I think most designers and artists have that moment, while working on a project, when a spark brings all the elements together in a flash. I had one of those moments tonight while working on a logo for an employee council at work. The project started with the usual circle, a popular form at work. … Continue reading Sparks of creativity
Trying new approaches
I decided to start a more formal design presence, it was a pretty leap to take my signature design (at least one variation) and build a logo from it. Adding some blocky, almost stencil-like letters to convey the "DMD" concept was also an easy start, even with the second "D" being reversed to add a … Continue reading Trying new approaches
Not My Circus
I think we've all had those moments when it's all going down the tubes and you realize....not my circus, not my monkeys. In honor of this colloquial phrase to signify it's not your problem, I whipped up these little designs. Nothing fancy, just one of those spur of the moment ideas that I cranked out. … Continue reading Not My Circus
Coffee and doing sh..tuff
Was traveling recently, but this idea popped in my head. Seems the logical process for drinking coffee ad getting things done.

As EMS is constantly fighting Death to save their patients, I turned … Continue reading I am become life
Got the latest round of patches from Mutiny Shop. One is the Area 51 Security patch, the other is the "Secret Kiwi" design a coworker requested for some Kiwi friends of his. Overall not too bad, especially the patch quality. Probably made some of the text on the Area 51 patch a little too dark, … Continue reading New patches
When a can isn’t enough…
We've all heard the phrase 'can of whoop a**". I whipped this design up for those times when a can isn't enough. Introducing the 55-gallon drum of whoop a**! This is the censored version, there are two other less censored ones.
Marvin Would be Proud…
In honor of the impending 'invasion' of Area 51, aka Groom Lake, I threw together a patch the security teams could wear.
What’s the Frequency…
One of my other hobbies, albeit less attended to is, is Amateur ("Ham") Radio. I've had my license since 2008 and have a few handheld radios. At work, we have a group of Hams (in more ways than one) that chat about a lot of things including radios. The other day, one of the Hams … Continue reading What’s the Frequency…
More Product Exploration
Had a friend who runs a side screenprinting business ask about a sticker company, Rockin' Monkey (no association to Data Monkey). So, I decided to try them out as they offered glow-in-the-dark stickers. The test run came in today. I got out my little photo studio box and took some quick snaps of the stickers. … Continue reading More Product Exploration
