Working on doing some screen printed shirts with my friend Nick Sommer. Check out some initial mock-ups below.

Holiday card for horse fence company Buckley Fence.
Buckley Idea Genesis, LLC is my Dad’s physical product sourcing, engineering, and design company.

Logo sketch I did by hand (super high-tech highlighters and regular pens) to work off of:
Rough vector logo I did based on above sketch:
I did this straight-on view for Dave to convert this into a 3D model in Cinema 4D: Lettering I did by itself:
