Custom illustration I created for a 404 page. We were having a bit of a raccoon problem at the time.
I started doing a series of posters - one for each episode of Firefly. I wanted them to look a little like retro movie posters, with a Forbidden Planet kind of vibe. So far I'm up to Jaynestown.
You can purchase Firefly posters from the shop, or other rando merch like tote bags and framed prints from my society 6 page.

The Train Job
After reading yet another job description looking for UI Rock Stars, and Design Wizards, and Programming Unicorns, I illustrated this CSS Ninja. Even Ninjas need coffee to deal with CSS.
I thought it'd be fun to make a card game out of them and call it Startup Quest. But apparently, Startup Quest is already a business (it's an entrepreneurship training program in Florida).
Jason Chandler asked me why I hadn't made a Frustrators shirt yet, and so I made this Frustrators shirt. Inspired by their song "Brown Mercury Comet."
Let it Go
I pulled some lyrics that I really liked from a White Wives song called "Let it Go." Not to be confused with the hit song from Disney's Frozen.
I wanted to work on illustrating people (and making those illustrations actually look like specific people). I happened to have a magazine with Billie Joe Armstrong on the cover, so I used that and Frankensteined together a few other reference photos to get it set up the way I wanted.
So now I have this illustrated portrait that is not at all stalkery, Mr. Amstrong, honest. I'm a big fan of your work, sir, please don't call the police.
I made this as a one-off for myself. PHGP made a point of not releasing much merch, and encouraged fans to DIY it. So I designed this graphic inspired by their song New Blood.
Bobby Joe Ebola Book Cover
My art direction for this was "can you draw us a rabbit smoking a cigarette?" And my answer was "yes, of course I can." While they ultimately went with a different cover for the book, I did end up doing several interior illustrations for it.
The guys started playing vintage baseball - effectively, baseball played by 1840s rules - and John wanted to dress the part. So he grew out a Snidely Whiplash mustache. He then declared that he was never, ever doing it again, so I best get some photo documentation. We set up the studio gear in the living room, and as you can see, he took it very seriously. I also made sure to get some good shots of the 'stache in action.
Festival Unrecord Poster
Illustrated poster for Unrecord's Festival Game. See the post on their website.
The idea was to have music bloggers create their dream festival, picking a location, MC, and bands from a few different categories.
Carney + Co
I spent the afternoon taking some behind the scenes shots at Carney + Co in Greensburg for them to use on their website and social media accounts.

The site was finished shortly before their presentation in Budapest. As such the binary info in data translates to "Budapest? More like BudaBEST."
