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.
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. Really, it's not so much about doing lots of stuff to show off but its more for the sake of just doing things and learning as much as I can because I can. I've said it before, I love learning and I love a good challenge.
I'll be the first to say that I'm no filmmaker, but I do love shooting a good video from time to time. Last week I purchased a camera slider and wanted to test it out and I knew exactly where to go to get some awesome footage. So early Saturday morning, I packed up all my gear and made the journey out to Griffith Park.
One of the best quotes that pretty much sums up my life as a working designer/developer up to this point is "Fake it 'til you make it." For years I've heard this quote being said over and over and thought it sounded funny (and kinda dirty, actually) but I never really paid too much attention to it.
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 »
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 »
Making planets in Photoshop is one of the few things I can say I've figured out how to do fairly well, quickly, and easily. In this tutorial I will show you exactly the steps I take to make a planet using only a photo of some kind of texture as a starting point.
Time is a strange concept to me. It's probably one of the few things I always think about and wonder what the origins of it were. Time to me seems like one of the hardest and most difficult concepts to grasp from a very questionable and expanded point of view. But in the end I just snap out of it and look at my phone to see what time it is.
I'm just going to come out and say it up front; the project you all know and were excited and hopeful about is officially done. Dead. Finished. AetherAeon was the perfect project. The content I had access to was incredible. But at times it did prove to be overwhelming.
