"Hey, let's have a yard sale!"
"Ok, I'll make a poster for it!"
This is the place for random bits of design work that come from everyday life.

What started off as building a vert ramp in the woods for my friend JJ's 40th birthday, soon became a tradition to celebrate out on the Longwood, NC compound every year. My friend, Crappie D, came up with the name, SKARTY, and the rest is pretty blurry. Skateboarding, beer, guns, fireworks, go-karts, camping, hog roast, live thrash metal, that pretty much sums it up. For the third year of SKARTY, I decided to give this event a unique identity. My pocket only allowed me to make some custom trucker hats, patches and a kick ass banner. Hopefully next year we'll have even more things for the party. Shirts, koozies, socks, bikinis?! Who knows.
"Hey, my name's Paul...I play guitar. My friend Dorian said you're pretty rad on drums. He plays bass. We should start a band."
Three practices later we wrote our first song. In between skateboarding, goofing around, and going on adventures together, we play shows. Our first show was on New Year's Eve at Harry's Fish Camp and our friends at Lunch + Recess made an awesome video of it.
When I'm not keeping that funky time, I like to make our visuals look way more serious than our actual music.
