So how did he end up here at Tatshirts.com? HE WON THE DESIGN CONTEST that's how!
Not only is Jeff a professional musician but he's quite the graphic artist as well! He started out just making designs for E.T.E. to save money. (typical band protocol, believe me, I've been there myself!) But when you're good, you're good and his work started to get noticed. Now he does designs for other bands, and the MMA. Yup. That would be the Mixed Martial Arts fighting league. Damn huh? I know!
I talked to Jeff a few days back and asked him about the art aspect of his creative existence and was pleasantly surprised by one of the people that he takes inspiration from. Tatshirts own $500 design contest winner, Chadlonius! See, the community really does work! Others that he looks to for a uplift? Godmachine, Hydro74, Maxx242 and PaleHorse Studios to name a few. Sounds like a great group to pull from!
His work starts on paper and then gets imported into Illustrator to clean up the lines and add some depth to his pieces. His attention to detail is awesome and I love his loose sketchy style. As you can see from his $500 winning design, Love and Life, bottom right, his eye for detail coupled with his free flowing lines makes for a marriage of eye popping boldness and details for days! I personally love this style and I look forward to seeing more from Jeff in the future.
