T-Shirt Ideas

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

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.

Endor Landscape

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."

Reproduction "Gotham Electric" Jet Engine Advert

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.

Green Dragon Airways Airline Poster

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.”

My Attempt at Drawing a De Havilland Comet

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.

First Attempt at Reproducing a Comic Book Cover

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.

Sailboat Poster Replica

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.

Sasquatch National Park Map V3.0

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.

#IBelieve

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
