The Kansan Basketball posters series are designed to intimidate the opposing team during a University of Kansas home basketball game, by portraying the team’s mascot in a humorous light. Students hold the posters above their heads and proceed to tear the poster into confetti to throw in the air. This is one of The University Kansas’ most valued basketball traditions.

Cork and Barrel Advertisements
At The University Daily Kansan Newspaper I was asked to design an advertisement for a local liquor store in Lawrence, Kansas called Cork and Barrel. The advertisement was scheduled to run in the Kansan's Special Section called "The Myths and Tales of Lawrence."

Later that year I was also asked to create another illustration for Cork and Barrel in the Kansan's "Finals Guide" Special Section, which is featured here.
