Justice League Invitation

My son is obsessed with superheroes, and with his birthday quickly approaching, I figured his party invitations should reflect that. Based heavily on Kevin Maguire’s Justice League covers from the 1980s, I dropped Mikey in between the big 7 of the DC universe — Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter.

I used Blambot’s exceptional comic fonts on the back of the invitation to create a logo for the party, and lay out the event details.

The response from my “client” — Mikey — has been extremely positive, and while it pained me to have Batman smiling, sometimes you need to put your client’s needs above your own.

LA Galaxy Holiday Party

After an upsetting exit from the MLS Cup playoffs in the first round, the LA Galaxy were left with an empty stadium for the night of the MLS Cup. Why not throw a Holiday Party?

The Galaxy wanted a cheeky promo video that was heavily inspired by early Internet eCards. Throw in a little bit of pixel art, and this is the final result!

MLS Bomberman

I was contacted by Major League Soccer (MLS) to create a bunch of sprites for a Bomberman-inspired video they were putting together.

I got to pixelate Pirlo and Villa from NYCFC, dos Santos and Gerrard from the LA Galaxy, as well as the soccer ball, field, and ensuing explosions.

It was a blast working on the project, and the After Effects wizardry MLS used to create the video is amazing. Plus, the video was viewed over half a million times on Facebook alone, so the exposure was incredible!
