Wolf Projects - Graphic Design

Here's one of my latest graphic design projects. My clients are amazing and I'm so thankful they came to me for help. I created two different designs that they will be placing on t-shirts, posters, stickers and pretty much everything that they can to bring awareness. Regardless of where a person stands on the topic of the reintroduction of wolves, one has to admit they are a beautiful animal... They scare the crap out of me because they're HUGE and their calls are eery and strange but that fact of the matter is they're here now. So it's time for all beings to acclimate! I had a blast creating these two designs! Take a look!

If you would like, I'll create you something original just for you!!!

Kokanee Spawning Season

Imagine being one of the first explorers to come across our beautiful state of Idaho. Particularly in September around lakes and streams... The water turns RED! These are Kokanee, a stem of Sockeye Salmon who live in fresh water and this is their spawning season. 

I took a little trip with my Mom and Dad from their cabin in Pine to Fall Creek. The Kokanee do their very best to jump up the man-made culvert to continue their life cycle... It's pretty much impossible to get any further than this, like 99.999999%... This is truly the end for most of these fish after this part of the season and it's very natural but sad to see the weak. On the other hand it's extremely entertaining to watch the strong lunge from the fast passed waters into the air, trying to jump roughly 6ft distance to make it into the culvert. View on the see the glowing red that these awesome fish radiate!

Mom, Dad & SACS - two of my best friends!!!

Gorge Friends - Dave Matthews Caravan • 2011

This year was by far the most epic of all seven consecutive years that I've spent at the Gorge during Labor Day weekend where we gather for the Dave Matthews Band... and this years Caravan!!!! A huge reason this trip was so awesome is because of my three other traveling companions and of course seeing our friends from Canada!

Thank you all. Memories forever!
