This design was for a super small run of tote bags to celebrate the five year anniversary of the city-favorite wine bar, Le Caviste. A friend who happens to work at Caviste got in touch asking me to design it as a surprise for the owner, David. Inspired by David (a true salty dog) and vintage clothing labels, we decided on this two-color tote design--all in French. Sadly, the totes are not available to the public and only a limited number were produced. Big thank you to Ink Knife Press for printing these.
Sera Cahoone is one of my favorite folks to make posters for. This solo speedboater was an idea I've had for a bit, but wanted to save it for something special--and Sera approved.
Generally, I think it's a little presumptuous to give the gift of one's own art, but I made this for my dad and it is very up his alley, so it was a safe bet. Plus parents aren't allowed to tell their kids if their gift is a dud. If you're unfamiliar with Mold-A-Rama, it's a plastic souvenir-making machine that began in the 60s and became quite popular at the Seattle and New York World's Fairs. A few dozen still operate throughout the US today. My illustration is based off of one of the machines at the Seattle Fair that my dad attended as a kid and mold I featured is modeled after the Monorail that was available in 1962.
A month or so ago Seattle Magazine got in touch to ask me about designing pins and a page full of my pins are now out on newsstands.
I tend to take a lot of photos with my Fujifilm and here are some of my favorites from the month of December.
