The Foul Mouths

This past week was the annual AIGA Cocktails & Creatives Bowling Night. This event brings together members and non-members for an evening of competition, fun and camaraderie. I have taken an interest in doing more with digital illustrations, and took this event as an opportunity to practice by putting together a team name, the Foul Mouths and creating a poster for our team table. Our team didn’t win.. or even come close for that matter, but we had a lot of fun and it was great to come out and see everyone as always. Check out the winners on the AIGA Jacksonville Chapter blog, and pictures form the event on their Flckr account.

In The Shoe Show – Underbelly@Anomaly

Recently we had the opportunity to join other local artists to participate in a show hosted by the good people of Underbelly @ Anomaly called, The Shoe Show. Emily Moody & Shea Slemmer are wonderful hosts who are doing a lot of good things with their location in Five Points. We took to the call to artists as an opportunity to have fun with a different kind of canvas. We had three sets of shoes represented at the show. One set, a collaboration of both our illustrations mixed in together, and the other two sets were done individually. They can still be seen up at Underbelly, and if you have never been there, with its outdoor setting and tree-house DJ booth, it’s definitely a place to check out in Five Points.

O’brien—from Designers in Toy Land

Designers in Toyland, an AIGA fundraiser and custom toy show, this past week at Art Walk opened up the doors to an outstanding turnout. There were so many people passing through to see all of the amazing pieces done by a grouping of 80 artists/designers. It was such a privilege to be a part of such a wonderful event. Check out all the great photos taken at the event from the links in the previous post from Nick, and take a moment to check out this video posted by Urban Jacksonville as well as this video from one of our classmates, Jesse Sison.

A great thing about the show was the opportunity to try something new. I decided that I wanted to paint one of the Kid Robot Munny dolls such as I have seen other friends do in the past. The Munny dolls come with a random assortment of additional attachments to differentiate similar models from each other, and mine happened to have a hat that pretty much helped me immediately decide what I wanted to do with mine. Below are a few photos.

Party Like a Rock Star

One of my close friends who decided to throw a themed party to celebrate her birthday this year where everyone would show up dressed like a rocker from any decade they wished, and party like a rock star. She asked me if I would do an invite flier, which I was more than happy to do for her. Above is the flier, and below is the stand-alone illustration. I am happy to say that she was pretty stoked when she first saw it. The party was a great time for friends and fun.

The Mustache Bandito…

So I’m pretty pumped to have been part of the Beards and Brushes show. There was a lot of awesome artwork. Thanks to Sean from Jaxbeard for putting on the show. You can check out pictures from the show here

For the show I decided to do the Mustache Bandito. If any of you are familiar with the Mustache Bandits, the Bandito is just another one of the Bandits only he is spanish. So don’t try speaking english to him because he won’t understand a word your saying. Below is a picture of him. He is one cool dude. Also I included a picture of Jim, Sara, and  I rocking the Mustache Fridge shirts. If anyone still wants one, hit us up and we will make it happen. We are selling them for $5. 

may the force be with you,
