Just a collection of work I did for the Miramar OWC’s golf tournament waaaay back in 2009.  About time I posted it…

HMM-166 Helicopter Golf poster   Leave a comment

You may have already seen the retro posters I did for HMM-166 here and here, but I don’t think I’ve posted this one to the blog yet.

In short, my brother-in-law had some mechanical issues occur in-flight and needed to put his CH-46E down safe.  The closest spot was a San Diego golf course!  No one was injured and the aircraft was soon repaired and flown back to MCAS Miramar.  The poster commemorates this incident in a humorous way.

The golf club in the hands of the crew chief was a bit hard to make out, so I overemphasized the shadow a bit to draw attention to it.  The aircraft markings match those on the Phrog involved.

Movie Poster: Gone in 60 Seconds (1974 original classic)   Leave a comment

April 13th, Cinema Overdrive will run a screening of H.B. Halicki’s original 1974 Gone in 60 Seconds.  I had the honor of creating the poster for this show!  Originally, I thought about doing a white 60 MPH speed limit sign with ‘Gone in’ and ‘seconds’ painted on it – but that just seemed so ‘obvious’…   So I went with a vandalized 30 MPH Ramp sign instead.  I think the yellow color alone was a big improvement over the white speed limit option (plus it ties in with the whole ‘principal car’ color.  Here are some images for you (Oh, there’s a 3rd ‘hidden’ machine/vehicle in this poster – it can be seen on the actual poster – come see it at the show or check the Merchandise page where they’ll soon be posted for online sale here):

Movie Poster: MIA2 arrived and signed!   2 comments

Well, the screen prints of my “Missing in Action 2:  The Beginning” poster design arrived the other day in great shape from Nick and his team at The Half and Half in Columbia, SC.  Matt with Cinema Overdrive came over this weekend and we did the ‘signing ceremony’ thing!  Lots of fun talking about films and posters.  Really looking forward to the show this Wednesday at Raleigh’s Colony Theater at 8pm.  Posters can be purchased at the show, or pick them up online HERE.  Some shots for you (the poster looks even better in person – the ink has a great finish to it)…

House Work: Faux Finish Fireplace   Leave a comment

Here are some before and after shots of a fireplace I recently re-did in our neighborhood. The owners wanted something to help the mantle ‘pop’ off the wall a bit more, while adding some ‘character’.
