I’ve been kicking around the idea of a Colorado themed T Shirt shop. Here are my current designs. Let me know what you think!
Visit Endor Travel Poster created in Adobe Illustrator. I tried some different foliage and landscape techniques I've seen from some of my favorite artists like the Cruschiform Studio, Brian Edward Miller at the Orlin Culture Shop, and Matt Carlson.
Using the pen tool in Illustrator, the AT-ST was painstakingly traced from another Endor-themed poster for sale on Amazon.
Probably the most complex piece I've attempted in Adobe Illustrator. Based off a superb work by Matt Carlson called, "Lookout" and featured at Dribbble.com here: <a href="https://dribbble.com/shots/2571898-Lookout" rel="noreferrer nofollow">dribbble.com/shots/2571898-Lookout</a>
This is my first attempt at employing "stipple brushes."
A vintage large letter style postcard made using most of my previous Star Wars artwork. Created entirely in Adobe Illustrator.
A reproduction of a vintage General Electric advert; created in Adobe Illustrator.
I used a lot of the pen tool, feathering, grain, and gaussian blur effects to recreate this iconic ad.
If you hunt for this on google and Pinterest you'll notice there are actually two versions of this poster; one has a lot more detail on the jets, clouds, and terrain. I opted to reproduce the more stylized version.
The work reminds me a lot of Joseph Binder’s style, but I have not been able to determine the artist on the original. Anyway, here is my faithful recreation.
I was trying to capture a vintage comic book cover art feel for this project. I recycled the Albatross biplane I used in some previous work, (which is itself based off a beautiful oil painting I found on pinterest.)
I created another airline poster for my fictional, “Great Plains Airways” in Adobe Illustrator.
Created entirely in Adobe Illustrator. I used a lot of feathering, gaussian blur, and grain effects to produce this fictional cover art for what was a real magazine many decades ago.
I created this vintage style comic book cover based off the old 1955 pulp comic book series, "Aces High." The series was apparently short-lived; lasting just five issues before it was cancelled. Their cover art was inspiring though and led me to creating this piece.
Still having fun recreating vintage style airline posters from days of yore. Here’s my latest creation; an advert for a fictional “Green Dragon Airways.”
Based off a vintage Canadian Pacific Airways poster and recreated in Adobe Illustrator from scratch. My version has the airline renamed as, "Trans Pacific Airways."
The aircraft depicted is the De Havilland Comet; the world's first jetliner.
This piece was modeled after an old New Zealand Airways Corporation poster; my version created entirely in Adobe Illustrator from scratch.
I’m a huge fan of the artwork surrounding the “Golden Age of Aviation.” Here’s a piece I did this week based off an old Lufthansa Airlines poster.
I’ve been trying some different styles and techniques, while working to produce more complex pieces with the Adobe Illustrator software. Here is a recent project I completed attempting to recreate an outstanding bit of cover art for a comic book character called “Lobster Johnson.”
I’m unfamiliar with the comic book industry and just happened to stumble across some great aviation comic book art while researching those old vintage airline posters from the 1950s and 1960s.
I’m a huge fan of the Orlin Culture Shop and the artist there: Brian Edward Miller. His latest commissioned work was so good I had to try my hand at recreating it in Adobe Illustrator. While my version is definitely an inferior copy, I was pleased with the results and continued to learn some new tricks on shading and textures in the Adobe Illustrator software.
Made this for fun and practice in Adobe Illustrator; feedback appreciated!
Had some fun making this vector badge this morning.
I went all in on V3.0 trying to replicate a national park style map and used a real map for Grand Teton National Park from: https://www.yellowstonepark.com/park/official-grand-teton-national-park-map-pdf as a guide to improving my fictional "Sasquatch National Park." Lots of references to westerns, action films, video games and classic 80s movies for many of the placenames. I went for humor on the pictograms, so they differ slightly from actual government produced maps! Constructive criticism always welcome; thanks! This cartographic work was created entirely in Adobe Illustrator.
I decided to have some fun creating a national park style infographic map…..created in Photoshop and Illustrator.
I’ve always found the persistent support and humor for Sasquatch amusing, and decided to make my own contribution to the cause! #IBelieve #Sasquatch #BigFoot #Colorado
