A digital sketchbook

Brighton Hove Albion

Premier league new boys, last years winners of the 2nd division, hailing from the sunny south coast of England, Brighton Hove Albion FC. Come on you Seagulls! More word art using the entire first team roster of a side managed by former pro, Chris Hughton.

Come On You Spurs

Lettering art using the entire Tottenham FC roster. Spurs have a storied history in English Football and play in London. Former USA national team goalkeeper Brad Friedel was a former Spurs player transferring there after many years shotstopping with Blackburn Rovers. Friedel recently transitioned from the commentary booth to head coach of the MLS club, the New England Revolution. Best of luck to you Brad, goalkeepers union for life.

Happy Holidays from the Sunshine City

Seasons greetings from the Sunshine City.  Everyone out there enjoy the Holiday season responsibly, show patience and kindness to others and quality team work during our travels. 

Trying out some Stabillo brand fine tip pens over Thanksgiving, here is my beach-life version of a seasonal greeting card.  Will have to pick up my own set of point 88's, these pens surprised me with their consistent line weight and lack of bleed like a marker might do.

Surfboard Sign Art for Cali Tacos

Update from a previous post entitled A Tribute to Rayzilla. Pictures taken at my house and the 4th Street location of California Tacos To-Go in St. Pete, Florida.  This restaurant sign art project was a labor of love and my first ever painted surfboard. Godzilla is romping around next to a remixed version of the companies' surf-shack meets taco-stand logo. Set within a landscape inspired by the Pacific Island nations and the movie Moana.  Painted with Golden brand acrylic paints and sealed with Superclear Supreme UV protector top coat by Modern Masters.

Big thanks to Tony, Cali Taco's manager seen pictured, who is a gem for hiring me to do multiple sign projects.  I was given full freedom on this piece. When the actor who originally played Godzilla passed away in August the news came to me via NPR radio while sketching concepts and there was this eureka moment.  One item on Cali Taco's menu is a massive "Godzilla" burrito! The ideas and composition was worked out quickly after that.  Not just restaurant signage in English and Japanese but also a tribute to local musician Ray "Rayzilla" Villadonga and the famous actor Haruo Nakajima.

If you know anyone who needs a hand-painted quote, greeting card, mural or lettered sign please contact me. I am working on my schedule for the upcoming months.
