The Rams

I went to the Rams game with my wife yesterday and decided to make a little Instagram Story about it. Also, working on something new at the moment that I'm hoping will be ready to premiere early next week.

The Elon Musk of it All

The other week I posted a joke on LinkedIn (as I'm one to do) and people seemed to appreciate it.

Old School/New School

Yesterday I went around town with copies of my partner Eddie Babaian's résumés and posted them outside some of the agencies here in LA. This morning I posted them to LinkedIn with the caption:

Eddie and I grew up hearing if we wanted a job, we just needed to walk in and ask for the hiring manager. COVID/WFH has made that more difficult, so we left our resumes where some agencies would find them.

RPA

TBWA\Chiat\Day LA
72&Sunny

So far the post has over 160 likes and 14,000+ impressions. Thank you to all the agencies for having a sense of humor and not issuing cease and desists to us.

Update: Less than a week later we are up to 27k+ impressions. Crazy.

“Reorganized”

Found out this morning I was being let go as a part of an agency reorganization, which is the long way of saying I'm back on the market for full-time and freelance work. Please reach out if you need someone. I also come with a partner now, Eddie Babaian.

We have a ton of experience across verticals and are happy to work our frumpy butts off for you.

Between 2 Rides

Earlier this week the trailer for my new project dropped. My partner Eddie and I have been working on this since I started in January. The final payoff will be five 7-10 minute episodes that will live on eBay Motors new YouTube Channel. It was a massive production with 6 shoot days (5 consecutive) where we shot an episode a day, the 6th was a studio day. You can watch the trailer below and as things release I'll be adding a new page collecting it all on my home page.

Home

Decide to do an illustration of my house. My now wife and I moved in back in June of last year and things have gone pretty well since.

I'm debating the merits of starting an Etsy shop where I sell custom prints of people's homes.

Inglewood

Got bored and fidgety so I started playing around in Illustrator and then Photoshop. This was the result. Context, I live in Inglewood.

LinkedIn Ad School Rant

It really does bother me that agencies don't want to train people on the job anymore. I think it makes a huge impact on who can get into the field. Journalism has the same problem when I was working there. The only people who could take internships were people from families that made enough money to subsidize the experience. It excludes anyone from middle or lower class backgrounds, and that's a problem.

Pigeon Art

I shot a photo last year and when I was looking at it again I thought it could be better as a digital painting.
