Design and illustration for Las Vegas Parrot Head Club’s annual Last Man Standing event for 2013. This design is to be used on promotional materials and a t-shirt. Working from a rough concept provided by the client, I produced approximately five intermediate proofs before settling on this for the final design. The background was also designed to remain consistent with their overall club branding. The illustration was produced in Adobe Illustrator. It consists of some stock images along with original hand drawn elements. It was finalized in Adobe Photoshop and delivered to the client in .pdf format.
A client wanted these photos restored to be given as a Christmas gift. On the left is the original as received, and on the right is the version after I restored it. Client said “Thank you! I just wanted you to know my dad loved the photos.” These versions don’t to the amount of retouching justice, because they are reduced in size and optimized for web presentation. If you are interested in photo restoration, I can provide higher quality images for you to examine.
Las Vegas Parrot Head Club recently changed their name to Phin City PHC and came to me to design and illustrate a new branding to use on their promotional materials and club t-shirts. The client gave me a general direction and some current concept art. They requested that I incorporate their current mascot, the “strip”, some Vegas landmarks, and the hills surrounding the city. Working with their concept, I came up with multiple ideas. They finally settled on this design as their new “brand”. This was created in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, using some stock art, some manipulated public domain photos, and some original artwork. Final design was delivered as a camera ready .pdf file.

Logo concept design and illustration for Migration 2006 for the LA, OC, and Inland Empire Parrot Head Clubs. Created in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop using client supplied “mascots”, which were vectorized and manipulated for the design, some stock clip art and extensive elements hand drawn from source photos which I went out and shot on site for realism. This event was held at the Coast Hotel in Long Beach, CA and the background was created to be an accurate representation of the view across the bay from the hotel toward downtown Long Beach. This design was used for all promotional materials, including; t-shirts, posters, cloisonné pins, plastic commemorative signs, and event laminates.
The West Coast Christian logo was designed based on the popular “West Coast Choppers” logo. The Maltese Cross was stretched out to resemble the Christian cross. The “Christian” letters were hand drawn in Adobe Illustrator, and the “West Coast” was added in an open source font. The logo was created in vector format for scaling to any size. This logo has been reproduced on t-shirts, stickers, patches, coasters, and many more items.
The Orange County Parrot Head Club held a contest to design a logo for their 10th Anniversary year.
