Object vs. Subject – Introduction

I've come across lots of forms of art over the past few years. I've also come into contact with the creators of those artworks and the observers that enjoy and appreciate them and their hard work. From graphic/web designers to illustrators. From musicians and performers to photographers and videographers. When one begins to analyze the world from a point of view in which everyone in it consists of creators who are viewed and admired by outside observers, the vastness and sophistication of the human experience from a creative sense begins to become clear.

What Do I Do Now?

I do a lot of things. Like seriously. Let's be honest here. I have my hand in tons of different creative outlets and I enjoy doing them all.

I've said it before, I love learning and I love a good challenge.

I Love Los Angeles

Los Angeles is the only place I’ve ever called home. Never lived in any other city or any other state. I’ve never really even traveled much outside of L.A. only until recently. That being said, I still feel as foreign and new to most of the city. You see, I have this problem. And that... Read more »

New Illustrations + A New Lettering Project I Started

I don’t draw as much as I should. I’ve known that for a while now and it bugs the hell out of me. I used to draw a ton when I was a kid. Over the past few years I started teaching myself how to do hand-lettering. Which greatly improved my typography skills as a... Read more »
