Mother’s Day Card

I've been trying to teach myself more motion graphics in After Effects, so I decided to make a card for Mother's Day this year.

The World/Inferno Friendship Society

I've been wanting to get more into lettering so I finally sat down with my iPad to give it a go. I used a lyric from one of my favorite bands, The World/Inferno Friendship Society.

I made a book

Working with Sunita Deshpande, I helped create an illustrated alphabet book. Originally it was for my nephew's second birthday, but enough people wanted copies that we are producing a first edition on our own. Find out more here.

What On Earth Should I Do With My Kids?

About a year ago while I was at Red Tettemer O'Connell + Partners we were tasked with coming up with an idea that encourages "everyday adventures."

One of the ideas I pitched was a mini-adventure generator in the vein of WhatTheFuckShouldIMakeForDinner.com.

After a good amount of legwork, the brief ended up getting put on the shelf. Then COVID-19 hit and the shelter-in-place orders brought the idea back. You can see the final result at WhatOnEarthShouldIDoWithMyKids.com.

Hotel Illustration

A few months ago while I was on Reddit I came across a photo of a hotel. I thought it would make a really nice illustration, so I saved it. I finally had some free time over the weekend so I went ahead and took a stab at it.

Nuehuevo York

Last year I posted about how I had an idea for a restaurant name and made a logo for it. Well, over the past few days I decided to blow it out. That includes an identity suite, headlines/brand voice, in-restaurant design, social posts (with animation), a website and other collateral. See it here.

Disney Concert Hall

In my ongoing series of significant LA Architecture, I made the Disney Concert Hall. I opted to do the entire series with the outlines I had in the Randy's illustration for consistency.

Truth Hurts

I'm from Georgia, where the current Governor is an idiot who is reopening the state before COVID-19 has been handled and thus putting people's lives at risk. He also stole an election by striking hundreds of thousands of voters from the rolls as Secretary of State just before the election. Given all that, I made this.

Muse by Clio

This morning I found out that the Muse by Clio blog included me in their round up. Thought I'd drop the link here.

Capitol Records Building

After I finished Randy's, I was still feeling super motivated to draw so I decided to take on another Los Angeles landmark. While drawing Randy's I realized that my style lent itself to painting so I made a few modifications. to see how it'd look. Which do you prefer?

As a side note, I took the original mural and dropped it in in Photoshop. I'm not skilled enough to recreate real art on my own.

Randy’s on Reddit

On a whim I decided to post my illustration of Randy's Donuts to r/LosAngeles on Reddit and, well... it kind of blew up. As of 10 pm tonight it's the #1 post with almost 2000 likes.
