Making some Hi-five to breakfast signs! 10″x5″ max metal with black vinyl and rounded corners. This is all scrap metal from a local sign shop. Just had to pay for the vinyl. About $1.65 per sign.

Just finished working on a logo concept for Black Forest Animal Care in Black Forest, CO. The client originally wanted to incorporate the Colorado flag into the design, but it’s very much over used. I wanted it to be a Colorado logo without actually saying Colorado. I like how the paw print sort of doubles as a mountain/moon setting. Here’s the first concept I came up with.
Here’s a bulldog illustration concept for Big Dog Motorcycles out of Wichita, KS. We’re working on some mascot concepts to use in product design and various marketing material for them. This started as a pencil sketch which we later scanned into Adobe Ai. and began Illustrating.
Here’s another logo concept for Cloud Nine Marketing. The client wanted to incorporate sun rays / sunshine into the design so that’s what I did. I started with a some simple shapes and went from there. Nothing ground breaking here but a simple and recognizable design. Lets see what she thinks.
Logo concept for Cloud Nine Marketing out of the east coast. I gently incorporated the number nine into the clouds. Didn’t want to make it too noticeable. The font is built from scratch. It’s a bit playful but still feels professional.
Here’s a pine cone logo design for my hippy buddy Jon. I’ve known this guy since we were 10 years old, over twenty years. Still the same old Jon, love this guy. He’s a traveling musician that makes/sells some amazing jewelry out of Colorado pine cones. Jon travels around the country with his girlfriend living out of their van, doing whatever it takes to keep liv’n the good life. The rest of us suckers are settling for big mortgage payments and 401Ks. Keep up the hustle my friend.

As part of my art project “Hi-five to the simple life”, I’ll be helping to promote local business’s that really makes Colorado Springs great. In return they’re helping to promote my project. There’s so many entrepreneurs out there with big dreams and big aspirations, and that are really trying to make a difference in their own lives as well as others. Everyone of these small business’s is unique in their own way. So if any of these businesses appeal to you, go say hi, go poke your nose around, ask some questions, see what makes these entrepreneurs tick. Ask them those big questions like “why are you in business in the first place”? Because dreams are meant to be lived, what’s yours?
