Four large-scale animations created in collaboration with Sundance TV for the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Visuals on view at Sundance TV HQ in Park City, Utah on giant 34-foot-wide LED screen.
Animations explore the concept of "story" and it's importance to Sundance's brand messaging- the light, the scene, scenes that define and the creative process of writing and storytelling. Visuals all created with handmade elements and photographed including type from my beloved 1945 Remington DeLuxe typewriter (typewriters as a magical age-old tool for writers and tale-tellers throughout history.) Animated with Julia Kuswardi. Live shots from Instagram.
I spent two years working with an awesome start-up based in San Francisco called VOO!, a social platform geared towards shared creativity. I collaborated with them soup-to-nuts, working as Creative Director on everything from brand analysis, copywriting, storyboarding, character design, presentations, creating virtual goods and environments…you name it, I did it.
UK-based INQ Mobile licensed a few of my images and photographic collages for giant booth graphics at The GSMA Mobile World Conference in Barcelona. The visuals gave a unique feel to their eye-catching 3D construction for all to walk through and experience.
I created a large MMA-themed painting for Bellator's beautiful new corporate offices in Hollywood. The piece is called "FIGHT" and is 54" X 96" / Enamel on canvas panel. It made an exciting journey from east coast to west coast!
Re:Construction is a public art program produced by the Downtown Alliance to create colorful landmarks and brightened streetscapes. Excerpts from my "Greatest City on Earth" series were featured on a construction site in downtown NYC on Fulton and Nassau in 2012. Featured on Communication Arts Exhibit.
The 1000 Journals Project is an ongoing collaborative experiment following 1000 journals throughout their travels. I got involved in the project as one of a group of artists asked to create an original journal cover. Years later, out of hundreds of journal entries, my art was chosen for the cover of a published compilation by Chronicle Books. The project expanded into a film by Andrea Kreuzhage, where I designed the title credits and worked with an animator. There have been several exhibitions featuring the journals including a show at the SF MoMA.
Curius, a Paris-based design shop, invited me to contribute to a mural project on view at Gare Montparnasse. The theme of the murals: what we think about when we travel – the title in french is “J’avance, Donc Je Pense.” A handful of artists from Montreal, Melbourne, Sao Paulo, London and Paris also contributed to the murals which are giant collages.
My art is used to create office experiences as colorful large format murals.
PS is an awesome creative printing lab specializing in rich visual experiences based in downtown NYC. I’ve worked with them on a bunch of exciting projects including: branding and strategy, website, marketing materials, retail environments, large-scale light boxes, wallpapers and one-of-a-kind furniture and lighting.
I created six collage-y characters for Nickelodeon’s teen television network for use in animated on-air spots. The characters needed to appeal to the young, teenage demographic and captured the essence of six diverse “types” each with a distinct voice.
