Behance Network

For those of you who don't know what Behance Network is, it is a social network site for creative the exhibition of creative portfolios, projects, and collaborations. It allows you to set up a portfolio and showcase your work for free (pretty cool). Behance is becoming more and more popular and allegedly has millions of viewers monthly (including talent scouts for top brands). Right now Behance is an invitation-only based website. A few days ago I received an invitation to set up a portfolio site with them, which I intend to take advantage of. Hopefully soon everyone will be able to see my stuff on Behance.

We Belong Together! Shirt Design

We belong Together! I have been wanting to do a t-shirt with a “message” for some time and this is what I came up with. I know that another Eco shirt might be more of the same right now, but this is my first eco based design so I hope it is still enjoyable. I wanted it to feel like an animal kingdom chart with an array of different animals (with humans included) and have a written message that indicates that we are all meant to live together, harmoniously. The more that the human race grows, the more that we have to expand and the more that we expand, the more that we encroach on the territories of animals. I know that this is inevitable, but I think that we should pursue new ways to share our space with animals and harmonize instead of simply driving them out.

This shirt is available on my RedBubble storefront in several color variations.

Japanese Mon Shirt Series

This is a new set of shirts that I created based on Japanese Mon (Family Crests). A few are recreations of old family crests from Japan, but most are my own designs based off of similar themes used in traditional Mon. All of these shirts are available at my RedBubble store front.

Featured in Blanket Magazine

My submission for the newest issue of Blanket Magazine (The Portrait Issue) was picked up and featured with a lot of other photographs and designs. Blanket is a great conduit for exhibiting work (for the outgoing artist) and drawing inspiration (for the passive art connoisseur). The picture is actually a reflection of my wife that I captured off the glass of our hotel during a trip to Mexico.

Just Married

Sorry, once again, for the hiatus. I have been engulfed in a whirlwind of chaos lately. My girlfriend and I recently decided to get married and we have spent the last couple of months planning our wedding and the thereafter. Everything went down on June 20th, so I am now a happily married designer, lol. I will be posting some pics from the trip we took, shortly.

Revolution featured on Little Wonders Blog

I was recently contacted by Damien Mason who asked for permission to post one of my works, Revolution, on a blog he hosts called Little Wonders. Little Wonders is a compilation of inspirational works of the highest caliber found on RedBubble. I very graciously accepted and a post for my print has been made. Damien Mason is a very talented illustrator and I would recommend anyone to check out his work via the link listed above.

Mask of Terror

New shirt design available for sale at the DesignbySolo Shop. Modeled after an iron Ressi Men style mempo (Japanese Samurai battle mask). The mask design is from the Momoyama period in Japan and was employed by the samurai to inflict debilitating fear upon enemies whom they faced in close combat.
The design is off-white on white to simulate the face emerging from the mist or fog.

Bubblesite Storefront

Got my new Bubblesite Storefront up and running today courtesy of RedBubble. Here you can view some of my apparel and art designs which are available for purchase. Check it out here.


This is a design-for-screen, typography based work that I did for a competition a month or so ago. The premise for the competition was to create a design that described fear in some way. This is a compilation of quotes relating to fear from the NIV Bible.

Logo Designs

Here are some recent logo designs that I have done shown in the manner which I usually present to clients. Logo designs are for Limelight Productions and Pertuset Car Wash, respectively. View more logos that I have designed here.

Shirt Designs

I am sorry that my posts have been non-existent for a while, but that doesn't mean I haven't been working. Here are some shirt designs I did for a company. The first is based on the film Cry Baby with Johnny Depp, the second is based on the anime show Naruto, and the third is an original design of my own.
