I designed a promotional piece for my rep to send out a couple of months ago. It was a really cool black muscletone french stock with black thermography and a label. Turned out nice. I'll post later.

Apparently the paper rep for the printer who handled the job submitted it to Freanh and I won an award for it. My first official accidental award. Here are a few scans.

Ahhh...Fall is in the air and some new stuff's a comin'

For the three of you who actually read this blog (that may be an overstatement)

This is by far my favorite time of the year. Which is a bit strange because it's the time of the year when nature dies a slow death on it's way to winter. Kind of depressing really.

Anyway...This is a beautiful time of the year, with the leaves changing and what not. It always inspires me and makes me ponder what this past year has held and what this upcoming year will hold.

I have a lot of ideas for Hucklebuck in '07. I will begin selling prints of my posters and other selected pieces. Screen prints and so on. I have been getting quite a bit of inquiry about this and I think it's time to go for it. I'd like to do limited editions and so on. We'll have to see how it plays out. I will also be launching FOUND™ as it's own brand and line of accessoriess including journals, clothing, coffee mugs and much more. I am hoping to begin licensing the products by mid '07 in major retailers. Again, we'll see how that plays out.

Keep an eye out for the next edition of FOUND™ coming soon. The upcoming book will be more polished than the first effort and will incorporate a pratical application for how to use found type in design. The city of focus will be Seattle. Should be pretty swank.

1" hucklebuck badges will be coming out soon as well to replace the free sticker.

This is a poster I just finished for a celebration to take place at the Westcott House (Frank Lloyd Wright House) in Springfield, OH. It's to celebrate the 113th bday of silent film star Lillian Gish who was born in Springfield. It's printed on manila newsprint.

New Editorial Illustration

Here are a couple versions of a collage/illustration that I just did for a magazine in NY-NY

The article it is for is about ways to protect your identity. I just brought in the thumbprint,retinal scan/id photo and so on. It came out pretty swell.

I judged the Champaign County Fair arts competition last week and while I was there I noticed a cool letterpress poster of "Big Time Wrestling" of which I happened to gank. With permission of course. I then noticed that it was an event for the fair this week. How could you pass up the chance to take in some middle aged guys that have no business wearing a singlet not to mention flying off of the top ropes like Superfy Snuka .

We went last night and these are the images I came away with.

Headlocks galore.

Off the top rope.

The Sheik of Araby. I dare not repeat what the crowd was yelling at this dude. The classic US vs. the Mid East

The American Hero. Pretty sure this guy just got done coaching his kids baseball game.

This old woman was heckling the wrestlers the whole time. It was amazing. Even more amazing was when she tagged in and preformed the most impressive belly to back suplex I have yet to witness.

MATTCHEW. I think this guy played cornerback in the 95-96 season for the Bucks. Riiight...

The restless crowd. Half of which thought every single thing that was happening was completely real and I heard numerous death threats hoisted out towards the Sheik of Araby...that's about the time that we quietly slipped away. My favorite part was when one of the "managers" got hit sqaure in the face by a full water bottle some guy threw into the ring. Ain't nothin fake about 16 oz in the grill.

I've got more pics, but I think this gets the idea across

20/20 Design short...

What not to do in graphic design...


I have begun work on the new Stageworks stuff for 06-07. It's turning out pretty nice. I love to do work for Art groups who appreciate it. Here's a preview for the brochure. I want to bring the bird icon into prominence this season. Enjoy...

I have been contracted to design all of the promotions for the 06-07 performances produced by Springfield Stageworks. Stageworks is an independent theatre company in my humble town of Springfield. The show for the 06-07 season are

By Yasmina Reza

By George Bernard Shaw

Directed by Walter Rhodes

By David Mamet

I think they all have some fun potential for posters and what not. American Buffalo is gonna be sweet.

For more info on Stageworks go to their website (not designed by me)

I will post in progress posters as they come along.

That's the news from the world of a Hucklebuck.

So I have given in to the big bad blog. I will be launching the new Hucklebuck site in the next few weeks and on this blog I will be writing on many issues: my experiences as a typography professor, the current trends in the design world and much more. It actually will be far from sucky I am pretty sure. Stay posted for...postings.
