Hi. I’m Jovino.

I’m a multidisciplinary artist focusing on clothing design, music, graphic design, and sculpture.

I’m a clothing designer with twenty years of professional experience.

I began my career in 2000 making costumes and hats for friends and acquaintances. Riding on my increasing popularity, I launched my first brand Bunnywarez in 2005.

Today I work as a sewn product contractor and consultant. I get most of my work from word of mouth and Craigslist. I have many long-term and repeat customers who I enjoy continuing to work with.

My services encompass all aspects of the clothing design business. I'm able to assist with design and development, pattern making and grading, sample sewing and small run production. I can also manage larger production runs using local manufacturing resources.

I serve as a mentor to new designers. I enjoying helping others build their own brands. I openly share my process and resources. I believe that everyone deserves to succeed.

My studio is located in the heart of Oakland, CA and is easily accessible by freeway and public transportation. I am available by appointment including early morning and late night.

I also have industrial design experience, including blueprint reading, technical illustration, and 3D modeling. If you need sewn product invention and prototypes, I can help you out.

What can I do for you?

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.


Jovino is a talented, cheerful, and professional artist to work with. He created two custom wall flags 3'x5' with an embroidered geometric color block logo at 2' diameter for our martial arts dojo. Not only were the final products of excellent quality and exactly what we were looking for, Jovino was great to work with. He was responsive, reliable, a fast worker, had great attention to detail, did several iterations of color choices to make sure we were happy with the materials, struck the right balance between suggesting ideas and listening to our requests, and the workmanship was top quality. Also a very cool guy to know! We'd definitely work with him again, and recommend his textile artistry skills. Great to work with a local independent artist as well!

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 my other brands Bunnywarez and Religious Headwear.

Inspired by the deep reaches of space, glam, and, fake fur, and punk rock. Each garment is a showcase of my exceptional sewing abilities. Each coat tells a story.

Religious Headwear

I've been making hats since 2000. My first hat was crafted from cast off scrap of fake fur. It was a simple, hand-sewn design. The unique shape of this hat complimented so many faces that I started selling them at craft fairs. I also designed a line of hats for my brand Bunnywarez.

Today I am running Religious Headwear. Handmade hats for futurists and visionaries. Every hat is unique. Each hat is a work of art. Wear your Religious Headwear every day.

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.
