2022: In Review

Wow, another year has come and gone.

I was lucky to work with some amazing people and companies this year. Helping to build brands and artwork for folks who are talented and truly passionate about their work is what I love to do. I also got to spend some time with my friends and family, the most important of all.

Take a look below for more about what I accomplished and was inspired by in 2022.

I definitely did some growing – both flowers in my backyard and personally over the last year. I was challenged in many ways to keep pushing my artwork forward, while carving out time to have fun outside of work and learn some new things.

For the 2022 year, I worked as Creative Director for Old Pal. From campaign messaging to graphics to package design, we made some great strides. The cannabis industry is a tough one, so I’m extra proud of how much we accomplished..

Aside from winning some CLIO awards – We launched a 2 gram infused blunt SKU and also the Baked at Home Brownie Mix – a take on a classic weed brownie, made at home.

Working closely with 8 Street Makers, I worked on building an identity for the garment group and also the brand and vibe for Soft Cloth – a new fashion label making clothing that looks good while keeping comfortable. I made a series of marks and artwork for the brand.

I worked with my friends at Goodburn Sauce Co. to get set up with a website, some new bottle designs and swag for their ever tasty hot sauce. Look for more offerings in the New Year and sign up to the newsletter to get updated on where to get your sauce delivered to your door.

There is way more I can share, but these are some of the larger things that kept me going in 2022. I hope that 2023 will bring new learning and making. Cheers to a New Year.

Protest Bongs

THESE BONGS DON’T SMOKE!

UPDATE: Thanks for everyone who came out and helped make the world a better place. We raised $914 for Free Lunch an organization who provides healthy meals 7 days a week for people in need at Camp Esperanza, here in Austin. “Food is a right and no one should be deprived of it.”

The world is a really messed up place these days. Take a walk down the road and you’ll see the inequality and division of our selfish and often times hateful society at work.

I’ll be working this month to make some small sculptures and other artworks which will be on display at Yellow Jacket Social Club on Wednesday, August, 3rd. Hope to see you there.

Web Working

I helped my friend Molly update her website and tell her story a bit. Molly sent me a big box of inspiration and we used it to build this website. Molly is a collector and artist living in California and also runs a vintage clothing company called Squash Blossom Vintage. I designed this site to help show off what she does.

We’re working on updating the online store and adding bits and pieces here as time goes.

Gomer Update

Just made some sweet little tags for Elmer Gomer, so I thought I would post about them here and give a bit of an update. Things are cruising along for my little company down here in Texas called Elmer Gomer. I’m excited about some projects coming down the line, so make sure you follow the Elmer Gomer Instagram for more drops and news coming the rest of this year. Thanks for all the support!
