I had a chance to design an AWESOME shirt for Drift Alliance. The idea was to make a throwback ‘tour’ shirt that showed everywhere that drifting has taken them. Tony ran this idea by me in passing… and it was just too amazing not to be made. For those of you unfamiliar with Judas Priest… it is a tribute to their ‘British Steel’ record cover.I’m super-excited how the design came out. It was a lot of fun to work on, and I learned a few new tricks to make vintage-looking graphics. I can’t WAIT to see these pressed up!
Finally finished up a new t-shirt design for Slide Style™. I’ve been wanting to make an over-the-top ‘METAL’ tee for a long time. I tried making other metal logos for it in the past with little luck… but out of nowhere I felt super-inspired, and cranked the logo out from scratch using the pen tool in Illustrator. I am beyond happy with the result. The shirts are printed on an old-school raglan tee for that added metal vibe.They are available now in limited quantities on Slide Style™!
rnI had a great opportunity to design Ryan Tuerck’s hero card for Gardella Racing. In addition to the card, I was also tasked with redesigning the Gardella Racing logo. Overall I am pretty stoked with the result! I would definitely love to wrench on more projects like these… so any of you FD teams in need… HOLLER.
This project started out as a way to help the Forza community in their painting efforts. I have received many requests for high-res graphics to use as reference in the painting process. I then used that as an excuse to get better acclimated with Adobe Illustrator, and create a comprehensive guide to the vehicle’s 2007 livery. I have always enjoyed technical drawings in their precise structure and perfection. One thing led to another, and the next thing I know… I spent an insane amount of countless hours creating this. I learned a lot about Illustrator in the process, and it is my hope that this will help any aspiring Forza painters re-create the car’s likeness.I have a ton of respect for everyone painting Forza replicas. I (still) don’t have a 360 to be familiar with the process, but as far as I know… the tools available are very crude and difficult to use. This painter’s pack took me FOREVER, and I already had most of the graphics on file! I cannot fathom how long it takes to create some of these replicas. Hats off to all you Forza painters for your hard work and attention to detail!Click here to download the Painter’s Pack. (7.4mb – 5400x3600px)12×18″ posters are available on Slide Style™.
