The Last Bison promotional pieces

It's not every day when one of your favorite bands asks you to do a poster for them.  So I was over-the-moon when Dan Hardesty of The Last Bison commissioned me to create one badass illustration.

I was asked to create a t-shirt design, too. The design itself was actually done a while back as fanart, but the band liked it so much they had it formatted to be printed on a ladies' tee.

The Last Bison's new album Inheritance comes out March 5, 2013.

UPDATE: Listen to Inheritance on Spotify!

 

Coming soon...

Very soon I'll be launching a gallery of my lettering work.  My website is going through a bit of a makeover.  I've changed some things here to reflect the mood of my work.  See the new header?  Also, my new and improved resume (really obsessed with how lovely it looks now) is up.  The lettering gallery will feature my Illustrated Alphabet, inspired by Jessica Hische's Daily Drop Caps.  Here's a sneak peek of what's to come.

Check back soon for the launch of my new lettering portfolio!

Deandri & Solestruck Contest

A few hours ago, I saw that Solestruck, one of my favorite online shoe warehouses, was having a contest.  The premise was to draw your favorite Deandri shoe.  Hey, I never turn down an opportunity to draw some killer shoes (especially if there's a chance I'll snag a free pair!) .

That's Medusa rockin' the Olga.  I've really enjoyed playing around with sort-of-complementary-color schemes.  I hope it catches Solestruck and Deandri's attention!

Southern Cats Got Claws

A month or so ago, I was invited to participate in one of my favorite blogs, Ten Paces and Draw.  It's a wonderful blog because it gives illustrators an opportunity to work together in a really fun way!  Ten Paces and Draw is known for its Artist Swaps, and they recently started featuring Mix Tape challenges, where illustrators create a piece based on a song.  Loretta Lynn's "You Ain't Woman Enough to Take My Man" is the song I chose.

SPRING FLING

Just finished a SUPER ULTRA FUN-TIME illustration.  It is a design for a mock Alpha Phi event.  Since I went to SCAD , I never really experienced Greek life.  That is, until I went to visit my sweet little cousin at the University of Alabama.  SO much fun, it was crazy to be exposed to probably the polar opposite of art school. Anyhow, those sorority gals have a t-shirt for EVERYTHING.

My cousin gave me her approval, and I'm hoping the company I designed it for likes it, too!
