The BoC now stands for Bar on Church

The BoC used to be a popular nickname for the former Bar on Castro, but it has a new meaning now that the Bar is moving to Church! I’ve been asked to design the launch advertising campaign… including ads and logos for a number of differently-themed nights.

The Bar on Castro become the Bar on Church

Creatus Maximus

I’ve teamed up with James Carrol of Wijitworld on a website for our old friend Ken Lilly (former Palisades. The client wanted a futurist / retro animated interface and James and I worked on the concept together, then he designed and implemented the animation and I finalized all the textures / gradients etc. and assembled the site in html. Creatus Maximus has since been scaled down to just the forum. Original version hosted here.

Desktop composite of Palisades Toys Muppet Action Figures

I never did any work on the Muppet line. But I was a big fan. My connection with Palisades doing the PALz DID get me a lot of Muppet swag though. Anyway here’s a desktop pattern for you Muppet fans out there.
