Here are some samples of my non-trading card work. It’s a little of everything.
I’ve designed a lot of trading cards! Let’s say I’ve been doing it for 22 years so far. Let’s say I design about 6-8 sets a year with about 10-15 card designs per set. Then throw in about 20-40 miscellaneous additional card designs. So that’s about 121 card designs per year! Multiply by 22 years and I’ve designed exactly 2,662 trading cards, front and back, with parallels and variations in my life time! Okay, so that’s a rough estimate, but you get the idea.
Most are good designs. Some are excellent! Some… not so good. I’ve pared it down to 27 for this gallery. Are these my best designs? I’m not sure, but I’m proud of my work here. I have lost track of most of the card designs I’ve done and have no record of them. I tried to include variations of style and content to give a broad representation of my life’s work. I hope you are impressed.
Here are a few logos.
I love designing T-shirts. I usually get to use my illustration skills. Bold colors and fun imagery are usually the rule. here are a few that I’ve done in the past.
A lot of my work is illustrative. Here are some of my favorites.
Occasionally, I make digital paintings from photos. These are photos that are manipulated to look like paintings. Sure, there are Photoshop filters that do an average job of that. But those filters don’t look very realistic and they vary from photo to photo depending on photo grain and focus. The best way, in my opinion, is to manipulate the entire surface by hand using various Photoshop tools. And it is better still to have it done by an actual artist who has experience as a painter. This is how I do it. It takes longer than clicking on a filter, but the results are so much better!
