TBT – Organic Man Redux

For Throwback Thursday, thoughts go to this photo of Stefan Bergill, organic man. It is baseball Spring Training time, Earth Day is coming up and there he is. The interview is as relevant as when I first did it. I have known Stefan Bergill since lived out West and he ran Patagonia’s Beneficial T’s program.…

Web Wednesday: Arsenal

The Arsenal may very well be a designer/printer’s best friend.  It’s chock-full of templates, filters, vectors, even business resources (plenty of freebies too).  Best, it’s all quality stuff presented tastefully.  Whether you are doing design or production art, their products will you augment your work.

Throw Way Way Back Thursday

This screen is the first frame I made for the first commercial job I ever did, for Ken Brown Designs.  The image is from an ad from an old joke catalog, for some weird ass face paint. I exposed the image with a 150 watt light bulb and a pie plate reflector. Instead of a…
