I was approached by Cristina Dunseth to help make her 1 year wedding anniversary gift something special. Her husband brews his own beer, and she was getting some letter pressed 24oz beer labels made but also wanted to get some posters and T-Shirts done up. The artwork was printed without knockouts, so we achieved a three color effect by printing on top of the white in some spots and directly on the paper or t-shirt in other spots. I also found out that the poster was submitted to the HOW Poster Design Contest! So you might here more about this print in the future.
Update! While mostly focused on the lables, the poster is shown over at Lovely Packages!

Just some fun marker doodles, I've been playing with my Copic markers lately trying to learn them as a coloring medium. I haven't figured out the blending marker yet but hope to get a better handle on them soon.

Inside the rainbow where bear has never been before. Never before now.
This is my first submission to Threadless for their Tron Legacy challenge. There's some great designs, and mines really a parody playing of the 80's time frame, mixing Care Bears with Tron. It may take a couple days to get approved but please check it out, and, if you like it vote it up via the link below!

This lovely Wedding Suite was printed here at The Pull by Laura Trimmell, of CuriousDoodles, and myself for the Watson wedding.
Laura designed them and I helped print them. We used a combination of printing techniques, including inkjet for the small detailed txt on the back of the RSVP's, to Silk screening for the front of the RSVP's and the actual invites and even stamping for the envelopes. They are featured on the Oh So Beautiful Paper blog right now if you want to see more, and of course you can see more of them at Laura's Blog.
And as always if you have something fun you'd like to print, be sure to check out my DIY ScreenPrinting section.

I've been working on a new t-shirt design that I'm thinking of submitting to a t-contest site. Figured I'd see if any one had any comments/suggestions before I move ahead. The concept is pretty simple, even monsters can have nightmares... It's a 3 color design, intended to be printed on an AA Slate colored t-shirt. Do you like the colors? Would you wear it? Thanks!

A while back I made a post of some big foot drawings, that eventually became the Big Foot Activity Book! These Activity books were commissioned for Matt and Jessica Watsons wedding reception and are part of a larger body of custom prints and artwork. Each book features an illustrated day in the life of Big Foot as he try's to be on time for their big day. The tale is told over 8 colorable pages and features a custom word search. They were made available with crayons for the children in attendance at their reception.
The book's cover was printed out via lazer printer on letter sized Green Grocer's Brown Bag Paper, and the contents on plain letter sized, 28lb Hammermill txt paper. The book was then saddle stitched and folded for a final size of 8.5" x 5.5".
I really enjoyed making these custom books, if you have any illustration needs, be sure to email me!
