New Design & Illustration Work.

The first quarter of the year has started off nicely and we've been busy creating some cool images for some cool clients. From game packaging design to designing brands for new companies, we've been helping a number of businesses create memorable images that promote their brand to the world. Here are a few examples:

A new logo for a new Texas financial corporation

 

New branding for a Texas ranch.

A new logo for a Frito-Lay promotion for The Marketing Arm

A new brand for The Honors Golf Club in Dallas, Texas

Illustrations for Brinker Corporate - owners of Chili's, Maggiano's restaurants

Thank You for the Support! - Official Opening - This Saturday Night!

The "Roads Less Traveled" show has started off with a bang! - Thank you to all who have supported the work by making purchases - I appreciate you very much! - I just returned from Houston late last night - Dr. Francine Carraro gave a wonderful talk at the gallery. - Thank you Francine for your kind words! Also had the chance to listen to Bill Reaves share some encouraging words. Thanks Bill! - Bonnie Campbell and Sharon & Marshall Meece were a few other friends that I had the chance to see. - Most surprising was the privilege of meeting some great Texas artists who came to see the work. Stella Sullivan, David Adickes, Richard Stout were a couple of the artists I was able to speak with. What a treat to listen to their stories and see some of their work! - Thanks to all who stopped by. - Please come by the gallery if you are in town this Saturday evening for the opening. -

"Roads Less Traveled" Show opens in one month - April 9!

Just finished shooting all the pieces for the show with my good friend Adam Fish. He did an awesome job capturing all the work with his camera. Thanks Adam! - I am feverishly finishing up the design of the catalog so that I can send to printer this week. It is coming together nicely and should be a really cool book. My artist friend Brett Johnston stopped by the studio to lend a critical eye - Thanks Brett! - Bill Reaves, Steve Gaskin, Sarah Beth Wilson and Francine Carraro continue to be a great deal of help as the date draws near - Thanks guys! - Here are a few sneak preview images from the catalog of the upcoming show. - Thanks for looking :) Hope to see you in Houston!

Update. - "The Roads Less Traveled" Show - Opens April 9!

Putting final touches on 35 pieces for show that opens April 9 at William Reaves Fine Art in Houston. Only 2 weeks left before Adam Fish photographs all the pieces so that I can start designing/producing the 48 page catalog that will accompany the show. Feeling the pressure :) Have been working until 1:00a.m. every night for past 11 months preparing for what I hope will be a great exhibit of contemporary neo-regionalist Texas art. Dr. Francine Carraro - director of the Grace Museum in Abilene - has delivered a wonderful essay that will be part of the catalog and William Reaves is in the process of writing an introduction. Thank you Francine & Bill! - More to come!
