The organization focuses on the scholarship, support, and commemoration of the duty it’s members and family have made as part of the 11th Calvary. This website is focused on communication with the members . related organizations, and the public. The Blackhorse Association uses this website to collect donations for operating expenses and scholarships that are offered to the families of fallen members of the 11th Calvary Regiment.
This website will never be finished for me, and it is annual contract with the Blackhorse Association. I hope to have a better revision soon because I feel the illustration and design were completed too quickly. The website uses WordPress for content management with a custom theme using the Funbox theme framework. The Blackhorse Association website uses a WordPress e-Commerce plugin to process and track donations to the scholarship and operating funds.
The Loose Caboose Coffee House in Monroe, Louisiana as owned and operated by my roommates. I even had a small percentage stake in the coffee house, and help out from time to time. Most of my assistance came in the form of creating cleaned up logos, newspaper ads, fliers, and maintaining the Loose Caboose web site.
This was an entry into the poster competition for the Ruston, Louisiana Peach Festival. I didn’t win, but this was my first semi-professional try at a fully digital illustration. At least I got a decent independent study grade.
A personal illustration piece. I think I used it as extra credit for a grade. It was completed before I moved to Monroe, Louisiana for my payed internship. I was frustrated with the move and this was my outlet.
This was a fictional company campaign completed for an interdependent study course. The fictional company was an on call support center specifically to help members of graphic design industry deal with production related problems. The student project was geared toward the creation of the logo and the creation of two digital illustration pieces. I’m still not happy with the final layout choices in the magazine ads.
Part demented self-portrait and experiment in airbrush illustration while a student at Louisiana Tech. The final execution was rushed and pretty terrible. The great thing was that the concepts used in airbrush illustration have stuck with me, so I’m glad I tried.
