Squiggle test.

So, this one's "raw" right outta the sketchbook - it was a "squiggle test" drawing (for those of you unacquainted with that term, it refers to having someone make a squiggly line on the page, then the goal is to turn the squiggle into a drawing of some sort.) I've highlighted the squiggle on the second image to indicate what I had to start with...

A quick little video I put together for YouTube, using GarageBand and Quicktime. Whee!

Big Wheels Rollin'...

This was done for the Saskatchewan Trucking Association. The original illustration (top) had a little smoke action going on up top, but I soon discovered that diesel smoke is an issue that the organization doesn't want to draw attention to, so it was done away with on the final product (lower image.)

More Misc. Logos.









These are just a few examples of the many, many logos I've designed over the years...

Some older stuff.



Just a few miscellaneous items I found while poking around on some old backup disks. These are all typical of the product I might have produced while working at the 'Post. Often I was faced with trying to put too much information from the customer into too small of an allotted space, while attempting to make it look appealing to the eye...sometimes, it worked; other times...well... :0

Ron's Book.

This is the cover art and a few select chapter illustrations that I created for Leader-Post humour columnist Ron Petrie's first book, "Running of the Buffalo." Ron is one of those fellas with a "putty face" - possessed of a wide range of facial expressions. he can (and certainly DID) look VERY different from photo to photo. I eventually settled on a single photo image to base the illustration on. The buffaloes are meant to mimic the tame cartoon sidekick of a famous Queen City icon - "Pemmican Pete."

From the ground...UP.

This was done on spec a year or so ago while I was still at the 'Post for GroundUp Restorations. It was only used a time or two, unfortunately. The proposal included "stand-alone" logo variations I designed plus the logo used in conjunction with an illustration I did up of the owner's car ('69 Camaro as shown) plus business cards and letterhead. I was going for the old "Monogram-plastic-model-kit-box-cover-art" sort of look...I'd like to think I pulled it off...
