Story Posters
I’ve always been a fan of silent storytelling. My intent is always to make a narrative that works as a piece of art. I love trying to combine the flow of a story with the aesthetics of color, balance, shape and form. Some end up more art than story and others more story than art but that’s what makes each one a unique experience.

The newest Story Poster is FLY CAT.

Scratchboard Art
There's something about scratchboard that really appeals to me. It's a subtractive process that's closer to scupture in my mind than illustration.

Etsy - Scratchcards
As with most things, Mr.Oblivious began with a question. How many times can you tell the same joke and still make it funny (or at least reasonable funny?) It never dawned on me growing up how many cartoons I watched that were totally the same story with just a different take. I loved them anyway no matter how many times I watched and still do.

A few examples of various logos, posters, and icons I've done over the years. Do you have any specific needs for graphic design, logos and branding? Let's talk! I am always available for freelancing.
