This took me roughly 2 weeks for finish back in college around 2004.
A quote from himself on this one, Peter is a very outspoken hot dog and encourages physical activity!

This is a character I created back in college, and recently stumbled upon in a sketch book. I revamped his look slightly and decided to transfer him into Illustrator, and did this simple “poster” in photoshop. Look for many more Peter the Weiner (pronounced as the German “Viner”) adventures to come.
Designing something that you can randomly see throughout the entire state of Iowa is always a neat thing. When I was employed for a design agency in NW Iowa I was able to get the chance to design the ad campaign logo for the Secretary of Agriculture. He ended up winning, loved the logo, and continues to be the Secretary.
First attempt, but not the winner.
The Winner but not finished.
The Final Result.
and for effect, Mr. Northey and the Logo taken from “The Iowa Repulican“.
Being a part of something like the Iowa-Connection is crucial for side projects and helping out my friends, which brings me to one of my favorite types of layouts; flyers. We have many devoted rollerbladers in Iowa, Illinois, and Nebraska that are familiar faces to these sessions so making an attractive and inspiring flyer to get people excited for the get together is always a priority. These are the flyers I have made so far in chronological order from oldest to newest.

Adobe Illustrator animations are a particular favorite of mine, and I have been working on an ongoing series entitled “Blade Brain”.
S o far there is “The Origin”
The Original Concept’s final draft
which inspired “The Brain”

I have decided to split ties with the name “Mute. Studios.” and pursue something far more relevant and directly associated with myself. TDZ Media and Design is something I can work with for the rest of my life and is the only clear choice. Enjoy what is to come and hopefully you will like the content I feature and produce.
