This poster was designed for a restaurant and bar in beautiful Mt. Adams in Cincinnati, Ohio.

020 Blue Wisp Jazz Club


Woodcut illustration commissioned for a small jazz club in Cincinnati, Ohio. Finished in 1997, this was always one of my favorite posters becaue of the execution and looseness of the drawing.
Designers, especially one that that has been around as long as I have, tend to overly perfect an illustration and in this I feel like I stopped and left it alone when I should have. A few more minutes and I would have ruined it!

019 Prize Fights


I always loved the old boxing broadside posters you'd see in a gym years ago. The bold and colorful graphics coupled with the names of long-forgotten fighters just make for great "found" art. I pride myself on redesigning posters like this to the specifications found on the originals from the 1940's, 50's and 60's. The typefaces (fonts) used match the kind used at the time and I can customize each one to have any names you would like on it. This was originally designed for a Hollywood prop house and like many other posters in this collection may be seen in the background of movies, television shows and commercials. Colors may be customized for a small additional price.

017 1956 Newport Jazz Festival


being a huge jazz fan, I always loved the 1950's record covers with their neo-abstract ( I just made that up) drawings on them to represent visually the rhythms found on the record. With this in mind as an inspiration, I designed this poster for the fictional 1956 Newport Beach Jazz Festival. This was originally designed for a Hollywood prop house and like many other posters in this collection may be seen in the background of movies, television shows and commercials.
