"Oh Baby, I Like It Raw" - Fabric Pattern Design

Since I've been back from my adventures across the country I have been dying to find a place that serves great sushi. And since I have yet to come across the perfect sushi bar I figured I would put my taste buds into my art. This pattern was designed to be printed on a shirt, but I was also playing with the idea of placing it on some type of bag or wallet. Let me know what you guys think, and if you know of a good sushi place feel free to shoot me a line.

"Nature's Candy" - Fabric Pattern Design

The last time I worked on a pattern design I was in my senior year of college and it was for the inner pages of my portfolio. Although I loved what I had come up with, my teachers felt that my work fit best against a solid black portfolio. I ended up not using it but it created a want to work on more patterns. When I was asked to design t-shirts this was the first patterned image I came up with. The idea is based on the hunger for air, knowledge, and love. I have a couple more coming soon so definitely let me know what you think.

"Male Determination" - Personal Piece

I've been working on this piece for quite some time now and I have to say that I'm quite relieved that it's completed. I think every artist has at least one work that just never seems to get the amount of time which it deserves. Needless to say this one was definitely that piece for me. The image above is actually only one half of a pair of tattooed lovers. I was able to finish his female companion quite quickly (click to view), but when it came time for him I always had other images getting in the way of his completion. Either way I'm happy with the result (regardless of how long it took for me to get it done.)
