Pedal of the Day Logos

Well, it’s been a while since I posted here, been wicked busy with work and life. Here are a couple of logos I recently did for a side company I started, Pedal of the Day, where we review guitar/bass effects pedals, one a day. We also encourage other musicians to submit reviews of their favorite pedals and comment on others’ reviews, to get some good discussions going about what gear is good, what isn’t, and how it can all help improve your sound. Click either logo to head over to the site and check it out if you have a free minute, and hope you like the logos! Thoughts are always welcome, of course.

The New iPhone: What To Expect


As we approach the upcoming World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) from Apple this morning, many questions are flying around about what we should expect from the technology giant, and one of the main items of speculation, of course, is the new iPhone. Will it be the iPhone 5S released first this summer, followed by a potential release of an iPhone 6 in the fall? Will the ‘Home’ button finally be cast aside, as was suspected for the iPhone 5? When will they launch iOS 7, and will it already be integrated into the new devices? These and many other questions will be answered shortly, but let’s take a look at what the rumor mill thinks will happen.


Due to the ease of scratching that came along with the iPhone 5, there may be a plastic/metal hybrid material that makes up the case for the new phone(s). This could be based on the easy-to-scratch problem, but some also say it could just be used to make a cheaper, budget iPhone to distribute at a later date. Remember, the company has said repeatedly that cheaper versions of the iPhones were on their way, and it appears that we will continue to wait for that as well. Storage may upgraded in these phones as well, possibly up to 128GB. They put that technology into an iPad, so it seems feasible that it could be incorporated here as well. The screen will most likely get an update, too, hopefully to 1080p Full HD resolution, and the camera is rumored to perhaps have a 12-megapixel sensor, which would be a significant upgrade from the 8MP in the iPhone 5.


Other rumors swirling about include wireless charging, an upgraded quad-core A7 processor, and possibly even Gaze Detection Technology, where the device would be able to tell if you are currently looking at the screen or not. Alas, we’re going to have to wait a few more hours to find out all the juicy details, but one thing’s for sure: we’re all hoping that the announcements Apple makes today will be mind-blowing, earth-shattering and knee-buckling. With all the technology that other companies are putting out right now, they need it.

Idaho Forest Products Commission T-Shirt is Here

Well, you can finally get your hands on it. The design I created for Arbor Day 2013 for the Idaho Forest Products Commission has been printed, and the shirts are ready for purchase (click the image below).


This was a different approach to design for me, as I hand-drew each individual component, then scanned them onto the computer and put them all together digitally. I think it really gives the design an earthly and organic quality, which works out perfectly for Arbor Day. The IFPCsees working forests maintained in Idaho forever through responsible management of public and private forests and through an informed public that understands such management. The work of the Commission will help assure balanced and sustained timber, wildlife, recreation and scenic beauty for the welfare of the state’s citizens.” That said, I tried to incorporate different aspects of their vision into the design, and hopefully give people a good idea of what they produce without too much text to clutter it all up.


These shirts are cheap, the money goes to a great company and you’ll get to tell everyone you know that you know the designer, and he is a fantastic fella. This LINK will take you right where you need to go, and once you’re done shopping, check out the IFPC website and see what they’re all about.

Thanks, and enjoy!
