Humdinger Design Process

Image

When Richmond entrepreneur Casey Werderman contacted me to do a label for his all natural craft soda, I was psyched. He told me the philosophy this logo was to embody: live a rip-roaring, risk-taking, follow your dreams kind of life. A real Humdinger. Of course we kicked around hundreds of ideas, including images of daring stunts, glorious injuries and blue-grass geezers.

Eventually we came upon something we both really liked–a hummingbird! He went through many evolutions too, of course.

Here’s a pic of the fridge at The Black Hand coffee shop, my first glimpse of Humdinger on the shelves! Check out Humdinger’s facebook page http://www.facebook.com/Humdingercraftsoda .

Brewed in Church Hill, Humdinger has a mission to give back to the community. I should also add that it is freakin’ delicious.

Catnip Study #1

Here’s a piece I made for the upcoming “CAT SHOW,” organized by my buddies, at the Hungerford Building in Rochester, NY.

Catnip acts as an artificial pheromone, and cause behavior similar to¬† that of a female in heat. I had in a mind a series of drawings by a man dosed with LSD, as well as Klimt’s painting of Danae.

If you’re in Rochester, check out the opening of “THE CAT SHOW,” First Friday, April 6. Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it up from RVA, sorry dudes! Here’s the event: http://tinyurl.com/7l4y4cy
