Services and Skills

Hand-crafted, custom Illustration created with love to fit your needs. Versatile stylings and open-minded approaches, let’s tell your story together.

With over 8 years of experience working with some of the world’s biggest bands and intellectual properties, let’s work together in maximizing your return on your merch. I specialize in hand-crafted, limited edition posters and apparel designs and am dedicated to delivering fresh, on-trend designs as well as providing seamless production and delivery.

Retail shelves are competitive. You need to stand out. With powerful, eye catching design and illustration and a strong sense of retail design, let’s work together on your next packaging project. Whether it be a beer or wine label, food product, record sleeve or consumer good, I can make your product look as good as you know it is.

Your brand has a story. And it’s story needs the proper visual vehicle to deliver it’s message to the world. Whether you are launching a new product, looking to refresh your brands image or just develop a stronger customer connection, a well crafted identity and branding system is one of the most important investments you can make in any business and I would love to help you find yours.

I am a firm believer that nothing can brand a product, business or service like a custom, finely-finessed type treatment. Thoughtful, illustrative lettering is the bridge between good design and illustration. I work tirelessly with the typography in my projects and feel that unique personality and identity comes from carefully crafted illustrated lettering and typography. Do you have some words that need a look? LET’S DO IT!

Aside from managing and creating my own line of ever-growing apparel designs, I love licensing and selling my art to other brands to give their apparel line the creative injection that is missing. Band Tees, Street Wear, kids clothes, athletic wear… If you can wear it and it needs a design, I’d love to work with you.

I am always looking to expand my list of companies that I work with on a Licensing basis. Having successfully created products with great companies like Blue Q and Urban Outfitters, I would love to talk with you and figure how how we can bring our world’s together and make a wonder product together. I am very interested in textile, product, kitchenware, apparel and stationary opportunities, so please do reach out if this is something you would like to discuss.

As you can see, making lists of things is another area in which I am extremely proficient. If you have lots of words written on various pieces of paper and are looking for someone to neatly organize all of them in one central location, in a clean, easy to read, downward trending layout. I am your man.

pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis

According to the internet, that is the longest word in the Dictionary. It is an obscure term ostensibly referring to a lung disease caused by silica dust.

Call me crazy, but I sort of think that they surely could have chosen a shorter name for this disease. But what do I know, I have zero medical training or credentials.
