"There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again." -Elizabeth Lawrence

I count myself among the privileged who got to grow up in Kentucky. There’s really nothing like it. I was asked to create this eye chart using Kentucky items and though it would fit in a child’s room for sure, I think it would be at home almost anywhere.

You can snag one of the 50 prints Friday over at Kentucky for Kentucky.

"There is no justice without sin."
I created this piece for Shortlist’s Alternative Movie Poster Gallery. I had fun creating something with visual tension.

"Book ‘em, Danno." -Jack Lord as Steve McGarrett, 1968
1968’s Hawaii Five-O coined the famous phrase “book ‘em”, with suave Jack Lord as Steve McGarrett. The long-running series wowed viewers with oftentimes gritty story lines and beautiful island vistas. In 2010, a new generation of crime genre fans came to know ‘Five-0’ through Alex O’Loughlin as McGarrett. “Book ‘Em”, is a tribute to both the old and the new with a bright tip-of-the-hat to the gorgeous islands they call home.

“There is a magic in that little world, home; it is a mystic circle that surrounds comforts and virtues never known beyond its hallowed limits.” -Robert Southey

Let me outline this for you: Kentucky is full of awesome. From the birthplace of Bluegrass and Lincoln to the edge of the Appalachians, there’s no place like a Kentucky home. The boundaries of the state are like a container full of rippling green fields and lush forests, honey warm bourbon, rich chocolate-hued horses wearing ruby roses, the obsidian sheen of coal, and the glitter of gold. Among the other fabulousness, I’ve included the state bird, flower, and tree. And really, how wicked is that state motto?

The great colors for this piece came from that great vintage postcard (source here), a shot of the Rathskeller in downtown Louisville’s Seelbach. If you’d like a print (or a t-shirt, tote bag, or throw pillow) of my Kentucky “State Lines” design you can visit my Society6 store.

United we stand, divided we fall!

“You don’t get heaven or hell. Do you know the only reward you get for being Batman? You get to be Batman.” -Neil Gaiman
I love Batman. I don’t know what my life would be without the caped crusader. He’s a master detective and he knows light wouldn’t exist without darkness. I’ve seen a lot of 75th anniversary tributes this year so I thought I’d toss my cowl in the ring. You may or may not be able to tell, but one of my biggest design influences was Batman: the Animated Series. Here’s to many more years of Batman!

"Space travel is life-enhancing, and anything that’s life-enhancing is worth doing. It makes you want to live forever." -Ray Bradbury

There’s something about the space shuttle that takes me back to a time when those launches were like watching history and future all at once. I miss them terribly, the hope they carried. This image came to me as I tried to sleep one night, a child’s toy, a fun ride, the hopes and dreams of a nation and the world, unplugged… but ready. Dream to Ride!
