A & W Nature Labs Rework- Facelift Web Site

 i have been working on a redesign for my Friends at A & W Nature Labs. I designed their previous website as they were starting up as a new coming making Minerals and attractants for deer. They really have a great scientific background and are simply applying it to their quality products. The new Site features a full ecomerce portion and will be Mobile and Tablet friendly.

The Site is due to launch SOON!

I would like to share a few of the banners and elements i have designed for the new site!

The Steps of a Photo retouching assignment

I got a call today from my friend Jessie at Whithner, with colleges getting ramped up, they need a little help with some photo retouching. Below I have the 6 basic steps I went through to accomplish the final artwork which will be an acrylic print about 30" x 40".

I did not use any filters with this project. Its all layer work, and hand rendered masks.

I hand drew with a wacom tablet the area that needed to be isolated.

I duplicated the bottom layer...added color variations.

 I duplicated the layer again, blurred it by eye and darkened the whole image.

I then used the mask to create a feathered area of warm, unblurred main area.

I duplicated the layer one more time, trimmed out the original isolated area...the end result is an etherial glow around the players.

Some final tweaking and some edge work...save and deliver. I cant wait to se them installed at Johns Hopkins University!

Typography Design for Blood Therapy Broadheads

My Friends Jerod and Justin at Blood Therapy Broadheads asked me to design a one color shirt based off the Traditional Jack Daniels Bottle label. After 5 or 6 rounds of deciding font usages, placement etc, the design is finished and heading out the door for Shirt production. I liked the design so much I made a fun little compliment piece just to give to them so they could use it for social media. Good guys, good client, I like delivering more then is expected.
