Just finished working on a new illustration for Bleed Hockey. This design “Legs Feed the Wolf” is based off a quote from the 1980s USA Hockey Olympic coach Herb Brooks. Bleed Hockey is doing some re-branding which includes a new logo and a whole line up of cool new products. Bleed Hockey wanted to go after a 1960s style horror comic book theme. So here is one of the new designs we put together for them.
Here’s another robot / android logo concept for our client. We went after a more direct logo design to really incorporate that android feel. I added a bone in there to push the human/robot feel, but I kinda like just the wrenches.
Been working on a new robot logo design for an up and coming apparel company out of Colorado Springs. This concept is designed to be easily altered, sort of like Mr. Potato Head, so you can swap out parts, eyes and ears, you get the point. The client wanted something that looked a little beat up, had a salvage yard feel to it. This is not the final design but it’s a start.
Currently working on a new moose illustration for Bleed Hockey’s new project the Eddie the Yeti. Arney is a real handsome fellow with some gnarly flow (that’s hockey hair in case you didn’t know).
Here’s a Gorilla illustration for a Colorado Springs client. They’re starting a new clothing brand and this will be one of their brands mascots.
Been working on some more hockey designs for Bleed Hockey out of Colorado Springs. They’re currently working on some top-secret projects involving a moose, a beaver, and a yeti named Eddie. They said it was okay that I post a sneak peak at what’s currently in the works. So here is a look at the character Eddie the Yeti. He’s a hockey playing, ice smashing, slap shot blasting Yeti with a hunger for cheeseburgers. Enjoy.
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.

I’ve currently been working on designing some goof Colorado themed online ads for Bleed Hockey. The idea here really has nothing to do with hockey. We’re just selling goofy comedy that with a little overtone of the hockey industry. These art illustrations were sketched out on paper and later brought to life in Adobe Illustrator. Pretty funny don’t-cha-know. All artwork designed by Chris Scott at Hi-five Design in Colorado Springs.
I absolutely love art. I absolutely love design. And I absolutely love combining the two. I think it’s the perfectionist in me that likes applying a grid system to art. What I don’t love though, is sitting in front of my Macintosh for hours on end everyday. I recently noticed that I’ve been spending way too much time designing graphics in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop and not enough hands on work. Catch my drift? I find myself now and again thinking “CONTROL – Z” when I goof up something in the real world. Gotta get away from this freag’n brain washing instrument and back to the real thing.
My goal is to get more into an analog state of mind. I sort of get the impression that this whole digital era completely detaches us from what it means to be human. I’m hoping that in the next few months I’ll get away from so much digital design and more involved with physical hands-on design such as letter press or screen printing. I find that when I’m able to work with my hands (verses a keyboard or mouse), I find a stronger sense of reward for accomplishing a creative design. With that said – this whole computer information age sucks you into an alternate reality, giving you the misconception that all this online nonsense is real. What a joke!
