Copper worth its weight

This is an older project that I wanted to breath new life into because I always liked it but it did not fit into any solid catagory.
I was contracted by Solid Form Fabrication to hand engrave a unique still cap for Ransom Spirits that will be used on a still to make spirits.
Ransom Spirits was started by Tad Seestedt in 1997 with a small life savings and a fistful of credit cards. The name was chosen to represent the debt incurred to start the business.”.. They wanted it to be copper, 10″ diameter and hand engraved. This was a super unique request but who was I to let them down. I broke out my trusty rotary Dremel too with the diamond tip and went to work.

In the life of Mark J Design

We needed to render them in a photorealistic way. I turned to my good friend Phil over at Autodesk. He turned me onto a software called Fusion360. I learned what I needed in less than a month and was turning out photorealistic renderings daily. Below are some of the latest.

Jolly Roger Resturants Score big in Boise Idaho

Rob Jackson, owner of the Jolly Roger resturant chain needed to brand his dragster. Me being a fan of the sport, and him being the man of the sport worked up a skull and wrench graphic to fit the persona of his chain and represent his drag team.
