Season’s Greetings from the Pacific Northwest

Happy Holidays 2013

2013 was the year I decided to pick up and finally get away from Eagles fans — just in time for Seahawks fans to be a thing. I’m still in the process of settling in, but if there’s one thing that’s absolutely true about the Pacific Northwest it’s that it’s covered in Sasquatch!

Unfortunately that’s probably a lie. I have yet to meet a Sasquatch even though I’ve driven through the picturesque mountains several times in a little over a month. I have however seen a troll, Lenin and this monstrosity.

Monte Cristo

Monte Cristo

We all know people like them, or at the very least have been distracted by them. They’re the people who are so civilized that they refuse to eat any sort of foodstuff without a knife and fork.

Hot Tea

Hot Tea

Before Star Wars: Episode I came out and the hype was so big that even if the movie was good it couldn’t have lived up to the anticipation. In fact the main villain that their marketing strategy focused on would prove to be a fairly ineffective villain. That villain was Darth Maul.

“Why?” you may ask, am I discussing one of the most reviled movies in nerd history. Well it’s directly related to why this week’s monster, who is more menacing looking than last week’s Hot Turkey Sandwich, and he’s totally a vegan.

Hot Turkey Sandwich

Hot Turkey Sandwich

I have no idea why I started this series, especially since my circus series is up to only two performers. The thing is I’ve become obsessed. My working title is Diner Monsters and I’m pretty sure I’m the only person who is going to love these little guys, but I can’t help it. There is something so silly about the idea of a monster sitting down at a diner and having a meal.

The Roadside Explorer Edition

The Roadside Explorer

I’m finally done! The last in my series of business cards, and I couldn’t be happier. I put in the order today.

For the last in my series of Tat business cards I did another more personal card. I LOVE visiting offbeat tourist locations. Giant Gorillas or Madonnas? Check. Museums opened by people with a disturbing collection of elephant chachkies? Absolutely. Any two headed, multi-legged beast, real or faked. I’m there. Buildings that look like inanimate objects? Especially those! Summer time is the best time to visit those places, seeing as most are seasonal, so I’m getting very excited to finish of visiting places in road trip vicinity of Philly.

Food Illustrations

Nutrisystem vs. Medifast Landing Page

One of Nutrisystem’s biggest competitors on the web is a company called Medifast. They both offer food created specifically to shed pounds, but with drastically different offerings. As it does with many of it’s competitors Nutrisystem put together a landing pages outlining the benefits of their product.

For this project I was asked to do illustrations that showed a typical day on each program. The color palette needed to be somewhat soft and muted, but still be consistent with the food items. I also needed to keep the serving sizes accurate while making the Nutrisystem options more robust in comparison.

Only Hipsters Ride Unicycles

Only Hipsters Ride Unicycles

Since I created Don’t Call Him a Hipster Strong Man back in January I’ve been thinking about doing a series based on the circus. I’ve also been thinking of turning them into a series of cards, all with the same basic color palette and everyone wearing some piece of apparel that’s red and white stripped. This week I completed my aerialist.

The Cat Lady Edition

The Cat Lady Edition

When I decided to create a collection of business cards based on my interests I wanted them to showcase both things I just like and things that I actually do in real life. Both the Bearded Lady Edition and the Mad Scientist Edition were based on my love of old timey sideshows and old horror/sci-fi movies, particularly of the mad scientist variety.

For the next two I decided to tell a little more about what I like to do, and for this one in particular it was spending time with my cat. I actually only have one cat and she’s a bit of a demon, but like most pet owners I love her. I also thought it would be a lot of fun to do a crazy cat lady edition.
