Finally got the save the date I designed for good friends Danielle Mitchell and Deane Zelaya! Very grateful to work with a chill bride with good taste 😎. Printed by Able Letterpress in West Palm Beach.
Back in NY after a great week in the sun painting my first 50 foot mural @elizabeth.ave.station! Thanks @gatherandseek and @danni_mitchell for making it all happen. Also to @sunascendant for help drawing in the lines :) Great way to start off 2017.
Turning trash into treasure lately with an edition of hand painted plastic bags—the first item available in my newly minted ONLINE SHOP. Click shop above ^ :)
I would personally rather live at a moderate pace and die old, but to each his own—little lettering sample created to celebrate a song release by two great people making great music: Stolar & Sun Ascendant.
I am seldom afforded the luxury of taking my time, but as it turns out, the more time I take to try new things, the more ways I discover to start over...or decide not to?
Anyway, whatever I'm making two of these now.
Finally getting around to posting an old project for Pepsi, art directed by Chandelier Creative. The goal was to create and loose and liquified tagline that could work in many different sizes and colors. While I'm only showing some of the final sketches and vectorization, we went through many iterations exploring shape, thickness, movement and overall does-this-look-like-it-could-be-made-of-goo-ness.
Sadly the project was killed, but I loved spending so much time analyzing the letterforms and trying to (literally) flow throughout the process.
Long live Sundays.
I've been drawing a lot of these little ladies lately, enough so that I started a tumblr—Alive and Feeling Things. Check it out and follow along for more babes, bangs, and all the feels.
Peek at printed version of these floral zodiac cards created in collaboration with Chelley Co! Foils represent the 4 elements, and each version is illustrated with the flower corresponding to that month.
Added bonus, I now have a simpler way to know what flowers to get someone on their birthday...
Snag 'em while they're hot! http://shopchelley.com/
This weekend I had the pleasure of attending Alex Trochut's "Letter Puzzles" class at Cooper! While everyone had completely different results with their type experiments, here's a detail of a little something I learned—FEATHER TYPE
Detail shot of camouflaged cool blues for my final quote of the week on AIGA Design! "Be a keen observer of the ordinary" - Vincent Contorno. View the full project here.
I never really thought I'd get the opportunity to work on large victorian wigs, but that day finally came. These woolly beauties were made alongside Nicole Licht, and thanks to her masterful experimentation, we now know that construction hats, newsprint and quilting foam make the perfect padding for big hair. Watch the top-heavy action here.
Behind the scenes shot of the fourth Etsy video—Unwrap your new best friend. Side note, those chains also made a great halloween costume. See the cuteness in action here.
Behind the scenes shot of the first Etsy video—Unwrap your fuzzy feelings. Those surprisingly obedient bunnies definitely stole the show, and were probably the most ridiculous thing I witnessed during this whole video process. See them in action here.
Behind the scenes shot of the second Etsy video—Unwrap your family traditions! So much love for all the people in this video, especially Twiggy, our in-house reindeer. Full family fun here.
Embroidered type to kick off this year's Craft Party at Etsy. The theme for 2013 is Recapture: bring new meaning to your photographs. Most notable of the diys—embroidering on your old photos.
Standing in front of our completed floral mural for Etsy's One of a Kind Christmas pavillion in Chicago. Excited to see what happens when we give everyone paint markers to color in the lines.
4 hours, 2 beers and 1 stick of chalk later, I've finally wrapped up this mural in Etsy's headquarter office. Hope this makes the kitchen a little bit brighter.
What better way to break in our new office space at Etsy than with a studio-warming party, complete with crudités spelling out "Welcome" for all of our guests.
