As I've started putting together logos for folks, I've taken a real liking to the process of trying to understand the vibe of the company or mission, and then working to create that vibe through a small piece of art.

When a client replies to say they love the final design, it's an all-timer of a feeling to know that I got to be a part of building their brand!

This logo came out of a couple hours of afternoon doodling one day...but I do love me a good beer logo! ๐Ÿป

Excited to share a final logo design for Empowered to Perform, 's new cycling coaching company!

I've been working with Paige as my cycling coach since the beginning of this year, and when she made the move to create her own LLC, I was fired UP to be asked to create the logo.๐Ÿ”ฅ

Getting creative and thinking about bike stuff...two of my favorite things, coming together. ๐Ÿ–ผ๐Ÿšต

Thanks for the opportunity, Paige!๐Ÿค™


Last month, I was asked to illustrate a favorite landscape as a gift for someone who was moving away from the area at the end of July.

I received a series of photos of the area and was told that the most important element of the illustration should be the sunset. ๐ŸŒ…

So, off to work I went, and here is the result! ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ–ผ

Thank you, Sara, for the opportunity to create a sentimental goodbye gift for a friend! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Highlighting another logo design from recent beer label samples...introducing, Downhill Brewing Co.!

I've come to enjoy the process of creating something from scratch...thinking up a vibe I want a logo to reflect, and then working toward accurately reflecting that vibe in a design.

Swipe to see the beer label illustration upon which this logo lives! โžก๏ธ

I've been on a bit of a kick over here...

I pulled this one from a recent sample I illustrated, and wanted to highlight it on its own! ๐Ÿป

In addition to illustrating the new logo, Kate asked if I'd draft up a watermark she could use on her photographs.

After a couple drafts, we landed on this water droplet design...a dark one for light photos, and a light blue one for dark photos.

Excited to see this on Kate's brilliant photography work in the future! ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿ™

Her Majesty, indeed! ๐Ÿ‘‘

When Joel & Jim reached out to ask if I'd illustrate their pup, Mouse, perched upon their regal-looking chair and add a tiara on her head, it was an opportunity I COULDN'T pass up! ๐Ÿคฃ

An 11" x 14" canvas print is en route to Joel & Jim, which I'm SURE will become a conversation piece in whatever room they decide to hang it up in. ๐Ÿ–ผ

Pleasure working with you two on this, Joel & Jim! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Excited to share a new iteration of a logo...this one for a new location in Cranston, Rhode Island!

Carlos of
asked if I could draw up a logo that was similar in concept to the logos I did a little while ago, but reflect the vibe of Rhode Island.

After a couple of iterations, we landed on this design with two colorways - does anybody out there have a preference??

Such a pleasure working with you on this, Carlos! Best of luck with the new business and getting this logo on some sweet merch! ๐Ÿค™

A while back, my dear friend asked if I'd be his best man. Easy Yes.

A little while later (but also a while back!) he asked if I'd be up for putting together a logo of sorts that he and his now-wife (!!) could use on pint glasses and koozies for their wedding day. A second easy yes!

The A+ wedding venue was at , a picturesque old-style barn in southwest Mass - I aimed to capture that old-timey charm in the design!๐Ÿพ

While I do graphic illustration commissions of all kinds, I get particularly excited when a fellow cyclist asks for something bike-related...

So when asked if I could do an illustration as a gift for , it was an easy yes!

Ally provided the initial photo (swipe to the end!), and asked if I could simplify it, enhance the sunset, and make sure that Lex's bike really popped. What do we think? I think...success!! ๐Ÿšฒ๐Ÿ•

Thanks for the opportunity to get creative, !



Excited to have Sarah at on board as a retailer of my greeting cards for the second year in a row! ๐Ÿ™Œ

If you find yourself perusing the coast of Maine this summer and passing through Round Pond, be sure to pop into the store for some ice cream, and a Designs by Conor card!

Commissioned illustration for photo contest winners Dave, Kathy, and pup Snoopy!

Pulling inspiration primarily from a black and white photo for the first time was a fun twist (swipe for the contest-winning photo!).

