Q: When did you start using black-and-white for your work and why?
A: I’ve been in love with Xerox machines ever since I can remember, photostrips from old school photo booths, newspaper op/ed power, black ink, white-out, and of course, OREOS.
By far, one of my favorite things is my beautiful, black and smelly 1945 Remington DeLuxe typewriter. I use my typewriter all the time- it’s a workout and I always injure my fingers. But the letters always come out differently depending on how much oomph you give the keys and it’s also ideal for writing love letters.
My typewriter skyline is featured in American Illustration 30.
Two pieces are exhibited in a new book called Typewriter Art: A Modern Anthology by Barrie Tullett.
I call my collaged snapshot collections “Still Motion” and use them for editorial, retail, outdoor and fine art projects including large-scale light boxes, wallpapers and giant booth graphics.
The final collages are the product of many hours of walking around shooting a particular theme like arrows or letters often over the course of several months or even years.
Clients include: Time's FTI Journal, Print Structures, INQ Mobile, The GSMA Mobile World Conference in Barcelona
BLUE is the first in a series of my color poetry on wood pallet paper. Other colors (hopefully) coming soon but the awesome Williamsburg pallet supplier place no longer exists! (very sad)

Urban crayons rule! This is a poster, but it could be actual crayons too. And it would be great if they were scratch and sniff!
