So in 2015 I created the illustrations and graphic design for a large project for the Community Creative Center’s “A Time For Art” summer art camp. It was a very fun project where it was themed around art from around the world and thought time. We went with a travel sticker theme and the images below are the result. This was one of my all time favorite projects to work on. It was a very graphic style with very fresh colors.
The Community Creative Center is a really great place over in Fayetteville, AR where people can learn all kinds of art media from local, professional artists! “CCC is a real asset for the community and I am glad to have them and to design for them” – JD
Holiday Bazaar, Holiday Market and Gift Certificates, here is everything we have created for them so far:
Bear with us folks!
We just completed designs for the Community Creative Center’s Gift Certificates. The idea of using a bear and the bearer pun were not our idea but we wish it had been! The designs are ours however and… well just check them out:
So this holiday season, give them a lasting gift rather than one that they will take back or possibly regift. If you want more information on gift certificates from Community Creative Center, head over to their website: CommunityCreativeCenter.org
Some great new specialty cards and a first!
I recently did some new design work for Ash&Ember a great and unusual shop selling the best in pipes, and blended tobaccos, cigars and a large assortment of collectible memorabilia and even some clothing items! I’d call it a curiosity shop for sure and a worthy stop if you are visiting North West Arkansas!
As for the cards, they are a Loyalty Card and a special club members’ card featuring design and illustration by JD Ray. As for the first there is a silkscreened teeshirt design and illustration by JD and a first for Stingray Grafik Wurks! The shirt is available in several colors and sizes. Only club members get the exclusive shirt with the club name, Society of Strange-Fellows, on the back.
Without further ado, here are the designs. (by the way these items are in print and ready for you to acquire from Ash&Ember!)
Community Creative Center’s 7th Annual Holiday Bazaar…
First off, Fayetteville AR and the surrounding area is fortunate to have the Community Creative Center. It is a great place for children and adults to experience art in a creative studio environment. I, for one, never had access to a place like this where I grew up and many people don’t. So if you live in the Fayetteville AR area you need to yourself over there and enroll in some classes or at the very least, say hey and buy some art!
Anyway, I had the privilege to design the banner, signage and other items for their 7th Annual Holiday Bazaar which features art for sale by local artists. If you are in the North West Arkansas area Dec 6 stop in and support our area artists and get some gifts with a little more meaning this year!
Check out all the nice items we designed:
It has been such a great experience working for the CCC on this project. Thanks to Barb and Joy!

This is something that we are quite good at but have done little of as Stingray Grafik Wurks but more so under our own names. Aimee’s work can be found at her main site: Aimee Ray.com
This gallery features work by JDRay and will be updated from time to time:
This is the future site of a great new Stingray Grafik Wurks site. The comic book art studio of JDRay, who has been a comic book creator since 1993, and also that of Aimee Ray who helps me immensely! You may have seen our work in Sonic the Hedgehog titles over the years. Also if you are into etsy, or embroidery, you have seen Aimee’s books and art works! I also did some work in Marvel’s “What If?” one-shot series from 2011.
We are currently working on coloring for a book from Kingstone Productions and our own Grafik Novel™ Keep an eye or two on this website for more as I work on blogging and creating this website!
