awre wool/flannel shirt

Check out the a new fun project I worked on a few weeks ago. 





awre wallets


check out the new wallets. will be posted on the online shop soon












awre pillows

Awre one of a kind new pillows, I recently collaborated with my girlfriend on this project. 
we picked up some fabric from a local arts and crafts store, some different color fabrics and
created a series of different one of a kind pillows. I utilized some of the designs I had 
and printed them on the fabric in a random manner, then my girlfriend helped me with the 
sewing and stuffing them.

these pillows are perfect for the everyday use.  

over all I'm pretty happy with the quality and the uniqueness of every single pillow, but because of the 
amount of work it took to create it will only be this limited run of 15 different pillows all with different
color fabric combinations. here are some photos of them.

houston be aware basic tee design

Houston Needs New Blood.
design meets city living in a simple but elaborated way. 2014 seems to be a pretty damn productive year,
with a new way of work and inspiration. here are two of the latest designs
Awre new Houston shirt - it's a simple design that illustrates a need for new designers in Houston. Awre is about making people aware about things that surround them and make people want to pursue what they want to do; either art, music, writing, or simply just having something going on for them. In that process i want people to put the name of the city up and represent where they're from. Put Houston up, one of the greatest cities in U.S.

design is printed on a Black/white 3/4 sleeve American Apparel shirt. pretty different style that gives the design a pretty unique look. light blue ink is pretty intense color which overpowers the white sleeves.

 The second design this month is the woodcut inspired design, it features Awre elephant logo.
the different imagery used to complete the design such as the eye and the stamp are a major part of the
design which was inspired by the woodcut look.
you can find these two different designs in three different styles Awre shop on etsy. Awre is a company that makes limited amounts of shirts, only about 10 per color or variation. use the best soft quality American Apparel shirts. https://www.etsy.com/shop/AWRE

right yeah, well I'm fortunate enough to know people who are pretty damn
good at what they do, and who have pushed me and showed me the way.

since I started it. feels good to get some recognition for something I really enjoy doing.
I was recently featured on Houston maker space blog, which is an awesome platform for
