Originally a concept of an updated hex sign that better represented Lancaster PA, turned into a 1st place winner for a competition against fellow classmates. Garden Spot Village is a local retirement home that holds an annual marathon race every year and gave the senior illustrators the task of designing their t shirts and medallions for the 2020 race. With the theme of this race being “Lancaster Heritage” I took to this piece to create something that could represent Lancaster Pa in a more modern way. Using my illustration style to show aspects personal to Lancaster like horse and buggies, red roses, and corn. I also took the opportunity to implement color coordination to make a design that could easily be screen printed for future t-shirts and that also gave a cleaner feel overall. This was a great opportunity and was able to get a few t shirts and medallions for myself see those down below along with some other fun images!
Here is an illustration that I worked on during my last year of college with a classmate of mine and graphic designer Kevin Foss. His thesis was an entire magazine named Supervillain Magazine that focused on Hip-Hop legends; this of course made a perfect set up for a collaboration. The story takes on the late great beat maker J Dilla, with a look at his love for music and donuts.
