AdWeek did a recap piece about The Side Show which was pretty cool of them. Hard to believe that a little over 3 months ago this thing wasn't even a page in a Google Slides deck yet. We came a long way.
Anyway, click here to read the article.
A few weeks back I hinted at a project I was working on. Well, we officially launched it this morning. There will be more to come over the next two months, but feel free to check out the first ever Award Show and Creative Week focused on side projects of people in the advertising and design communities.
I have a great team working on this with me. Sunita Deshpande is my co-founder. We worked together earlier this year to create my alphabet book. We also pulled in Camilla Ciappina from Pimp My Portfolio, Bre Fernandez and Laura Canzano who run the Breaking Ad Instagram account and Maddy Kramer from inVisible Creatives to be our Board of Directors. As the project kept growing, we brought in some additional contributors as well: Yanci Wu, Andrew Thompson, Alex Escalera, Isaac Lee and Grettel Aguirre.
It's been a crazy month and I had no idea I'd be leading a team of 11 when Sunita and I first decided to go for it. It's been fun though and I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out a little under 2 months from now.
Today I'm starting a new freelance gig at 180LA and last week I started working on a new side project that will hopefully be ready to reveal on September 1st.
That said, updates will be sparse as I'm fully committed to tackling these two items with everything I have and won't have time for the smaller art projects I tend to drop on here.
