I carved a little stamp of my personal sigil to use on the backs of my framed art and I just love it. It reminds me of the stone one I had made as a seal in Korea, but I am too afraid to use that one because I don’t want to mess it up. Heh.
Paragould Farmer’s Market is upgrading this year and I had the privilege of upgrading their logo.
I can’t believe it’s finally here!
The movie I had the great pleasure to work on a few years ago with the incredible Juli Jackson on her full-length, Arkansas-made feature – 45RPM – which I helped not only with branding, but also did most of the work for the artist in the film, including 30+ sketches, 20 large paintings, a sketchbook, hundreds of frames of animation and more! Not only that, but I have done the branding and much of the packaging for the movie.
Once again, I worked with the wonderful people at the Ozark Foothills Film Fest to create the branding for this year’s fest. In the past I try to work in the theme of the Ozarks and Arkansas, at least in some way, but this year I went a different route. I chose something more eye catching and direct.
Tshirt Design ↑
Again this year I got to create the look for the annual Ozark Foothills FilmFest. I really like the way this years turned out and especially the tshirts. Looking forward to another great day of movies tomorrow. Bob and Judy are the very best.
Instead of a small Art & Stroll this year, Paragould began the first annual Arts & Music Festival. I did the branding: logo, posters, flyers, website, tshirts, stickers, brochure…. you name it, I probably did it. Here are just a few items from the 2014 campaign.

My friend Cassie just got her massage therapy and I helped her establish an identity for herself. Above is just one of the head shots from our photoshoot. If you want to see more, check out the Flickr set.
This is the logo I created for her.
And business cards.
I was recently asked by The Monolith Records to design a logo and the album cover for the up-and-coming grindcore band, Sockweb’s first album Werewolf.
Sockweb are a father/daughter combo where the daughter is just seven years old. The output is some of the most adorable grindcore ever heard by human ears; Adam “Blackula” Young writes and records the music, as well as supplementary vocals, but Joanie “Bologna” Young provides the primary vocal outlet, and ever since the earlier songs were released her chops have grown increasingly more brutal.
I couldn’t help but love these guys from the moment I heard them. It was a fun project and I think the outcome is just as lively.
“It was pretty difficult at first to find the right place to turn to, we wanted to find an artist that would accurately create a tableau that gave credence to the situation of a young girl finding a Werewolf in her room, but that could have been painted by a child. Trying to find a perfect balance between childlike prowess and actual professional artistry is a much harder feat than you would expect, but we were lucky to come into contact with the fantastic and always dependable Mandy Maxwell. This young artist is not only incredibly efficient with her timing and fair with her pricing – she always maintains the utmost professionalism when it comes to communication and is extremely understanding and flexible. I’ve worked with many artists, but it’s always refreshing to find the ones that truly engage with the concept and are unafraid to share their passion with you.”
Here is a look at the process:
