Thrive Sustainability Conference Banner

The Thrive Sustainability Conference took place in 2012 at Presence Studio in downtown Bellingham. It was a 2-day event of workshops, speakers, and art/creative events focusing on defining and expressing environmental concerns through the arts. This banner/illustration was I think over 50 feet wide, and maybe 4 – 4.5 feet tall. Created in Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. Client: The Sound Essence Project, Bellingham WA

Stone River Music Festival Campground Signs

Stone River Music Festival is a 3-day event with camping that takes place in Chandler Oklahoma the 3rd Weekend of September. The various campground areas have distinctive names and I was asked to create signs reminiscent of national park signs, created as 2-color silkscreens on a white flashing. These are templates that were made into silkscreens with the final signs cut out of wood in these shapes. Sketched on paper, scanned, final art produced in Adobe Illustrator. Client – 2014 Stone River Music Festival

Mountain Loop Scenic Byway Sign

I illustrated and designed this sign for the National Forest Service for the Mountain Loop Highway which loops around Darrington, WA. The signage re-design is part of a bigger plan to recast the depressed area of Darrington as a place and source of local pride. Darrington was also the site of the massive mudslide that took so many lives this past year. I have not been out to Darrington to see the signs, but I believe they are up, or will be up this spring, 2015. Sketched on paper, scanned, developed in photoshop, final art in Adobe Illustrator. Client: National Forest Service.

No Coal Trains Yard Sign

Yup, not the snazziest or most creative signage, but probably one of my best known signs. I developed this yard  design with local folk artist musician/humorist Dana Lyons to protest the health hazards and environmental threats posed by the movement of huge amounts of uncovered coal being transported through Bellingham and Whatcom county. These signs are available through this website: https://coaltrainyardsigns.wordpress.com/
