Better Know A District

We are 60 days away from the 2014 elections and I decided to make a poster about it. I’m trying to keep the message simple and hopefully get some people interested in finding out about their own congressional district. Maybe I’ll make more…

Special Olympics

I had the opportunity to create an event poster for the Special Olympics summer invitational games in Los Angeles.

International Poster-01 Subway Stop Summer Games Bus Stop Wheat Paste Posters

They wanted something that would stand out. had a vintage flair, and promoted the spirit of the games.

I just found out about teespring and thought it would be the perfect platform for my silly Star Wars / David Hasslhoff mashup shirt.


Please check out the site, it seems like a great idea for fun one off shirts, and let people know about mine!

I would be so stoked if they got made,

1001 Movies to See Before You Die

I recently finished a poster collage for a client. It involved over 1000 posters and quite a bit of fiddling in indesign but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

I promise I’m going to update this more often this summer, really.

Website – Accurate Cut Construction

By necessity more than anything I’ve been wetting my beak in the web design world lately. I recently got to a place in this build  that I feel comfortable sharing it. It was a bit of a struggle, and entirely more code work than I was hoping for, but I’m pretty happy with how it’s shaping up.



The site is for a local Southern California General Contractor. We went with a portfolio/photo style site as a way for him to stand out in the community of contractors. Since most need site merely as a lead capture and online business card, I pitched that he show off his projects and potentially start a blog highlighting his earnest, kind and straight talking personality. I would love to hear thoughts, comments or suggestions.

Thanks, Blake

Don’t Hassle The Moff


I recently put this silly pop mashup onto my society 6 store. They really take the headache out of the equation on these sillier ideas.

Freelance – FUMA Football Mania

Final Gold Jpeg

Tonight I was scanning through my design folder and I remembered this freelance job I did 9 long months ago. I looked them up and it appears the succeeded in launching their app and page. It’s always nice to see that my ideas are still being used and that they are pursuing their goals.

This was my first project using oDesk, which is a lovely platform, but suffers from a glut of potential supply, causing me to loose interest instead of fight the horde. I really did enjoy working for these guys though.
