Hi. I’m Jovino

I am a multidisciplinary artist focusing on clothing design, music, graphic design, and luminous sculpture.

Sculpture

I work primarily with reclaimed, recycled, and repurposed materials. My current area of focus is on Lumia — how light affects emotions and space.

Pen and Ink Illustration

Tattoos

Bassist

I am a professional musician with over 30 years of experience. I have worked with several clients both in the studio and on the stage.

Previous Projects

 

Graphic Artist

I began my design career as a technical illustrator for Boeing Aircraft. Graphic art was a natural for me because of my steady hand.

My roots in graphic art are founded in the days of vellum and pasteboards. I have worked with a wide variety of clients ranging from high fashion, to lowbrow artists. My current area of focus is logos and typography.

Wedding gown and tuxedo

I designed and created the clothes for my wedding. My wife is wearing a princess seam strapless gown featuring a meandering pink and purple sequin mesh over fuchsia silk dupioni. My tuxedo features teal and silver denim with a matching silk dupioni liner.

Black strapless sundress

The dress is made with a falling daisy print fabric. The hem is cut along the flowers for a more natural appearance. The back has a contrasting yellow exposed zipper.

Bolt Shirt

The body is white with black mesh stripes. The bolt design is pink, purple, and black non-shedding glitter.

Biking Knickers

These jeans were designed with style, comfort and safety in mind. The capri-length allows free movement and the adjustable elastic hem keeps the legs at the perfect comfort level. Reflective trim makes these trousers highly visible at night.

Seatbelt Corset

This project was inspired by the Mad Max series of films. I had been making recycled seatbelt belts for a while, and I was very familiar with the medium. The corset is adjustable from small to XL using a system of side lacing and my secret webbing adjustment system found on my line of belts.

Buckle Up!

Yip Yips

Another fun project! These costumes were designed for an outer-space themed convention. They are crafted using cuddle plush, semi sheer black polyester, large pipe cleaners, pipe insulation, styrofoam balls, and a sponge on a stick. The costumes also include pants, belts of tentacles and shoes.

Skunk Jammies

This suit was made with polar fleece and fake fur. It has a double-ended zipper opening which goes from the neck to the base of the tail. The hem uses adjustable elastic for a perfect fit.

I have been making animal pajamas since 2003. I founded a business around these garments and I still make them on a commission basis.

Small Dog Service Vest Prototype

I was commissioned to design a service dog vest for tiny dogs. The project never got off the ground, but I made a successful prototype based around the requirements.

Romibo

Romibo is an interactive robot used to assist special needs children to interact with the world. The requirement for this project was to create a removable "skin" which cannot be tugged off by the children, but can also be easily removed for laundering. The attachment system is comprised of corded elastic and non-slip pajama footie fabric. The body is made with Shannon Fabrics fake fur and it has an elastic enhanced face opening and an elastic waist. The robot is motorized, so the base had to be clean to prevent fabric from getting caught in the wheels.

Quantum Martial Arts banner

This banner was made using a combination of quilting and embroidery. I used Robert Kaufman woven cotton which allowed me to make an exact match of the colors. The black lines were created using a combination of flat-lock and satin stitching. I made two of these banners, which are currently installed inside the Quantum Martial Arts dojo.

Children's Wear

I was approached by a large-brand children's wear company to design a line of coats and vests. We were able to create custom made fake fur, making this project really fun to do.

Spacepunk

Spacepunk is my current clothing company. Here I showcase my original Spacecoats, punk rock vests, and Bunnywarez (my previous clothing company).

Every one of my Spacecoats are unique. Each one is an individual work of art, inspired by the deep reaches of space, and punk rock. Each garment is a showcase of my exceptional fake fur piecing and sewing abilities.

 

Religious Headwear

I've been making hats since Y2K. The first hat, crafted from scrap fabric, was an instant hit.

Every hat is unique. Each hat is an individual work of art.
