My Son: Electric Mellow T-Shirts

I got my first "pro-ish" job designing t-shirts while still in high school. My son, having just completed his first year of college, has decided to go a similar route during his Summer Vacation. He's put up a bunch of his own very fine original t-shirt designs like the one seen here up at Electric Mellow, his sharp new website (that he also designed himself), which I hope you'll check out [/proud dad].

Another Daily Billboard Post

I'm way late on this one, but the Daily Billboard has kindly posted another one of the KFI billboards I illustrated and may still be appearing here and there in the city of my birth, Los Angeles.

For Fans of Spacemen and Patent Medicine

Surreality Watch likes two of my Zazzle products and I appreciate that.

KFI Billboards

Last Summer I did four illustrations based on (swiped from) vintage clip art for promotional billboards for KFI AM 640. My brother Neil art directed and wrote the billboard copy. The art was completely digital -- and I was drawing somewhat out of my comfort zone -- but I managed to get a fairly authentic retro brush look anyway.  Daily Billboard recently posted a photo of one of the billboards "in action" on Sunset Blvd (thanks, Daily Billboard!).

Dr. Frankenstein Recycles

I've just been informed that my microstock illustration, "Dr. Frankenstein Recycles," has been selected as an "Image of the Week" over at iStockPhoto. The idea for this image, that Dr. Frankenstein is the ultimate recycler, came about while trying to think of pro-recycling concepts to illustrate but wanting to draw monsters and fun stuff like that. I very quickly had one of those "ah ha!" moments that don't happen often enough.

UPDATE (11/1/10):  Dr. Frankenstein Recycles was iStockPhoto's highest rated illustration last week. I'd rather it be the best-selling illustration but it's nice to be liked.

Are You An Angry Man?

My newest t-shirt design may help you get in touch with your inner enraged but polite maniac and let your next fashion statement be sputtering, impotent rage. Also available on a swell coffee mug at my Zazzle store. (It's starting to sound like a bit like an infomercial around here. Sorry about that.)
