Fantasy Football

So, football season is right around the corner, and by football I mean the true blue American version better known as Grid Iron in these parts. Anyway, I am pretty excited for the season to kick off, especially since I have a fantasy team this year. Yesterday I took the time to design a logo for my team, the Bearded Bandits. Hope you like it, and hopefully they do well.

Presidential Minimalism: Theodore Roosevelt

Here's another illustration in my Presidential Minimalism series, and my favorite US President, Teddy Roosevelt.  He Truly was the "Man in The Ring,"a courageous Soldier, an avid outdoorsman and conservationist, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, and an influential architect of the early global economy ie the Panama Canal. Hope you enjoy!

Royal Minimalism: The Queen

Since I am currently living in a commonwealth country and they seem to have a certain reverence for the royal family I thought I'd take a break from presidents for a week to to depict another famous national figure head, Queen Elizabeth.  The timing seemed appropriate with Australia preparing to celebrate the Queen's birthday with a long weekend and the Diamond Jubilee celebration coming to a close in England.      Hope you enjoy!

Presidential Minimalism: Abe Lincoln

Third President in the series, good ol' honest Abe. I found this portrait especially fun to illustrate his long lanky face and famous chinstrap beard made Abe very easy simplify and characterize.

Presidential Minimalism: George Washington

George Washington is the first in series of Presidential portraits I created as an exercise to help me become more familiar with working with Adobe Illustrator. The exercise was all about keeping the portraits as simple as possible yet still highly recognizable. I am fairly happy with the results and will be posting the rest of the series over the next few weeks.
