Turn the Radio Off

CD101 had their annual poster/calendar contest again this year and just like last year I entered it and made it to the final show. Also just like last year I was beat out by the same guy. That’s right, the same guy has won the last two years in a row–Can we please change the format so someone else can win? Anyways, this is my entry and I was really happy with my type treatment so I can at least show it off here.

Check out this years winner. Better luck next year eh?

Master of the Flying Guillotine

I’ve been playing around with building a flash video player that matches the site. Here’s what I came up with:

The video is the opening to the movie Master of the Flying Guillotine, one of my all-time favorite kung-fu movies. They just don’t make title squences like this anymore which got me thinking about some of my other favorites. I found some that you might be interested in.

To Kill a Mocking Bird (1962) - Saul Bass
Panic Room (2002) - The Picture Mill
Thank You for Smoking (2005) - Shadowplay Studio
Casino (1995) - Saul Bass
Charade (1963) - Maurice Binder
Catch Me If You Can (2002) - Florence Deygas
Alien (1979) - R. Greenberg

Heavy Pulp

So I’ve got a thing for good old fashioned pulp art. I love those old school cover illustrations filled with suspense, action, and drama but I’ve noticed lately a new style of pulp art out there in the form of heavy, computer-assisted, collage. It looks vintage but screams computer made. For practice, I decieded to try to make a collage in under 4 hours using whatever I could find through google images. Here’s the result, which turned out more like a crappy 1970’s spy movie poster than a 1940’s pulp cover. I’ll go back and add more nazis fighting snakes later.

Anyways, i just want to thank you for stopping by the site again. I hope 2007 is a fantastic year for each and everyone of you. Peace.

Station to Station

CD101 is a radio station in Columbus that tries really hard to be cool. Every year they have a calendar poster contest and the winner gets some cash and some free prints. After entering for the last two years I’ve realized that it’s more of a popularity contest then a design contest so I’m not sure if I’ll try again next year. Just so nothing goes to waste, I figured I’d share my poster design for 2006. If you notice a lot of the elements in it gave way to the over look and feel of this blog.

This reminds me — I really need to redesign this site because it’s getting pretty old and played out. I’m going to start working on a portfolio site as well that links to this. It will probably replace this URL but I’m not sure yet so stay tuned.

Across The Sea

Is summer over with yet? I don’t think I’ve ever hoped for a summer to move so fast in all my life. Let’s just say I’m looking forward to autumn (which is a beauty in Columbus) and the fresh snow of winter to fall and signify new beginings.

Time goes so slow.

Call Me Ishmael

It’s been crazy busy at work the past month and there isn’t any light at the end of the tunnel for another month or so. Let me just get it out of the way—I’m sorry for not updating this as much as I used to. Hopefully, I’ll be getting a new computer soon and I’ll be able to update this site more regularly with even crazier stuff and fresher graphics (like the one below).

Also, I’ve employed the help of my friend, Nik Braatz to start writing here as well. Nik is a long-time friend and true nerd so he should have plenty of things to talk about, like his toy collections or the time he met Jerry Only. The suspense is killing me.

Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart

It’s a little known fact that we all love Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart — but it’s true. I made this illustration in tribute to him. Someday this baby will be neatly tattooed between my shoulder blades and you can tell all your friends you know somebody that’s been down with The Hitman since day one. Larger version here.

Dangerously Cheesy

There are no words on wisdom or mystery on this one. I was just drawing and eating Cheetos. It’s not as cool as the World’s Largest Cheeto but I had fun making it so lay off! Have a great weekend everybody.

Bonus: Uncropped version right here.

Duel of the Iron Mic

Are you guys getting bored of this stuff yet? This here is just another color study of mine moving towards the old school muralistic graff look. If Iron Man and Samus Aran had a baby born in the 1980’s Brooklyn B-boy culture, I think this is what it would look like. Feel free to call me out on that.

Doc Doom is in the Room

How’s life? I’ve been pretty jammed up creative wise for the past few days so I decied to invest some time into creating some content for the site. Here’s a little something I’ve been playing on for a while. I made some desktop wallpapers out of it for both the mac and pc. Sorry, no 1280 x 1042. Also, I think it’s important to note that I didn’t draw the image of Dr. Doom. I’m not sure who did but whomever it was is fierce. I just scanned him in and colored him to match the rest of the comp. Better stuff is coming… peace.
