It’s important that we all do our part to help keep our planet healthy and in good working order. Whatever we take away from her we must give back. We have to slow down our over consumption of resources and find a medium that works for everyone. The days of massive carbon foot prints are over, lets move forward and grow together.
Organic food can drastically increase your health and well-being. It’s important to know where your food is coming from and how it’s being processed. A great way to insure you’re getting quality fruits and vegetables is to go to your local farmers markets. You’re sure to find healthy food that tastes great and doesn’t have any harmful GMO’s. The best part is it’s most likely coming from your local community which means your helping out your surrounding neighbors as well. Cheers
It is dire that we live in the Now, because now is all we’ll ever have. Nothing ever happened in the past and nothing will ever happen in the future, it will happen now. If you’re concerned about the future or troubled by the past you will miss out on every instant that stands right in front of you. No matter how boring or mundane your life may be, allow yourself to be taken over and surrender to now. Complete devotion to every conversation, every long drive home from work, every second of every day. Let your mind rest from constant thought and focus on what’s real and in front of you.
Mark Hartenberger is a custom tattoo artist out of Colorado Springs. He’s an all around artist but his specialty is illustrated realism, right up my alley. We did some trade work recently, I got a Native American rib piece and he got a website to promote his tattoo artwork. “A good trade” as Kicking Bird would say. Great artist, great guy.
This cool truck drawing was just something for fun, a 1966 Chevy C-10 I used to have. I was playing around with Prisma Color Markers. Most of my personal artwork has a ton of scribbles incorporated in them. I like the way I can create realism and still just let the medium flow without forcing it. Plus it just makes the artwork more interesting.
Dirty 30s: As most of you know I’m a huge hockey fan, I run a men’s league in Colorado Springs. This Dirty 30s Illustration is for one of my new hockey teams. These guys are all Air Force cadets, they fly C-130’s so that’s where the name comes from. I love drawing realism with a hint of cartoon styling in there. This This airplane drawing turned out pretty cool.
The rep for Simplicity Organizing came to looking for organized brand development that described her company in the easiest way possible. My objective was to create a logo that was simple, direct and clearly organized. The first thing I thought about was a filing cabinet and the folders inside. I love the shades of blue; they’re sharp and easy on the eyes as well. To me they appear very calming which is the whole point of organization right? Knowing where all your shit is creates a sense of ease on the mind. I also built a website for her, CLICK HERE to check it out.
I just might have to call her someday to get me on track because I have a bad habit of just throwing my paperwork in the filing cabinet and hope it lands in the right folder.
The Winnipeg Hornets: As most of you know I’m a huge hockey fan, I run a men’s league in Colorado Springs. This Hornet Illustration is for a hockey team up in Winnipeg, Canada. “Out with the old and in with the new” he said. This gentleman was simply looking for something a little more creative than the old design they’d had for many years. I’ve never drawn up a hornet but this one turned out pretty awesome. I always enjoy drawing cartoons or illustrations, it brings me back to my childhood and a simple time in my life.
