DSO – Celebrating 20 Years of the Grateful Dead Experience

March 29, 2017

I have been creating artwork for Dark Star Orchestra for several years now. It is always a pleasure to work with them on the DSO Jubilee and their Spring and Fall Tours. But when the band asked me to design the logo to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of DSO, well, I was literally blown away. You see, I cut my teeth in the t-shirt biz by hustling GD shirts on Shakedown Street in the LOT. […]

Halloween In Athens 2016 – “It Takes A Village!”

October 26, 2016

That’s right folks, “It Takes a Village!” to throw a party like Halloween in Athens! For this year’s design we wanted to showcase some of the more popular costumes of the block party. When we started to look at it, we realized it looked a lot like a popular musical group from the 70’s and 80’s, so there you have it. We thought it was better than clowns, which nobody seems to like these days. […]

June 14, 2016

The fine folks at All Good Presents asked KMS to create the poster art for the Merryland Music Festival July 9 & 10 at the Merriweather Post Pavilion. KMS expanded the look of the Merryland crab logo, giving the one-eyed crustacean some fancy pants and dancing shoes. This music festival has some great acts.

2016 Ohio Brew Week Poster Art

June 3, 2016

The Ohio Brew Week design was a fun one this year! When prompted with a sort of “history of brewing” theme, KMS went all the way back to the monks (they’ve got such a classic look). OBW 2016 was inspired by the artwork in medieval manuscripts and the process & tradition of brewing. Can’t wait to get to tasting! The 2016 Ohio Brew Week is July 15th thru July 23rd. Yes, that’s 9 days of […]

Dark Star Jubilee 2016!

KMS continues to work with Dark Star Orchestra to promote their annual music festival, The Dark Star Jubilee. We couldn’t be more excited to create the poster art for the 2016 event which is just around the corner! The idea was a caravan/wagon train to the Jubilee. Of course the whole family is there, including the dog. KMS is especially stoked for the event because we get to see 2 sets of Hot Tuna! Also […]

mi Casa su Casa

May 14, 2016

The good folks at Casa Nueva wanted a new look for their salsa jars. They wanted to promote their new ventures Casa Cantina and Casa Bodega along with their Casa Nueva Brand. The idea was to use their iconic storefront as a way of advertising all three brands. The result is an oil painting of the restaurant’s classic storefront that includes scenes of their core services: food, drinks, and entertainment. The storefront scene even includes […]

Gotta love big tractors!

GO in Style!

The wonderful folks at Hocking Athens Perry Community Action who manage the Intercity Bus Route also known as GoBus, came to KMS for some ideas for designing the look of their new buses. The original idea was to do some flames like an old hot rod, but then we thought that a “bus on fire” wouldn’t be very appealing. We settled on wings. It creates the feeling of speed AND comfort, like you’re floating to […]

Snowville Through The Seasons

May 11, 2016

Warren and Victoria Taylor of Snowville Creamery are at it again. They continue to ask me to hand paint images that they can use to advertise in the Edible Columbus magazines. I am greatly appreciative! I love to paint. I don’t get to many chances to paint for work, living in the mostly graphic design world. So when they ask me to paint I get super excited! Below is the Winter and Spring editions of […]

Space Cadet Soaps

March 6, 2015

One of our favorite clients is Space, from Space Cadet Soaps. She is truly a beautiful person. You will not find more kind, roots righteous people than Space her husband Smiles and their three boys Simon, Eli and Forest. That’s why KMS had to come up with just the right logo for Space’s business venture Space Cadet Soaps. We think this logo sums up the essence of Space. We hope you enjoy it too.
