So I recently had some stickers done up for Masters of Chicken Scratch. The stickers are 2 3/8″ wide by 3″ tall about the size of a business card to give some reference  The stickers are made in the USA with 1.2 mil heavy duty vinyl with 1 mil waterproof UV laminate. You might ask, what does that mean? Well that means they are made of the best quality material and you can slap those puppies on your outdoor play equipment.  They would look great on your sweet custom 70’s van ( I wished I had one) or your tricked out family ride. It shows you got some style and class. So you can order 1 sticker for $2 but that is not very much fun so I also offer a 4 pack of stickers for $5. Patches are also on there way and you will be in top notch fashion after you put one of those on your corduroy jacket. If get some stickers please take some pics and post them on my facebook page or here so I can see where they have been stuck, and keep it clean kids.

Recently I had a Lego fan by the name of Harald Christ recently ask me if he could use one of my ships as inspiration for a Lego model. I said of course and I was amazed at how fast he got it done. He captured the ship very well and I would love to see it in physical Lego’s. Harald used a Lego building Continue Reading…

In this post I am going to share a few things I use to inspire myself as artist and entrepreneur. So as a business owner I use many tools to really help inspire me and keep me motivated to carry on. I try to go beyond the art and design books. As a Christian one of the most important things I do is read the Bible. Just voicing my concerns and my praises to God can make a huge difference in my day along with reading the Bible. In Proverbs there are many great business practices to apply to your daily work routine. I also read or listen to a lot of business development books. Some of the books I have read recently is “the Dip” Continue Reading…

This is a small sketch I did recently on my Ipod using a program called Brushes and my new Bamboo stylus from Wacom

Took me about 20mins to get it done. I used a reference shot of the 1909 Blitzen Benz (very cool race car)

I ask myself this question all the time. How do I stay ahead of the game in the design world. There are so many ways to approach this question. I know that as an artist and designer I never feel that I can say that Continue Reading…

 

I recently had the opportunity to work with an advertising agency by the name of CP+B on a really fun project. Domino’s Pizza is running a contest with Local Motors to create a creative Continue Reading…
