Hey guys, I realize I haven't been uploading much on here lately... I do apologize.
Which isn't to say I've been inactive in my projects! If you want to keep up with my creative life, I've been uploading small things to my tumblr - including photography, sketchbook pages, quick paintings, and gif experiments like this guy:
Since I don't want to be terribly redundant, I've decided to reserve this space for process updates on bigger projects. So stay tuned! There will be some fun stuff coming soon.
Here's a little something from a while back - an experimental portrait of the elfen cyborg pop goddess Claire Boucher aka GRIMES
Come get lost with me among the mega platform shoes, pigtails and weaponry that is Grimes.
Hey folks, here's something I've been working on for fun. It's a little loose, but I enjoyed figuring things out!
Shout out goes to the mighty Dieter Miller for some solid feedback!
This piece was one of those moments of instant inspiration type-deals, so I didn't execute this in an exactly linear way. Hope you guys dig it anyway!

I'm back from outer dimensional journeying and I brought back some goodies!

You might have been able to guess from the final design that this is a liquor label project.
The instructor challenged us to create a liquor label that used typography and a minimal color palette.
Being the punny person that I am, I decided to do some word play with the other name for liquor - and came up with something maybe slightly offensive.
I mean, who hasn't found some strength at the bottom of a bottle? Ha... ha....
At least it looks good, right?
There's a lesson to be learned here - commit to an ideation before going into illustrator or else you might find yourself wasting a day or two aimlessly combining shapes and colors. :|
In the end, my labels were printed out and adhered to a bottle making this design REAL and
I CAN HOLD IT IN MY HANDS!!!!!
This is some exciting business.
Hey guys, it's been a while.
I've got an exciting new piece to share with you -
it's a portrait of Swedish group Little Dragon!
These cool cats:
After a sketching out ideas for a bit, I came up with one that I felt could convey a sense of their music along with their likenesses.
So I did a sketch in photoshop.
And then I decided to ink the leaves by hand because people don't lose their minds by doing that ever, right?
Finally, through the magic of photoshop...
I ended up with something I like.
What do you guys think?
