Let's throw a few bucks at this little project and make some stickers. This flag is a play on our state's unmistakable banner (with one little addition, of course). The design is simple, vibrant, and timeless, just like the people that come from and come to the Bayou City. Stickers are 3x4.5 and UV coated to never fade.

Also available as rewards for contribution are three limited addition prints (based off work from my forthcoming Astrodome book). The pieces put the magic of the old Dome on paper, packed with strange and wonderful details, including a who's who of famous Astrodome characters. Each of these posters measures 11x17.

The final reward for contribution is a signed, limited-edition photographic print of my portrait of Shipley's Donuts. Print measures 12x18.

I was born and raised in Houston, and I wouldn't trade that for the world. College took me to Austin, and restlessness took me to the desert. Now, more school and a career have taken me San Francisco, and boy is it a long way from home. 

A few years ago I started my graphic design company, Roadrunner Thunderbird. No matter where the work drags me, my heart stays in Harris County.

I've been back in Houston for a little bit over the summer, doing some work and research for a few other projects, including that earlier mentioned book about the Astrodome. While those projects are underway, I wanted to do something that everyone could appreciate in a much shorter time, so I decided to make a simple and unmistakable design for Houstonians.

Risks and challenges

The biggest question for a project like this is where will these things be printed. No worries, I have printers that I trust for stickers, for posters, and for photographs. The quality will be exceptional!

Another worry is always that you won't raise awareness for your project to meet your goals, but I am hoping that the great people that surround me will help see this through.

But I suppose the biggest risk would be that I further alienate all my friends who live in Dallas. Sorry but not sorry.
