ESPN - Super Bowl Coverage Art I was very excited to be contacted by art director Lucas Nickerson over at ESPN.  Lucas is the guy that develops all the awesome video effects for Sports Center and other ESPN shows. Under his direction I developed close to 40 pieces of artwork to be used on ESPN during the week leading up to the Super Bowl.  The image on the left was used as a “bump out” on Sports Center the whole week and several other pieces were used through out the week as well. Method:  Digital chalk look method. Below is some of the artwork submitted and the final animated results. I provided the art separated out into parts in a Photoshop file for ease of manipulation for animation. The animation was done in-house at ESPN.

Gift card design - gift card artist - gift card designer - gift card illustrator SOHO Boutique in Augusta, Georgia wanted a unique design to get their customer’s excited about buying gift cards for their family and friends.  I developed the art on an actual chalkboard with chalk at about 5 feet wide by 3.5 feet tall.  I then took a high res photo of the board, did a little touch up in Photoshop and it was off to the printer.  The client received a high res JPG set to her printer’s color and bleed specifications.  The cards came out great!
