Mr. Jiffy

Here are two ideas for the Band "Jiffy" Darrel asked for something with a Mexican flavor and a skull. He also liked the connection with the peanut butter...why? Dunno, but I tried.

Remember and Prepare

I've been asked to be the chairman for a big commemoration of 9/11 here in Modesto. Most things will have to be delegated out, but I gave myself the job of making a poster for the event. The text is subject to change (it still needs editing by the committee) but hopefully the changes won't be major. I saw a similar poster online and modeled mine after it. I've made plenty of changes but I can't take all the credit.

New Band Poster

I'm a bit slow with this poster but I like the way it turned out. Fun, whimsical, musical, I think.
Let me know what else needs to be added.

Posters for Del Mar College

More blue texture from Mr. Hester, plus some vector images (perfect for manipulation because they stay crisp and clean when you size up) from They are royalty free, if you mention where you got them!

The New People and Composition Symposium

I'm excited about all the blues that are happening in this and the next poster. I have to give credit where credit is due. I found a site with some royalty free grunge textures created by Darren Hester. I've manipulated one of his, together with some of my own images to create the background.

Go to to find some of your own.

A Night of Symphonies

Try to guess what texture I used in the background. Here's a hint: it's something you use at least once a week. Generally, I like these posters in a vertical format, but I couldn't resist a landscape layout since the title of the poster is A "Night" of Symphonies. I wanted to promote the physical earthiness (is that a word?) of the whole thing, hence the landscape view.
