2010 year of the Tiger

Happy year of the Tiger!  2010 is the year of the metal tiger to be more specific. This is said to be a year of passions, honesty, and modesty. May the courage of the tiger bring us all wonderful challenges that lead to great accomplishments. Or at least a lot of passionate encounters that lead to growth, or at least a whole lot of pleasure. The image here, (done in my pen/brush and ink style with patterns, pigments, textures and colors filling in the canvas—thanks in part to the help of photoshop magic) is meant to encapsulate the allure, courage, and wildness of the tiger with a fashionable flare, of course. I hope I hit the mark and that you enjoy the illustration. Happy New Year, the red envelopes are in the mail!

Ariat Print 2010

Friday, February 12th, 2010

We just finished the retouching on the new Ariat Print campaign. Bringing the eighties back one star filter at a time. I must say ripped off the effect from watching Monday Night Football. We actually captured the stars in camera with the help of the Hoya filter. Our goal was to show the PBR riders the way the PBR events go down, part rock and roll show part sporting event. It was a fun trip to Vegas!!! Enjoy!

Currently working on prepping the studio for a week long shoot with Marlboro, retouching two shoots we did with Corbis and cutting an motion spot we did last week. Cheers.





Almond Board

These are a few photos from a year long project with SRG and the Almond Board. It was an amazing opportunity to photograph the almond orchards from bloom to dormancy. It also helped to work with the extremely talented Art Director, Alicia Potter and a great crew.
