These are some examples of the graphic work I’ve been creating for my friends on the Irie Army Discord server. All the artwork is my own creation with some using clipart or Photos as reference materials only.
The Irie Army is a group of like minded individuals who follow and cultivate Irie Genetics, Grow From Your Heart Podcast, and its Owner Rasta Jeff on Discord. These initial images were done for banners and icons.
The Rasta Bot icon is still a work in progress. The Bot is our server AI intelligence that directs new members to our rules page and will answer certain questions about the site. Initially I thought of creating a simple robot, but sometimes things get over complicated and icons turn into art, so some of these will never be used for that reason, I’ve included some of them here. The icon we’re currently using, is in Rasta Jeffs likeness.
Graybeard is based on corpse paint for black metal bands. I did’t know much about this so Graybeard educated me and gave me lots of reference material to go by. The avatar went through many changes and continues to evolve throughout time. I really liked playing with just the black and white aspect and the interplay with multiple faces within faces.
Billy wanted a simple Alaska type theme and it went through a few iterations before settling on the cannabis leaf over the paw print
Mota’ s icon is based on his military service to his country, his online handle “Mota 4U”, and his love for growing and using cannabis for his medication.
Irie’s icon is based on his love of Italian food, tomatoes and cannabis. There were only a couple of iterations before settling on the simple pizza pie.
Jordan wanted a purple sleeping bear smoking a blunt, so I found an image of this bear and I redrew it to fit on top of a joint rather then the bear smoking. It seemed to work so the background was played with a bit.
Justin wanted something purple using his online handle “UhhJustin” and a cannabis leaf or leaves.
Sam’s icon was a lot of fun to play with because of the multiple items he wanted to try to incorporate. He wanted an image of his specific barn; which he sent me a photo of a painting of the barn, cannabis, mushrooms, a “U” shaped driveway, the surrounding hills, his dog or old icon and the chemical symbols for THC and psilocybin. This didn’t happen all at once, this icon actually derived from another project for Lollipop Farm (See Next). The following are images through multiple design stages. Sam settled on the last icon for now as This is still a work in progress.
This icon was never used for Lollipop farm but was used for the inspiration of SamHeadz icon. This was intended to be a simple design for the farm, but was scrapped for various reasons. Of course I save all my work because you never know when it might come in handy
This icon was fairly self explanatory and was a lot of fun to create. I usually don’t draw characters because I’m more of a technical artist but I thought I’d give it a try. I did use some reference material for this image but the entire image was drawn by my hand using a mouse with Photoshop. I actually used a screen shot of hobbit, which was pretty grainy, to get the icon to look similar to his likeness. I plan on updating this icon frequently because Hobbit would like some holiday inspired work.
Terp Goonie Farms
The folks at Terp Goonie Farms wanted a icon inspired by the movie “The Goonies” So I tried to adhere to the color and look of the movie graphics and played with the backgrounds.
Purple $kunk & Terp Goonie Farms
Purple Skunk wanted a purple skunk obviously, hahaha but also wanted the skunk to be wearing a gas mask. After doing some quick research I could find a few good examples online but chose to design my own original skunk for this graphic.
Petro wanted a logo based on petrol or gas products incorporated with cannabis. Once the base design was established I just played with the background
Grass Testers logo was based on a picture I saw of the Hermit Card in a Tarot card deck and thought it looked just like him, So I thought it would be a good fit. The Other Two were just early ideas.
Frosty was pretty specific on what he wanted which makes it pretty easy to get it right on the first draft. He wanted a box of 20 nuggets as buds and showing frost of sorts.
Made While Medicated / Riven Waters
For my Logo I wanted to used the Made While Medicated words or letters incorporated with cannabis as part of my logo. This will continue to be a work in progress.
