My first entry into the #patchgame was this limited run of 150 Texas patches. Texas established its independence from Mexico in 1836 and has been inspiring artists, musicians, politicians, and people the world over ever since.
I was honored and humbled to be asked to take on the task of rebranding Austin based shop Parts & Labour. Many more details can be found on my blog here.
May tacos be with you. I've converted my love for all things tortilla, meat, and veggies into a patch. In Texas, all roads lead to tacos.
The second edition in a new color scheme is available in my shop above!
I ran a free sticker giveaway in February of 2017 to celebrate not only my love of books, but to spread the idea of learning new things, of exploring new frontiers, of the pursuit of deeper understanding, of going on adventures, and of the importance of broadening your worldview.
In addition to the free sticker, people also received a personalized "Avid Reader" certificate as well as some library themed postcards from the public domain.
These little packages went out to over 10 states and people really seemed to enjoy them.
This two color screen print was given out to friends, family, and clients to celebrate the 2016 holiday season.

Parts and Labour on S. Congress here in Austin gave me a 2 month long residency on their art wall. I spent about 4 months planning, designing, printing, and assembling all sort of succulent themed designs.
This print was inspired by Austin, Texas. My family and I have lived here for over a decade and can't get enough of the bbq, music, mother nature, and good times.
In August 2016 I heard of a political poster show being curated by the AIGA chapter in Jacksonville, Florida. I rarely put my political beliefs out there, but they had an open call for submissions and I decided to take a crack at a poster dealing with a topical issue that I care about. I decided to make my piece regarding the idea of a border wall. I wanted to create an image that would show the repercussions of a wall that, if built, would cut right down the edge of Texas' only Natural Park, Big Bend. I wanted to design something in the style of old WGA posters from the 50s. By all accounts, the show was a great success and I am happy to be a part of it.
This postcard was one of my first Austin themed products. To this day its still one of my best sellers.
Texas BBQ is the best. Period. You can have your Memphis, or Kansas City, or North Carolina. In my mind, the slow cooked meat using oak or pecan wood is a slice of heaven.
Recently I was asked to design and print a trio of screen prints celebrating a couple's journey together for the last 15 years. They met in Atlanta, moved out to Albuquerque, and finally settled with kids in Austin. I designed these 3 prints over the course of a month that depicted various architectural gems, natural wonders, bars, and restaurants that meant something special to them throughout their lives together.
I designed this can cooler to show off my love for Texas beers to all the nonbelievers out there. Available in the shop above!
Austin is famous for many things, not the least of which is their landmark moon towers. This print highlights the remaining 15 towers still found around the city that have been lighting our way since 1905.

I had fun working on this little groovy feline mellowing out with some tunes.
