Brushfire Records T-shirt

Here are my entries for Creative Allies' contest to design a T-shirt for Brushfire Records.

Brushfire Records was started in 2002 by Jack Johnson and longtime friend Emmett Malloy at the Mango Tree studio in Hawaii to release soundtracks for their surf films under Woodshed Films (then called The Moonshine Conspiracy). The label allowed Jack to release his music as well as connect and support fellow artists that they liked and respected. Brushfire Records has since moved to Los Angeles, where they continue releasing new music and films from their solar-powered studio The Solar Powered Plastic Plant.

They are streaming the albums they have released on their website. The music is charming and relaxing, so I wanted to create a design that had a similar feeling:

There was a two-color limit, so it was fun making different combinations and little variations for each color scheme. Which do you like?  :]

Little steps.

Here's an experiment I did to try out some of the things I've been mulling over. I'm not entirely sold on the results, but I'd like to think it's a step in the right direction.

This was primarily an excuse to try out my scanner and the copper paint I got recently.
It's really dumb, but I think I got so eager to try the new scanner I got creative dam because there were too many ideas going crazy. I guess it carried over because I ended up with two versions on somewhat opposite ends of the spectrum...

Which one is your favorite?  :]

Priscilla Ahn gig poster

Building upon the image I made inspired by 'One Day I Will Do,' I made a gig poster for Priscilla Ahn's upcoming show in LA at the Bootleg Bar with guests The Parlour Suite and Communist Daughter.

I added the swirly details connecting the names and recreated the 'A' in order to make it more easy to read.

One Day I Will Do

Inspired by Priscilla Ahn's song 'One Day I Will Do.'

I used flowers that impart feelings of hope, overcoming anxiety and challenges, and growth  :]
