old art

and from around 92-93:
one of my favorite shows was Ducktales, and combining that with my Little League experiences seemed natural.

more graphic design work

I had an opportunity to do some more graphic design work recently, for a small business out of Webb City, Missouri. They gave me this logo--and asked if I could do something to spice it up a bit. so after a bit of tinkering I came up with a few ideas, and sent them the following mock-ups:
