Flashback Cruz Art

This is the artwork for the 25th Anniversary Flashback Cruz which is held in Bend, Oregon.

Progressive Screen Printing contacted me about creating the artwork for their client the Central Oregon Classic Chevy Club.

All the base artwork was created in Illustrator then brought into Photoshop for additional detail and depth. Below is the Illustrator version of the main car which is also the winner of last year’s show.

Progressive was great to work with, they gave me all the details on what elements the client wanted in the design. The artwork was used for shirts and posters.

Dandy’s Drive-In T-Shirt Design

Dandy’s Drive-In in Bend, Oregon needed some t-shirts for their business and contacted me about a design they had in mind.

Dandy’s has been around since 1968 and their logo includes a certain styled lettering along with a skater-girl. They wanted to add additional elements for the shirt design like a Camaro along with a few adjustments to the skater-girl.

The adjustments they wanted to see to the skater-girl included adding pushed up long sleeves, change the shorts to jean shorts and add more detail to the skates.

When making adjustments like this sometimes I draw directly on screen and in other cases I sketch on paper first. In this case I sketched on paper first and then later scanned the sketch, redrawing it all in illustrator.

Originally designed for black ink on white and/or light colored apparel they also needed a version for black shirts. There are times in which the same artwork can be used but with this design a version for black shirts needed to be created.

This project went as smooth as any project can go! Dandy’s was great to work with, they knew what they wanted and gave me excellent instructions.

Here is a photo of the two of the girls who work at Dandy’s Drive-In wearing the new shirts.

Hot Rod Halloween Shirt Designs

These Hot Rod Halloween shirt designs are from the stencils I designed and posted about earlier. While drawing the pumpkins stencils I got the idea that these would also look great on t-shirts.

For those of you who are interested, I got the shirt mockup templates from an article called “Huge Collection of T-Shirt Design Mockup Templates“.
