Maniacal - Unboxing

Hassan Lopez, creator and writer of the MANIACAL board game, has posted a few unboxing photos of the board game I designed with Hassan and Rob Guillory (illustrations). Logo, graphic design, and icon work by Kody Chamberlain. Looking forward to seeing this one up close and personal, but for now, feast your eyeballs on Hassan’s great shots of the factory edition of Maniacal from Eagle-Griphon Games.

Curt - Custom Knives

A shot of my sketch work for the CURT custom knives logo. From the start, the goal was to keep it clean and simple, to unify the logomark and the logotype as one unit, rather than having them exist as two separate pieces. Clean, simple, sharp. 

There were about seven sheets of sketch work in all, but this is the one where I figured it out. I kept going a few pages after this one, but I kept coming back to the sketch circled below—That's usually a sign that something is working, so I put a little more focus on it and sketched
