The 1958 Central Catholic Centripetal

Had nothing better to do but thought to share pages of my mother's yearbook from a Catholic high school she attended 55 years ago.  I especially love the pre-Photoshop era of photo-manipulation going on here, you can't get that unless you know adequate brushwork, rubber cement and X-acto craftsmanship.  The photo of a basketball game alone shaped my view of what I thought high school sports was like before going to high school.

Designs for a Pool Hall

Been a while, and when I was at wit's end, this came to my gaze.

I actually helped this little outfit out last year in providing some drawings I scribbled for possible logos or T-shirt concepts that were submitted to the owners.  Needless to say I was paid a pittance for the whole matter, never pursued any further monetary fees for my rough-drafted originals, and nothing more really.  Here's some sketches I did managed to scan or snapped before either sending it to them as well as some scribbles I sent to a friend recently.

Here's a hoodie and a Tee with finished versions of my designs as rendered by someone else (since I did my work by hand and not with a computer)....

Too bad I didn't have the cash for these right now.  Still it's nice something of mine is shared with the community despite not having my named attached to said work.
