This is an illustration for a Lecture Series on the book Ecclesiastes. I am often approached by the Pastor of FRBC to design images and backgrounds for his sermon series. In keeping with his title, RESTLESS, the design illustrates King Solomon’s tiring journey of doing whatever he pleased under the sun to find meaning in life. The illustration, I think, has a restless quality about it.
This image was developed as a logo for the FRBC church building. I conducted research on Church-related logos and found the majority of them to be icons. I decided it best to use the steeple as the main focus. As an illustrator, I thought I would apply a modern look to the actual FRBC steeple by mimicking a photo I’d taken of the structure.

“Rapscallion” is a t-shirt design I created for Eye Pi Apparel. I’d answered an ad looking for shirt designers, and felt I could apply my half-decade’s experience in designing for apparel to the position.

“War and Peace” was originally done as a simple illustration. I added the words when the design was selected as t-shirt design. The image may be a bit harsh for some to wear but I am proud of the artwork. This piece will one day become a poster print.
Punk rock has been my muse and my preferred musical genre of choice since I was a teenager. It is THE reason I became a graphic artist. I felt it necessary to compose a series of illustrations in honor of my favorite punkers. Joey Ramone epitomizes that category. Hey! Ho! Let’s Go.
Joe Strummer is by far my favorite artist to have come out of the early punk scene; so much so, I named my son Strummer. From Clash to Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros, there isn’t one recording accredited to him that I dislike. Being an artist/designer living paycheck to paycheck, I figure there’s no better fit for my situation than the tune of “Career Opportunities.” Joe Strummer and the Clash are, and always will be, timeless.
