Howdy, I'm Oliver.
I'm a designer, illustrator, art director, animator, schmoozer, & center fielder based out of Cleveland, Ohio. I firmly believe that a project doesn't stand a chance without a solid concept behind it.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for me. I’ve had a pretty wide range of projects. Check out some shots from them (some are in progress):


This is the beginning of a new body of work that depicts a slight sense of motion and disorientation. More to come from that in the future.


More after the jump.

This is an in-progress drawing for a poster for G1998’s Pee Wee Herman Tribute show in LA at the end of July. More details here.


This was my print for the San Francisco version of the Quentin Vs. Coen show in June. It was the companion piece to my Pulp Fiction print from the NYC version of the show, and like that print, it sold out very quickly. I may have a few extra to sell in a month or so though.

The package consists of portraits and simple vector illustrations with a restrained color palette.


This logo that I created for an Antique American Firearms dealer recently won an award in the AIGA design competition.


This was the poster and key art used in the campaign promoting the return of the 50 / 50 Show in Cleveland. The show was a huge hit in recent years, but had stopped running over the last few. This year brought the 50 / 50 show back in a big way.

Last but not least, I was fortunate enough to participate in this year’s WMCFest in June. I gave a panel discussion with my friend Pants about the ups and downs of being designer and getting started in the industry. We put some people on blast, told some good stories, gave life-changing advice, and cussed like a sailor. I also sold some posters and had some stuff on display in the gallery along with fellow KDU top guy, Brandon Minga. His stuff was awesome to see in person:

Oh, and David Gensler talked too. You might know him.

It was excellent to finally put some faces to these people who I had known of for a long time but never had the opportunity to meet.
