A few fun things from the last 5 months

18th Street Brewery opened a new production facility and brewpub in Hammond, Indiana. This facility is much larger than our original Gary location. I was able to have some creative input into what went on with the interior. A few pics are in here of the space, along with a few random pics from Instagram showing my 18th Street labels that caught my eye. 

It's been a long, long time...

I have not posted nor updated in QUITE A LONG LONG LONG TIME! As you can see from my portfolilo I have been working with the 18th Street Brewery. Starting in (back in) January I happily took the position of 'Creative Director' for 18th Street Brewery. Things have been super busy. Things have been awesome. I'm stoked to be in this position and hope to keep up my own personal site. But that's not guaranteed. Below is the type of Illustration I do for 18th, so definitely keep an eye on 18th Street and our facebook page for going's on and new artworks.  

ELMHURST ART MUSEUM

This Friday, December 6th, I will have work in a five person curated group show at the Elmhurst Art Museum, presented by the Elmhurst Artist's Guild. The show is entitled 'Deviant Pop' and contains work by Joey Potts, Lana Crooks, Shawn Smith (of Shawnimals), Max Bare, and Andrew Thompson. The opening is from 7-9pm and the show runs until the 17th of January. More info here. Below is a detail of a much larger wood, freestanding sculpture piece that I built specifically for the show.
