I recently joined the Dribbble network. I often keep a distance from communities like this for no other reason then not to spread myself thin but… several people I follow on Twitter and Instagram have work here so I thought to jump in! It’s mostly what you see on my site but a few custom lettering, type and other pieces I keep specifically for this network. If your in the “neighborhood” drop over and have a look! SWEYDA
I decided to start drawing more to break out of the digital routine. I figured I needed a practice piece to get used to hand drawing letters again so I just jumped in. The custom lettering piece didn’t come out like I would have wanted but the getting re-aquainted with the process and techniques was worth it. I’v already decided on the second piece and will be starting son.
If you know Wakeboarding you know Liquid Force! This is three custom lettering pieces I did for the upcoming line. Each piece called on my skills to deliver custom type work in various forms to represent the overall brand. To see more of the type pieces check here.
It’s important for me to always stay close to my roots. Since I’m an illustrator (traditional pencil to paper) this means taking routine breaks from the mouse / digital world and working it out with the basic tools. The hand lettering here was a 30 minute exercise and exploration for nothing more then to play and learn!
In the 2000 Gravity Games Carey Hart attempted the first ever backflip in competition and left the landscape of Freestyle Motocross forever changed. When I was asked to do a few pieces for the Hart and Huntington brand I obviously jumped at the opportunity. Heres just one example of a custom illustration that was picked up. Jump over to the apparel section to see some additional work.
The latest addition to Los Logos came out ( a while back ) but the difference this time is that a bunch of my custom letters were chosen! This was the second year I attempted to get my typography in and was stocked to be chosen. A second plus is that they sent me two copies!
If it’s one thing I love it’s custom lettering, custom fonts, hand lettering… pretty much anything that involves type. I would consider myself average at best when it comes to fonts and typography. I only really got interested in all things type in the last few years. This is another custom font I’m playin around with called Diamond Tipped. Available in the shop soon!
