Beer Posters

Here are a couple posters I created from some of my beer packaging. You can view the original packaging for Drop Kick Ale here and Leapin' Leprechaun here. Both these posters are 18"x24" in size. Copywriter: Garrett Street.

Blacktop Creative Christmas Card

Below is this year's Blacktop Creative Christmas card. I have always been greatly inspired by the cartoon drawing styles from the late 1950's and early 1960's. I love the limited color palettes, black line, and use of negative space.This is my homage to those who came before,
including a hand-lettered sentiment. Copywriter: Garrett Street



Pilate's Cross Book Cover

I recently had the opportunity to create a book cover design/illustration for my friend and author J. Alexander Greenwood. His new novel, "Pilate's Cross" is available for purchase at Smashwords Publishing. Visit the author's website for more information and to read an excerpt of the novel.

I really enjoyed working on this project. I was able to explore my love of illustrating type and it's relation to negative space. The title is knocked out of the silhouette of the man's profile, forming a "maze". This signifies the characters "internal search" along with the "external search" for answers in regard to the murder mystery. There is a small graphic figure of a man entering the maze. The black and white relates to the winter setting for the story.