Dave and Kathy kindly provided some color photos of their boat and pup so I could ensure the personalized touch was there ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Excited to provide Dave and Kathy with a physical print for their home!! ๐Ÿ–ผ

When my world traveling, reptile-loving friend asked if I would graphically illustrate a snake of my choosing from his photo collection, I jumped at the chance!

Swipe to see the original photo that Ryan took of this particular species of Pit Viper, found only on Komodo Island in Indonesia.

For many, Springtime means bike time...and what better way to end an early bike season session than with a Moutain Ale from Downhill Brewing Co.?๐Ÿ—ป๐Ÿšต

Another adventure of mine into the world of beer label making! Unfortunately, not a real beer that any of us can enjoy just yet. All artwork, logos, and names are my own creation!๐Ÿป

Land Ho! With summer right around the corner, we're all craving a new, tasty Session IPA, and Red Boat Brewery has come through for the people.

As you prep the boat for the first cruise of the season, don't forget your 6pack of Land Ho!๐Ÿ

...Nope. Not real. Another exploratory adventure into the world of logo and label design! All artwork and names are my own creation...but sure sounds delicious, doesn't it?? ๐Ÿป

Courtesy of Acadia Aleworks, I'm excited to introduce you to Headlight - the tastiest American Amber Ale on the market! ๐Ÿป

Winter may be wrapping up, but a delicious Headlight Ale will be ready for you when Spring decides to revert back into Winter for a hot sec.

No...none of this is real. I made it all up - names, illustrations, and logos are my own design! Fun to play pretend though, am I right??


Beer labels, anyone? ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿป

After excitedly experimenting with some craft beer label templates, I hooked up with to have samples printed off!

Had to zip down to the grocery store to find some 16oz cans to properly relabel ๐Ÿค™

My friends at just wrapped up their second annual photo contest, and I partnered up with them to provide the winner with an illustration of their winning photo.

Always a pleasure to work with ...excited to have a 13x19 print sent off to Nancy (and her dog!), the photo contest winner!

I'm quite lucky to find myself living in a place where I can ride my bike from sea level up to 10,000'. ๐Ÿšตโ€โ™‚๏ธ

As you approach the summit of Haleakala volcano, the terrain changes entirely. The browns and grays of dirt and rocks slowly fade away, until only the ink-black lava rock remains, speckled with the occasional grassy specimen that must be fighting to survive in the otherwise barren landscape.๐ŸŒฑ

It's like nowhere else I've been on Earth, and is one of my favorite places to visit on Maui! ๐ŸŒŽ

The full illustration inspired the simpler 'sticker' version from a previous post. ๐Ÿ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Big thanks to for taking the photo that inspired me to pull this one together!

Swipe to take a peek at said photo.๐Ÿ“ธ


Excited to have had the opportunity to use my artwork to create a magazine ad for that was featured in a recent edition of magazine! ๐Ÿ‘€


Beginnings of a sticker? ๐Ÿ‘€

Experimenting with keeping things simple the other day! ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™‚๏ธ


As I finished up my first cycling illustration of Maui - now hanging up in the bike shop - the owners of the shop suggested that I create something that highlights the bike tour down the volcano that we operate daily. So, I did!

Using a series of different photos, I worked to capture the feeling of awe one has while prepping to coast downhill from our staging area at 6,500'. โ›ฐ

The epic switchbacking roads seemingly never end, the West Maui Mountains and the island of Lanai appear small in the distance, and the feeling that you're standing on an oasis in the middle of the largest ocean in the world becomes more real than ever.๐Ÿ

This too will soon be hanging up in the shop....and maybe some smaller size prints to sell, to boot! ๐Ÿค™

My friends over at came to me asking for a new spin on their Blue Ox logo for some upcoming merchandise...

Do the people have a colorway preference?

I think I'm partial to the blue background! ๐Ÿช“๐Ÿช“

Custom illustration alertโ€ผ๏ธ came to me with an idea - could I insert some special doggos into a favorite lookout spot on the ocean? Challenge accepted! Swipe to see the full illustration, as well as the individual photos that Virginia sent along to help guide me.

I enjoy being challenged with outside-the-box thinking like this project - no better way to keep me on my toes!

Thanks for the project, Virginia!


Feeling fired up that my artwork made it onto the new signage out front of new home in Brunswick, ! ๐Ÿ–ผ๐Ÿ›ฅ
