell in love with it. Beautiful deco design and structure. It currently sits entirely vacant while still dominating the downtown Providence skyline. 



And the last project I did for LEGO has finally made it to press. I believe this is in the second spread in the most recent Lego Club magazine: 




And lastly, this has been back-burnered for a while. Going to be very large, and I'm deciding what media to finish it with.:

Coma, the Doof Warrior, from Mad Max: Fury Road

Or as it should be called, Furiosa Road. I know I'm late to the game with the Mad Max fan art, but fuck it, I can't get enough of this movie.


And I know it's a bit cryptic, but yes it does say 'Mad Max' someplace. If you can find it, cool. If not, you can click here for the cheat.  

>Fun!<

Batman Fluxx Poster

Here's a poster I did a while back for DC Comics and Looney Labs. This has a fold in the middle and will also be used as a magazine ad, so there's a vertical space right up the middle where I didn't want anything vital. What I decided to do was to divide the space into two warring halves, good guys and bad guys. And like my Regular Show poster, I wanted to have the characters facing off with Fluxx cards in hand. Here's my AI vector sketch. 


Unfortunately, due to corporate guidelines, characters cannot touch product or logos (notice how close Robin gets to the Fluxx logo without touching). So realizing that, I decided the faceoff still worked, even without the cards. Here's what we ended up with: 


As always, click to enlarge.

Coma Doof

Rough idea for a Fury Road poster, and I know if I post it up here, I'll have some pressure on me to finish it...this is just thumbnails and computer lines thrown together. I think I don't want fire coming out of the guitar, maybe dripping fuel...we'll see.

Widing Cross Country

Got asked by my friend Eric Widing to design a logo for his cross-country charity bike ride. Few times have I had a logo that comes together so well. 

Originally, his request was for something called 'Eric Rides'. Instead, I suggested "Widing Cross Country", since he's RIDING cross country. Other options include "I AM Widing Cross Country", since he's Widing…and he's riding cross country.



Also, I wanted to use the map-shape of the US as a bicycle, but it just looked like a blob with wheels. It needed highlights to form the bicycle, so let me see what route he's taking, maybe I can somewhat trace the route...? He starts his ride in Boston and ends in San Francisco. Yes! So, the start and end of the bike highlights correspond with the start and end of his ride. 

And as an added bonus, the handlebars are a giant embodiment of Cape Cod. As I always say, you can tell when someone is from New England. Just have them draw a map of the US; they will draw Cape Cod the same size as they draw Florida. 

Ha!
