When time turns in upon itself, you question everything

I've been on a new trajectory. It’s great; it’s weird, It’s new. I love new. I also love Old. That’s neither here nor there. I’ve been feeling like a teenager again, lately. In the sense where I’m acutely aware how temporary so many people in one’s life tend to be. It’s not a judgement call;… Continue reading When time turns in upon itself, you question everything

It’s almost Halloween! Here’s a painting of a creepy girl

Here's a piece I did Monday evening. I've had these cradled wood panels in a box for several years now, and kinda forgot about them. But also, I tend to get too precious about materials (fear of sullying the perfect blank page, as it were). Time to stop that. TL made the panels for me a few years ago; I… Continue reading It’s almost Halloween! Here’s a painting of a creepy girl

Cartography of Amsterdam West

This map, which I designed / illustrated for Pendergast in Amsterdam, went live on their website a week or two ago. I worked with them to articulate entryways to the neighborhood, highlighting routes for cyclists, cars and public transport. In the midst of designing, I traveled to Amsterdam. We held meetings. I went to the restaurant a… Continue reading Cartography of Amsterdam West

Photos from owners of the 2015 Zodiac calendars

Back in September I completed a successful 30-day Kickstarter campaign to fund a 2015 card-calendar based on the signs of the Zodiac, re-imagined as heraldic house sigils (think Game of Thrones). I've received some lovely photos of the calendars in situ from some of my generous backers. Magnets are a great way to display each month,… Continue reading Photos from owners of the 2015 Zodiac calendars

The 12 Houses Zodiac Calendar for 2015

As I posted about a lot over the past few months, I’ve designed a calendar based on the signs of the Zodiac, but re-invented as house sigils or shields, complete with a house motto that distills the nature of each sign to a single phrase (as in the Game of Thrones series and the long heraldic… Continue reading The 12 Houses Zodiac Calendar for 2015

Resin jewelry process

Zac has undertaken to be my apprentice since I decided to get back into making photographic resin pendants, etc. We did our first batch last week. Step one involves selecting images, sizing them to the bezel settings, printing them out on hi quality paper, and trimming the images by hand. We then seal the images into… Continue reading Resin jewelry process
