Chesapeake Bay Awareness Posters - facing the horrifying truth!

I did these with my friend David Pijor a while back, they are part of an Advertisement campaign raising awareness of pollution throughout the Chesapeake Bay area. The theme of the vintage b movie posters where used to a) hint at the horrifying truth that the Chesapeake Bay area is in danger of being a highly polluted and unlivable place and b) to grab people's attention. David cooked up the idea and asked me if I wanted to come on board, and of course I was there. Hope you guys dig em and they get the word out. We are currently discussing a print run, but we have to iron out some details, we'll keep you posted.

I'm back!!!

Hey guys and gals, sorry for the embarrassingly long wait. Things have been crazy on this end, trying to make a run at the art race instead of tripping over my feet. Alot of what I've been doing recently has been graphic design oriented, mostly logos and other designs. It's fun taking on challenges like these, but the kid inside me keeps telling me to take off the tie and suite and get back to the things that excited me when I was young, what I really want to do with these hands of mine. So off in Neverland I've been, and here are the first fruits of my visit: I'm redesigning some of my favorite childhood characters, starting with the one and only Peter Pan. I tried going for a wild child boy, very tribal: a nature boy. I also wanted to portray him as mischievous, so you can see the over sized belt, taken from Hook no doubt, along with some trophies: the Captain's fine hooks! Anyway, I'll be showing some more love here in the coming weeks. Thanks for the support guys, take care, and I'll talk to you guys soon. God bless -
