Schlafly Batch No. 40004

Batch No. 40004

Over the last few months I had the chance to watch a beer come to life. I was invited to participate in Schlafly’s annual Artist Series release where their brewers work with a local artist to develop, name, and package a beer from scratch. I collaborated with Schlafly’s design and brand team to create the name, concept, label, and additional swag for a brand new (delicious) beer.

I’ve posted a full design process walk-through Here.

City Museum

Underground City

Caves have been a big, if often overlooked part of the evolution of the city. From Native American legends dating back to pre-colonial times to the boom of brewing in the 19th century and the speakeasies and gambling rings that popped up during prohibition, St. Louisans have been making use of this second “underground city” as long as we’ve been here.

When the City Museum approached me about working on a mural for a new exhibit space it seemed like a perfect opportunity to dig into this weird and complicated history and try put my own spin on it.

A lot of the inspiration and info for this mural came from Hubert and Charlotte Rother’s excellent early 1960’s exploration journal “Lost Caves of St. Louis”

Cut-ups

The world’s great stadiums at your fingertips. Beware papercuts!

I pitched Howler Magazine on designing flat templates of the world’s famous soccer stadiums that could be printed on a single magazine page, cut out and folded into shape by (patient) readers. Our first version was The Bernabéu, to accompany a cover story on the history of Real Madrid. After some great feedback it became a recurring feature.

Later Major League Soccer asked me to create some more to help promote big rivalry matches.

Photo help from my dad!

Tips for building:

Use a X-acto or similar craft knife to cut out pieces. Using heavier paper will make the stadium easier to build and more solid. Card stock is ideal. Be sure not to cut directly on a desk or table. Use a piece of cardboard or the back of a magazine to make sure you don’t damage your tabletop. You don’t need any tape to construct the stadium, but if you plan to keep it around on your desk for a while, a couple pieces on the insides of corners will make sure it doesn’t fall apart too easily. May the odds be ever in your favor.
