MSU Snowboard Club Goes Underground

Posted in Artwork, Graphic Design, UAC Updates with tags , , , , , , , , on August 30, 2010 by bendey14


Finally.

For those of you who don’t know, I’m an avid shredder upon the ol’ snowboard and naturally I had to jump on MSU’s 2010 Club shirts, not just because I love snowboarding, but because I knew it would be an awesome project.

My fellow shredder and good buddy, Chad, threw the project at me a few weeks ago…shit took off like a storm. A blizzard actually.  Despite me being physically deprived of internet for almost a month, Chad and I were able to make ends meet and help this season’s MSU SBC club shirts become something to reckon with. Props to Nathan Urban for providing some reverse side graphic genius.

A HUGE shoutout to Chad, Nathan, and the entire MSU SBC family, ya’ll are too much! Good luck on an awesome year, Park City is going to shit their snowpants.

Want one? Get at me:

A UAC Update

With my first post here at Vivid Underground, I claimed I’d be keeping all you readers updated on Underground Art Concepts‘ top secret projects.  As you can see, I haven’t stayed true to my word, and I figure I should give you all the skinny before I forget.

First up:  Got my buddy’s old snowboard here that he left in my basement.  It’s been sitting there for about 5 years and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t miss it.  I’ve got a nice layer of copper spray paint, as well as a few streaks of new Krylon colors on there.  A couple weeks ago I thought it’d be a good idea to smother one end in some black enamel.  On top of that, I used the board to catch the drops of a bloody nose before a tissue was attained…(yea, a little messed up but what would art be if it didn’t have blood on it!?).  I’ve got some designs sketched out, but 75% of the time, they never end up on the final product.  Stay tuned for this one’s fate.

Second:  You know I have to give it up for the ladies… and by ladies, I mean Megan Fox.  Nah, I’m just kidding, but seriously, it is Megan Fox, but she’s not the only one …if you catch my drift.  This one has been hanging up on the drawing board for about 7 months now.  When I get bored, I’ll spend about 10 minutes on it and then get preoccupied with something else.  But fear not, she’s almost finished…and I can gaurantee you’ll be amazed once the final touches are made.  This one will be of the mixed media flavor.

Last but not least:  Gotta throw the book up there.  I know most of you have seen this already, but I should probably drop it one last time.

 At the end of December, I released a book full of “secret photography” titled Your Dreams Are Shit.  You can order your own copy here.  It’s nothing spectacular, but it’s something I’ve been working on for the past 4 years and it’s a very personal project that I felt I should finally share with the rest of the world.  Don’t let the title mislead you, by the end of the book, you’ll hopefully realize that there’s much more to life than just 4 little words, but sometimes all it takes is 4 little words to make you finally see it.  I don’t want to take up too much pixels here with an explanation of this book, but if you’d like to hear more about it…by all means, don’t hesitate to contact me.  My email is benderm6@gmail.com or my AIM screen name, jx240.
