I figured I'd start one of these. Easy way to raise awareness of my graphic design. I'll start off by posting a new thing I had to do for class. Easy enough. It's actually the first thing I've made for class that I actually like. I'd love to hear some feedback. I'll continue to post more of my art here, as long as I don't cry too hard from your harsh words.

Here's a link to a high res version.

Looks pretty good! I like the oldskool background texture, flows in nicely with the blue. Real stylish :P

Did you actualy do anything besides change the colour of the picture? Just looks like fancy filters with a "cork" texture in the background.

Maybe i'm wrong so let me know , but if you just got images and changed them, this isn't really your work.

well, that's what plenty of graphic designers do. The project is a collage. I kinda specialize in them. Though I have put my own handdrawn art into a piece before.

I also kinda take offense to the fact that you say my work isn't reaslly mine. Eduardo Recife mostly uses other peoples images, changes them around, and turns them into beautiful things. I took the effort to collect all of these images (all legally obtained for non-commercial use) and arranged them into their own body. I'm not saying it's good, but I am saying it's mine.

Here's a shirt design I made. It's apparently being sold now at Ryan Dunn's store. Here's a link. It's actually pretty big bullshit. I gave this guy my design to help him out with his shirt company. I saw he was selling them to Random Hero, and asked if I could recieve any of those profits. The asshole never even responded. I know I shouldn't have given it to him for free, but I was just so pumped to see my work actually get printed.

If you don't believe me, I've got the psd. It's at my folks house and I don't have it on the internet anywhere.

Oh here's a link to the guy who doesn't respond to my messages's MySpace store: Berlin Co.

Here's a shirt I did for the band seeking surreal. I haven't gotten to see it printed yet, but I can't wait. I really like this piece. Funny note though, the band asked me to cut off the shadow under the guys nose. They said it looked too much like Hitler.

They were right, I thought it was Hitler at first.

This is a shirt I made for Eleventh Hour Co. As you can tell by the first page of their site, it went over with them pretty smashingly. I believe they're still having a sale for 50% off and free shipping. Here are the details.

I'm supposed to get some royalties for this, so help a brotha out!

Or just appreciate the art.

I'm happy either way

Here's a flyer I made for one of the most amazing shows I ever attended/played. All the bands on this flyer you should check out. They're all on MySpace and range from things like the Dismemberment Plan to bitchin' hardcore (more like the 80s, not so metal).

Mine was Gentlemen Congressional, we're dead now though.

Yeah, I thought it was hitler :/

These all look super professional. I'd expect to see them on a shirt, and it's cool that you're getting to do business for your pictures.

I don't know if you think I took these photos, but they are stock.

Anyways, yeah, I don't think there are many people on NG who do this kind of collage-esque stuff. They seem mostly like purists who only draw their own graphics. Which is awesome by me. I just wonder if anyone else does this.

Oh, and all these pics are taken legally, which I repeat. I make sure that everything I use has no strings attatched. Getting sued is for the birds, kids.

Here's a shirt I made for my good buddies outclassed (I live with one of them). Any ways, I took some inspiration from one of their guitarists ("I think windmills are really cool"), and the others didn't share his sentiment, so no go on getting this one printed. It was still fun though and I still like it.

Well, like I said earlier, Recife does some pretty sick shit. I really don't have artists I like, though, just art that I like. I think people get too attached to names and it hurts their critiques. I do that with music, and it sucks.

MindChamber is pretty awesome though. And Luis. I've been involved a lot with NG lately, so those artists come to mind easily.

Here's a shirt I did for this metal band. I designed their CD too, but that's not worth posting. If you're really curious, it's on their music player as the album pic.

Clean. Everything looks really nice. That Berlin co. design is really nice, too bad about that asshole though.

Well thanks. Don't worry about him though. Shit happens.

And Cabbster, glad you found a band you like today.

I don't think I share your sentiment

Here's one I drew for my old band's cd, "Haunted Metropolis." I liked the simplicity of it, but some might say it's not enough. I figure it should go here either way though.

Here's a little higher res.

Here's a flyer I made for Outclassed (again) and Bearathon and their summer tour last year. Too bad they didn't get used (they got vomitted on).

Here's a bigger one.

This here's a cd cover I made for this band. I think I should say that YES I will make metal things, but I also love to do not metal design. Get it? Good.

Higher and Higher!

I made this as a top banner for this band's myspace. they took it down I guess. Their banner is still made by me though.

Here's what you really want.

Once again, if you're interested in having some graphics work done, message me here.

This one is my favorite so far. Totally digging the design. I would wear that shirt for sure. Your work is really nice. I like most of it. It is really clean and professional looking.
