Here are a few examples of my 2D works.
This was a fun side project I dad as a surprise for a buddy. He had become infamous for bringing his deviled eggs to our monthly potlucks. Someone busted his chops about always bringing the same thing, so he wrote an incredibly vague description for them to make it look like he was bringing something else. Well, this was the label I created for his newly rebranded tasty treats.
This was a commission piece for YouTube SteveDog. This was a design for his profile picture and his YouTube banner. The reason this looks so blank is because it has to be viewable on TVs, PCs, tablets, and on mobile. You can view his channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvBWANYiNmO9lbgeb9kaCyg
This was a fun personal project I created for my sisters Brides Maids. They had all recreated the poses from the poster for the movie ‘Brides Maids,’ so I totally had to help them by adding the rest of the posters elements.
This piece was chosen and designed to be used for the cover of a Strongsville newsletter. It was sent to every home and school in the city of Strongsville.
If you couldn’t tell, this is my personalised version of the iconic Barack Obama “Hope” poster. This was created after a buddy made a joke about my headshots looking “presidential”
This is the logo and storefront signage designed at super specific dimensions for an electronic store downtown Pittsburgh.
These are the digital mockup and real life version of a trade show booth created for THORS eLearning Solutions. You can visit them here: http://thors.com/
This design was a custom order for a big Elvis Presley fan to be applied as decals on his cornhole boards.
This was just a quick job I created for fun. My girlfriend took a picture of our cat Jocko being rather photogenic. I didn’t tell her I was going to do this, so it was a bit of a surprise.
This was a promotional flyer created for Dream Weavers Day Spa for guests of hotels all over Pittsburgh.
This is a before and after shot of a mural created in 2005 at Polaris Career Center. The Career Center was comprised of 7 different high schools. Each section has the school’s logo and colors.
This is just another quick example of some print work. This design was for a Pittsburgh Chiropractor.
This was a client job for a surprise party in honor of a breast-cancer survivor.
This was a promotional movie poster for a short film called ‘Close to Home.’ I also had the privilege to star in it. The story is great, but my acting wasn’t the best. You can watch the whole thing here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNree9FxD70
This was a commission design for a set of Kent State Cornhole boards.
This was a project to create the cover art of a book that does not exist.This was a project to create the cover art of a book that does not exist. I was a big fan of the Halo novels growing up, so I used some concept art, and some existing book elements to create my own cover.
This was an enormous print job I created for Ninja Entertainment downtown Pittsburgh, Ninja app included. This thing was bigger than I was.
This was a commission piece for a couple’s wedding announcement. They were big Beauty and the Beast fans, so this was a recreation of its original movie poster.
This is just a project I did for fun. The original photo is of us groomsmen at my sister’s wedding. Someone said it looked like we were in a boy band, so of course I went and turned it into an album cover. I then took it a step further and put the album cover onto an actual album and did my best to make it photorealistic, wrapping, stickers, and all.
This was a t-shirt that I designed as part of Skills USA, a competition against over 400 students in specific career-technical training areas.
This was part of a project where we had to design a guitar. This was created entirely in photoshop with a ton of players, but the concept was as simple as me wanting to see someone playing the violin like a guitar.
