... (ie, Dot Dot Dot)

Using just the circle (or half circle) and these three colors, I'll be creating a variety of patterns all week and giving them potential real-life applications. This week: the shower curtain.

Flower Power

Using the pattern posted from yesterday, I began adding color and blending layers to create this flower.

Thursday, June 25, 2009


Just playing around with simple, repeating patterns... I could be wrong here, but this reminds me of the movie, Weird Science - the bedspread or wallpaper or something in Wyatt's room where they created Lisa. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

3 Sphere Clock/Calendar

At first I wanted to create a clock that only showed the time, nothing else. So I devised this style where the hour and minutes are divided into three layers of numbers that rotate. My concern being that the hour layer would rotate at a different speed than the minutes layers, which could be potentially pose some serious problems. I don't know much about the technical aspects of this.

But then I realized this could become a calendar as well, so I broke up the month and day into colors to help it read better. And instead of using any mechanisms, this would be adjusted by the user manually as a small desk calendar.

A Bovine's Wine

One of several in a book of animal poems I made for my niece and nephew, Sofia and Soren. I'll start posting more of these in the future. (Click to enlarge)

A Nice Coop of Coffee

My new design for an espresso cup that hasn't forgotten about the saucer. As a nice, little surprise you find the hen is on your cup for a reason - to keep her eggs warm. As well as your coffee...

You Can't Spell Wed Without Sweden

Some friends of mine living in Sweden are getting married and having a wedding here in the States (one is from PA). So I was asked to design an invitation for them that used very Swedish elements throughout. This solution is a little bizarre for a formal wedding invite, but they were excited to go with it!

Name That Band

Madison Square Garden + Skybox tickets = Wild Night

Even though I didn't care much for the band, it was a great night. Therefore, my brain is non-functioning this morning. So guess the major artist that we saw! Three syllables...

Turn It On!

My newest t-shirt design, using the very cool Super Glow ink. I was thinking of adding an interesting wallpaper design as well - that got funkier when the lights go out! Not sure if that's overkill though, but the daytime design isn't that exciting. Thoughts? (Click to enlarge)

The Gorilla Guerilla

On the brink of extinction, someone has to do something. This looks semi-familiar, no?

Out of this World

An interesting way to visualize the solar system...

The Test of Time

Timepieces are something I've been playing around with for several years, off and on. Now, the comforting effect of wood can offset modern society's stress-inducing infatuation with knowing the time... All the time.

Svelte Typeface

I designed a few letters for a recent project and decided to make this into a full typeface. Svelte embodies the essence of sexy and cool.

Tuesday, June 2, 2009


I recently did a project with only one rule:
Draw nothing. (This doesn’t mean send a blank sheet of paper.)

An Inside Job?

Idiot Conspiracy Theorists

(Sorry, it was long weekend and this is all I could come up with)
