Doomsday LA

Decided to start an illustrated series of monsters of various sorts around the city and county of Los Angeles. This is the first one I worked on today.

Partnership

Back in 2019 I met Sunita Deshpande and we hit it off, last year we worked on two big side projects together (The Side Show and our alphabet book). We also did a little freelance together. We decided it was time to make a joint website so over the past month we designed it out. We formally launched it yesterday.

Because our association with The Side Show and our shared love of side projects, we wanted to make sure our not-for-profit projects had a prominent place on the site. Long story short, we ended up theming the portfolio around a restaurant menu with a section for main courses, side dishes and the dessert that is our about us section. Take a look and hope you enjoy! (Also, hire us.)

Beyond Nike

Just doing a little bit more lettering on my iPad because it had been awhile. Wanted to try combining a few different styles to see how it would come out.

Not loving how the DO fits in with the rest of it even if I like how it came out independently. Do like how the IT fits into the swash of the k though.

Manhattan Beach

Took my drone out to Manhattan Beach today. The nice thing about this time of the year is that the golden hour lasts like 4 hours. You can see more of my photos from today by clicking here.

My fiance got me a drone for my birthday last week. Today I took it up to Chatsworth with us to play around with it. You can see more photos here.

Tiger Kid Illustration

When I was in 2nd grade, they had a career day. One of the kids at my school came dressed as a Tiger. I'm pretty sure I dressed as an architect, and given that I didn't become one I can't really make fun of the kid for not becoming a tiger.

Coffee Illustration

Was walking around earlier today and this image popped in my head, so I decided to illustrate it.

Santa Monica Photography

I went over to Santa Monica just before sunset tonight to shoot some photos. As a challenge I only let myself use my 85mm lens. You can see my photos by clicking here.

Nilza Name Art

My friend Nilza was hanging out last night and I started playing with her full name (first + last) in Procreate on my iPad. I customized the Nico Roll brush that's built in so that it doesn't fade out at the start and end of the stroke, which is the first time I've ever customized a brush in Procreate.

Venice in Film

Back in October I pulled out my medium format film camera and took some photos in Venice. I finally got them processed and scanned. You can see them over on my photoblog.

As a side note, I realized I don't normally post any of my photography on here. I'll start linking over to all that whenever I update because I realized I never usually post that stuff in here.

Surf Van

I went out to take some photos in Venice on Sunday and this van drove past me. There was something super fun about it so I tried to make something using it. Also, pen tooling out the van out was a major pain.
