Signing a new set of unique prints in collaboration with my friends at 1xRUN (past prints 'Infinity Knot Theory' and '2012'). We really raised the bar this time round. 'Vertigo' was printed on rigid sheet aluminum with 3 grey ink colors and plenty of metal shining through the design.
They turned out super. My favorite screen-printed wall hanging piece yet. Stay tuned for full artwork photos, video, and the fun story of why this one is called 'Vertigo'. Dropping later in March. Sign up for 1xRUN Newsletter to ensure you get one before they sell out.
New album packaging project for Træben, a jazz quartet from the Netherlands. Inspired by the album title 'Looking At The Storm' the artwork plays off the idea of an aerial view of a tornado, the movement of nature, and the free flow of jazz. These guys make great tunes, check them out. Thanks much Olaf!
Follow me over on Pinterest. I have created a board of images, diagrams, and schematics from outside of the art world realm that I find relevant and inspirational in an honest and timeless way. I am often asked "What inspires you?". Well, here you go. Enjoy! Raw & Uncut : Powerful visuals explaining left brain concepts.
Another exciting project with my friends at GNU Snowboards (view past collaborations Here). The 'Beauty & Beast' Series is a pair of all-mountain boards, for her and him. Pictured here is The Beast (also check The Beauty). Always a fun process from concept to execution. This set takes cues from tribal art and ambigrams, with a futuristic twist. Nestled into the top graphics are cryptic geo-cursive type treatments for the board names (above and below the center square).
The design began with this central G-N-U diamond and grew symmetrically with type interwoven.
It has been over a year since I worked on this, so it's rad to finally share. These are for the 2014/2015 season so make sure to tell Your Local Shop to get them on the racks. Thanks much Tim. Good times!
I went all out one this one. The perfect way to unwind after designing lots of vector graphics.
Definitely looking forward to bringing some of this painterly energy into my large murals this Summer. The most fun parts with paintings like this are the risky decisions. Taking a piece that could be finished and painting back over 1/2 of it with big gestural washes, and then rebuilding the structure from there.
It's kinda like building a sand castle on the beach and not being sure what will be left the next morning after the high tide. And then improvising based off of the new formations when the water dries.
