Shirt design created for a National Aviary Halloween event. A combination of water color textures, hand painted typography, photo manipulation, and digital painting in Photoshop.
FEDE PASTA RESTAURANT
To give this restaurant a unique entrance wall I handcrafted the company name using letters made from 124 gnocchi boards previously utilized to make their signature pastas. This approach produced both a great earthy worn look, and upheld a great bit of symbolism. I hand painted the background logo and arched type to complete the look.

This illustration was created to grace the cover of Market Districts monthly newsletter. The hamburger and shake where both hand drawn with pencil. I then scanned, cropped, and placed those drawings in Photoshop were I digitally added color and some final touches.
BIKE PITTSBURGH SHIRT
I always like to create my own reference material whenever applicable, and this is design is no exception. The bike image was created using a picture of my own, and the bike tread was created by running a mountain bike tire coated with ink over a long sheet of paper. After some designing/editing in Illustrator and Photoshop this is the finished result.
Created in Photoshop to be used as a Facebook cover photo and banner for the bar/club the Blacklight District.
PERRIER WATER SURFBOARD
This illustration was made on a full size fully functional surfboard. I applied a layer of chalkboard paint on top to allow easy change of the price point and because eventually the surfboard would be erased and reused for another product or event. The finished product hung from the ceiling over a display of stacked cases of the water.
