Vespa Illustration

This was a personal challenge. I wanted to push myself to the limits with my illustration skills, and draw the most realistic thing I could. Drawing rust, dents, and the old age of this Vespa was a challenge. This was a break away from the clean, and an emersion in the depth of an application to produce the extraordinary.

Game Design

This piece was a lot of fun. It really took several different skills to get the whole thing together. After the conceptual phase and deciding what kind of game to do there were many other issues. Figuring out the rules was a fun puzzle. From building the playing pieces, to designing the cards, to developing the packaging; this was a well rounded piece.

Kawasaki Ninja Illustration

My original attempt at purely realistic Adobe Illustrator drawing. Sadly the file was lost in a hard drive melt down. This piece was the inspiration for the Vespa I drew. I had to out do myself, even though this drawing recieved a lot of praise.

Pabst Blue Collar Campaign

Once a year Fort Mason holds The San Francisco International Beer Festival. I designed a series of Posters depicting Pabst Blue Ribbon as the beer of the working class. As Pabst Blue Ribbon is one of the cheaper beers on the market, I advertised it as a beer for the working class. Designed using a Russian Constructivist layout and theme.

Kamel Red

Designing for Camel cigarettes, Kamel Red line. Kamel Red has the beauty of packaging this series in a some what constructist theme. Camel also has a reputation for allowing new designs. I took the whole concept and took it one step further. Kamel Reds - fully Constructivist. It was an obvious solution.

Book Binding, Type Layout, and Illustration

In this book I came up with a proposal for a different way to manage our waste. Instead of taking our waste somewhere, recycling some of it and piling up the rest I proposed to use an eco friendly chemical that would dissolve the trash turning it into oxygen.
