Should I be flattered or unsurprised that Miley Cyrus just tweeted about Baconlube and showed my package?miley

Tweet me a Coffee, I’ll draw you an Avatar!

6 Nov

I love doing stuff in trade. And you can’t beat this one (neither can I, for that matter!)

Simply go Tweet Me A Coffee, enter my Twitter address (robchristianson) and I’ll draw you a cartoon avatar based on your Twitter picture. Or send me a photo. Either way, you get a quick sketch to use for Twitter, Facebook whatever for only $5!

The catch: No revisions. It’s already a quick job, so I don’t wanna lose any more hours than possible! =) But for $5, I’m hoping you’ll smile.

Here’s a quick sample of one I’ve done for myself, so you can get an idea of what to expect…

Can you draw in Church?

13 Oct

My pastor saw my notes the other night… “hmm those are some really interesting notes, Rob!”

I’m still new at the church so I’m still getting to know his personality, but I think he understands… Just because I draw in church, doesn’t mean I’m not listening. In fact, I’ve discovered that “doodling” engages my right side of the brain that I use more, rather than forcing attention away to struggle writing things down and still tracking along with the sermon. That’s like that old trick of rubbing your belly and patting your head. Some of us are made to do it, and some of us aren’t. It’s not wrong it’s just different.

And as a creative person I think reflecting Gods creativity on some small scale “draws” (pardon the pun) me into worship moreso than trying to scribble out notes so fast that I won’t be able to read them afterwards.

What do you guys think? Is it okay to draw in church?

A new coat of paint…

11 Oct

If you stop by my blog now and then, you’ve probably noticed that I change my theme like a teenage girl changes outfits. This is why I could never get a tattoo.  Heck, I can’t even keep the wallpaper on my computer the same for 2 weeks.

Anyways, I’ve changed up my theme yet again. I’m cheap, so I stick with the free themes available… but I’m also picky. A lethal combination when it comes to self-promotion. ;)  Anyways, I hope you enjoy the new look, and how easy it is to get to the blog entries again.

And now, in celebration of National Talk Like a CB-Operator, which I have declared today to be, “Hammer down! C’mon back.”

Being a freelance art director… (OR “How I bring home the bacon… Literally)

17 Sep

Several years ago, I ran across an ad on Craigslist looking for a character illustration. After answering the ad and relentlessly perusing the company that posted the ad via Twitter, Email and Facebook, I convinced them to give me a shot. That job would be the beginning of something special. Like bacon.

J&D’s Foods, a small food company in South Seattle had two products that the public was going wild over… Bacon Salt, and Baconnaise. They were about to launch a third product, “Bacon Pop”, the worlds first microwave popcorn flavored like Bacon, and I was tasked with coming up with the character.

After round upon round of crazy characters, from Mickey Mouse-inspired cartoons to a freakish likeness of Kevin Bacon as a piece of meat, “Mr Bacon” was born…

What happened next was a dream come true. J&Ds asked me if I’d be willing to take on the packaging design as well. I leapt at the chance like a hot piece of popcorn, pardon the pun…

And so began a long relationship as the illustrator, designer and art director for my best client ever. Take a look at some of the crazy work I’ve been blessed to work on as I literally “bring home the bacon”!

Bacon Sunscreen IRL

16 Aug

Here is my Bacon Sunscreen design in its natural habitat…. Did you ever wonder what brought on the Sharknado? Totally the scent of bacon covered humans grilling in the sun ;)

Bacon Salt – Out with the old…

16 Aug

Granted this is one of the uglier color schemes of the new line of Bacon Salt labels I did, but here you see my new design on the left, and the previous design on the right.

Let me know your thoughts. Design critiques welcome.
