Head for the hills

Here is an illustration I did a while back. I thought it would be fitting given the early snows that have helped out the local ski hills of late. Too bad the last snowstorm that hammered the D.C. area totally missed its target. From what I've heard, heavy winter weather in December was predicted by the Farmer's Almanac as well as most meteorologists (go figure). Well, Yeee Haww. I'm beyond ready to get my ski rack set up and head for the hills (queue Iron Maiden).

Shadow Drop Tees

I liked the banner design enough that I got a little carried away with it.
I hope to be ROCKing this T-shirt soon. If anyone wants one, let me know a size.

New banner

BAM! I figured the new banner would keep things fresh and possibly inspire me to increase the frequency of my posts a bit.

A couple inspirations for the design:

The above T-Shirt design for Dave Matthews Fall 2007 tour was done by FarmBarn Art Co. It appeared in Print Magazine's design annual, which has worn pages after doubling as my reference book for the past couple years. I think it's a pretty sick nasty design. (Sorry, choppy pic taken with my cell phone)

The above graffiti art is done by artist, illustrator and hip-hop musician, Kid Acne. An eye-popping design by an all-around creative dude. It appeared on his blog, which is pretty impressive, but check out his music too. Although, I can't figure out what nationality he is. He sounds like a Piker from the movie "Snatch."

Happy Holidays
