Jethro's BBQ ad campaign

Jethro's BBQ ad campaign

This ad campaign was originally proposed for Jethro's BBQ N' BACON BACON's grand opening but that was delayed and we ended up reusing the art for an April Fool's joke. It was created with the GIADC Creative Campaign team by me, Hayley Anderson and led by Brian Tallman. I designed the animated digital ads in Adobe Flash and animated HTML5 ads in Adobe Edge. I also illustrated the new front facing Jethro character.

This is a campaign that I worked on with the GIADC Creative Campaign team. The creative was developed by me and Jolene Schultz and led by Brian Tallman. I designed the digital/animated ads and Jolene designed the print ads. We handmade the logo based off of different fonts and illustrated the fair characters.

This is a campaign that I worked on with the GIADC Creative Campaign team. The creative was developed by me and Jon Kytola and led by Brian Tallman. I created the animated ads and Jon made the logo and print ads. We had a lot of fun with the 80's theme and I learned a lot making a fake bowling arcade game.

After this campaign sold they sent us some shirts!

Tree of Children

Tree of Children

My wife is a preschool teacher and wanted a way to remember all the kids every year. I drew this tree and she had all her kids put their thumbprints as leaves in the tree. She plans to use a different shade of green with every new class.

2bots video shoot

I shot my friend Roman's kickstarter video for his new shirt line called 2bots. I will be editing it over the next few weeks, but here are a few of my photos I shot. This is my first big video project so I have a lot to learn. It was fun and I'm excited to see how it turns out. Check out those posters!

Guy In A Dinosaur Costume shirt design

My work held a design contest for our softball team "Guy In A Dinosaur Costume". My friend Derek Mit sketched the guy and I took it and designed it up. There was a 2 color limit so I did white and neon green. We didn't win :(

I am working on a children's book with my friend Derek Mit. It should be ready to order before the holidays, so save a few bucks for either the print or eBook. I will post the water color art soon.

The Raven

The Raven

I helped create this for my wife, Alyssa. She loves the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe and wanted something based on The Raven. So we shortened the text and used the best parts. I penciled all the lettering and she inked it. Then I drew the raven and grunged up the background and edges. Turned out kinda creepy, so now we have to find a good place to hang it.

Pizzachu

It was a snow day today, so I drew this.

This is a book I made in high school for a creative writing class. Originally it was made by cutting out colored construction paper, but I decided to re-draw it a couple years ago for my cousin Kelly.
