These are some old drawings and graphics I made. Some on contract, some for fun. I didn't know where to put them, so here they are.
I love taking an existing logo and putting a specific spin on it. It's technically challenging and easily causes chuckles!
A bad scan can become ...
a lovely picture with the right PhotoShop skills
This image was created by me, inspired by Bobby Hedge, a fellow RT I went to school with at CHRV-CHS
The first logo parody I ever did - incorporating the "ArtLung" name in the form of Pasadena's Art Center College of Design - a place me and my pal Chris Greazel always wanted to go to school.
This is an original image I put together as a bit of a joke. It is an homage to my romance with Jennifer. She had told me that her favorite cereal was Cocoa Krispies.
I scanned the CK box, then a photo of the two of us.
I used the layers extensively, as well as the pen tool to accurately select and composite the different areas of the image.
She laughed and liked it very much.

It started as a black & white fax. I recreated it in Illustrator 7, saving it as an eps file which I then imported into Flash 2. I tweaked the colors and saved everything as symbols to give myself maximal flexibility. Once I got it how the client wanted it, I exported a series of 24-bit color PICTs. These were then batch processed to GIF in DeBabelizer. Timing was perfected in GifBuilder.

Logo design for the San Diego Public Library Staff Association.
These are never-used logos I designed with a combination of scans of etching, conversion to vector, Illustrator with Plug-in Effects, and even some tweaking in CorelDraw! I was very new to professional work in design, and I"m quite proud of these designs.
