Cut and Paste Los Angeles 2010 / Homer + gummi bear in a chocolate car

Homer and his giant gummi bear homie driving around in a chocolate Hershey car.

This was my test round entry for Cut & Paste 2010: Los Angeles: digital design tournament. (http://cutandpaste.com) 15 minutes to design from scratch. Made it to the finals in '09 but I didn't make it this time around. I'm still pretty happy about my piece though. And it was fun going out there for the test round. Just like last year, the test round topic was bliss! On to the next. :-)

Kevin Hart is not cocky.

Kevin Hart was in Big Boy's Neighborhood a week or two ago. Funny interview throughout but this had to be his funniest line: "I'm not cocky... but my swagger is." Laughed out loud for real. More than a week later, I (personally) still find it funny. So much so, that I had to slap this together really quick. It's not about the design though, it's about the swagger. lol Peace -vince.

West Valley 580

This design was intended for a charcoal colored shirt. Large print on the back and a smaller print on the front over the heart. I love blogging about the process when I can. :D

This shirt is for the West Valley CHP. They have an annual ride or race from Baker to Las Vegas. This isn't usually my style but it was fun to work on. Plus it gave me more practice with my tablet that I got a few months ago. Intuos 4!
