More T's

Couple more for ya!


I have been working in the screen print industry for over four years now and I don't think my friends have ever seen what I do. I have been lucky enough to work for two companies that handle large profile customers such as Disney, Universal, Ron Jon's and such. I don't make shirts for "Larry's Lawn Service". Not that there's anything wrong with that but I really like to draw all the cartoon characters and such. So here are some designs I did for Disney that I liked. I will post more soon.

Nothing Up My Sleeve

Just a quick post tonight. While my wife is medicated and sleeping and my son is being co-operative and sleeping, I found myself with a rare night to myself. So I actually finished a pic that was really just for me out of my sketchbook (yes, the dreaded sketchbook!). The sketch is just ball point pen and wash about one inch square actually. The final was done with a combination of ArtRage and Photoshop. Enjoy!

I totally understood the merits of the exercise by this point but I just never got to a level where I felt comfortable with my abilities in this area. To this day I still carry one around but I have come to the understanding that this is not my strong point. It's not that I don't think I draw well, I just use the sketches as exercises to work out problems, to thumbnail, and to basically ju…

Red letter Day for Mr. C

Philadelphia Business Journal

"The first casualty of the pending merger between the parent companies of TD Banknorth and Commerce Bank of Cherry Hill will be Mr. C. The venerable Commerce mascot, invariably present at bank events, has been handed his walking papers."

I can't tell you how happy I am to hear that. Mind you, I don't currently or have ever banked at Commerce Bank but several years ago at my last place of employment, I was given a picture of their mascot, Mr. C. What a piece of shit.

Apparently, or at least what I was told, was that they were looking to "freshen up the design" of the much loved character and the bank president's wife would wind up being the art director. Great! I did several versions that they accepted and then they would come back and ask for more changes. I finally arrived at a version that everyone seemed happy with. Except Mrs. Bank President. "I don't understand why he has no knees or elbows. How can be possibly…
