Evolution of BAD!


It started in the bathtub when our son was about three.


With an array of colorful bath crayons and a captive audience of one, I set out to show our toddler son what a graffiti "Tag" is, while simultaneously creating an updated version of my "BAD!" moniker - which, being the initials of my name, has been with me for a very long time. 


At the time of creation, I did not know what would become of this, or when. But my intuition said it would have a purpose somewhere, on down the line. I photographed it and filed it away on some 50 MB SD card., and didn't think of it again.


Bath-time was awesome that night, back in 2008.

Fast forward to 2010.

With a version of Photoshop now in my possession (possibly a scaled down version for educators), I decided to play around with bright colors and effects to see how much I could enhance BAD!

Looking at the original art, and comparing it to my new work, it was obvious some things on the design would need to change, or parts were just missed entirely.

Like any starving artist knows, it was time to simply take what the source was providing, and work from there.

And truthfully, I actually liked what Photoshop did.

But it still, was not enough.

This art needed to jump off the page. 

Fast forward a decade.!!



New technology. New version of Photoshop.

New Smartphones with image capture, post-processing, video production, and visual effect apps. 

Now, I had a mobile production studio, literally in the palm of my hand.

No sense in waiting another decade.

Introducing the freshest update yet - BAD!
