DKNG Studios

The guys at DKNG do great work. Being music lovers here at Threadbird, we love what this print is communicating. Music is beautiful. Coupled with a great, old-timey vibe.

Zaib Ali

Check out Train Crossing on Dribbble, and don’t miss the rest of Zaib’s work. It was hard to pick just one for this week’s post. This piece has a real dreamy element, with the glare of the setting sun casting it’s shadow.

Eric Ressler

Maybe it’s because we love the West Coast, or because this Santa Cruz Design really would look great on a t-shirt. But, Eric is definitely onto something with this minimal take on Santa Cruz and the 3 natural elements of Trees, Mountains and Water.

Rise & Design: A Little Inspiration

Mornings can be tough. We get it. Some days coffee just isn’t enough to get the creativity flowing, so we’ve decided to help you out!

We’re kicking off this series of super cool designs to get the creative juices flowing with designs from some of our very own Art & Mocks team! So grab that cup of joe and check out today’s inspiration.

Josh Metts

“I’ve always been impressed by the illustrations of Ed Roth, so I wanted to do something in the same vein and a little out of my style for a friend of mine. I always start with pen and paper and bring it to digital for the coloring.”

Michael Hoss

“The process behind my skull art was fairly simple. I was in the mood to do something different and found some inspirational pieces online. I mimicked a few different styles and meshed it with my own. I’m a fan of brighter colors, so I thought it would be interesting to mix that into a seemingly dark and grungy illustration.”
