DUKE – CD 2010

18 Dec 2010, 1:49pm

My wife and I had our first baby on Thanksgiving and for the birth announcement, I made a mix CD. I used the old Blue Note record designs of the 50’s and 60’s as inspiration. I sent around 50 of these out to family and friends. All the songs have the word “Baby” in their titles.

In a New York Minute Poster Design

This was a poster design for a non-existent gallery show I did back in 2006. It’s too bad it wasn’t a real show. I would have gone…

One Day I Will Be Treated Like a Designer...

Yes. This is how I feel most of the time these days. I am about tired of it. So I made this. High quality prints available…

The Big Plastic Head Music Mix 2008

24 Feb 2009, 5:53pm

Oh My God!!!

Oh YES! I FINALLY I finished my 2008 mix CD. Every year, I take all of the music that was released in the previous year and distill the songs down to a manageable fifteen to twenty tracks. I burn them on to a bunch of CDs and send them out to all my friends. WAY better than Christmas cards I think. This is year four or five and I do really enjoy doing it.

I also make a swell original cover for each “release” because God knows I need more portfolio pieces that reflect the work I WANT to do, not the work that I am forced to do.

(Click the above images to see the back and inside.)

Secret Bar Sticker

Secret Bar

This is a sticker design that I created for Thanksgiving. I would tell you more about it but, like it says, I would have to kick your ass first. If you know what I am talking about, you are a very lucky person.

4th of July Poster

1 Jul 2008, 11:42pm

This was a rush job I had this year. Normally I do not get to do any print work at the design house where I work. I am merely a pixel pusher (HEAD pixel pusher actually) in our web department so this was a nice change.

This was the artwork that I created for a mix CD that I sent out to friends. It was SO FUN to create and I think it came out very successful. The music rocks too.

A book cover that I designed for a ficticious book. I would have read it. Hey! That’s me on the cover!
