Blog Retirement

Well, it's time to say goodbye to the "Who Is Stanton Holmes?" Blog, as I have officially begun work on the new blog using the good ol' WordPress.

You can get to my new blog (which will be much better) here.

Hard Bodies

Team Hardbodies finished the L.A. Marathon in 4 hours, 18 minutes or so (that was Rich's time, anyhow) sporting my dude that I made for them. Excellent work gents. Here's some shots from the after party at Cabo Cantina.

IF: Parade

Diamonds are Forever

Something for the kids. It's big.. Either it will evolve or it will stay. Ideas for a show are building...

The Chimp...

In an effort to help get some sponsorship, here's the back of Rich's running jersey.. Well, at least the proposed back. :)

Hard Bodies

My buddy Rich is training some folks for a marathon and he wanted to do a running shirt for the team. They're called "Hard Bodies". Here's what happened.

Ted, Skully, and Skellie

I had a blast coming up with this little illustration here. I felt like the concept, "The Real World Can Be A Scary Place", lent itself to a little drawing.. Here it is!

Bus Stop

Sometimes the bus just doesn't come. Even when your lunch is packed.

10 Minute Challenge

Not really a challenge to anyone else but myself. I was sitting here pounding through a hefty Jack & Coke, about to go to bed when I felt somewhat unsatisfied. All I did tonight was a bunch of business, nothing creative, so I decided I'd give myself 10 minutes to throw something down... huh.

My own little 10 minute challenge. This is what happened.

And yes. I was honest about the 10 minutes. (can't you tell?)

I've been getting some work done tonight and I've been craving a pint. Didn't really feel much like getting out of my pj's (which I put on immediately after I got home), so I really didn't think it would happen..

So, I started working on a little illustration.. about a pint. Well, lo and behold, I get a call from my good friend, Ms. Framke looking to go grab a drink.

Excellent. Illustration stops and ends. Here it is.

Bach You Like A Hurricane

I'm on the advisory board for a choral group in Long Beach called the Long Beach Camerata Singers and occasionally I do design work for them. I'm posing this pre-client approval, but I think it'll be ok. I wonder what they'll think.. Huh. I dig it, so there.

Something Random

Got a bunch of work done tonight, so I figured I owed it to myself to do SOMETHING.. Lines, lines, and more lines. And this is the result.. hah! :)

Rally For One T-Shirt

The boys at Rally For One had me do another T for them and this is what they'll be printing..

Inspire Me Thursday

Stephanie inspired me today by telling me about a little website called Inspire Me Thursday. The theme was breakfast and this is what came to mind. Enjoy.

Traveling from city to the prarie land...

Been working a lot with the Young Americans lately. Growing into a brand a look can be fun.. challenging. Eh. So, since I'm hot on the heels of a post yesterday, I figured why not keep the momentum going. It'll make Curtis and Steph nervous. :)

So, the YA's go out on tours during the year and they need a poster for the tour cast to send to schools before they get there.. Without no further ado, here's my first draft.

Latest Work

Alright, alright.. So I'm well aware that I suck at updating the blog.. I'm going to work harder to do it. I have the technology. I can rebuild it.

So, let's start with this. Just updated the website with two little pieces that I recently did.

The first is the CD sleeve that I did for my friends in Robots & Empires. A little self-titled diddy. Hope you enjoy it.

The next was a good one. The boys in Rally For One approached me after I did a t-shirt for them and told me they needed a graphic for their single that would be offered on iTunes, called "Bob Ya Head". They said "pigeon". This is the result.
