By day, I’m a project manager and IT guy for a company that makes talking devices for the blind. I work mostly from my left brain. So off the clock, I need a creative outlet, and t-shirt design has become one of them. As a jack-of-all-trades, I tend to jump between multiple projects, so I am also designing a board game and working on my next Dragon*Con costume.
My designs are mostly inspired by nerd culture – sci-fi, high fantasy, romantic adventure, and technology. The rolling golden corn fields of central Illinois, as majestic as they are, weren’t enough to fuel my imagination while growing up, so I turned to fantastic and magical worlds like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and various Saturday Morning Cartoons. Now, so many years later, I happily regurgitate them all for your wearing pleasure.
