NOTE

I don’t really use the blog section so much. Most of my posts here are projects and they’re all listed on the home page, in order of most recent.

OTHER NEWNESS

Tremendousness made a video and infographic about gaslighting (and the Trump administration). I wrote and storyboarded.

I have an occasional newsletter that you can sign up for and, also occasionally, win things. Go for it.

I started designing ‘zines on my bedroom floor with paper, scissors, photos, and glues. Xerox machines were as high-tech as it got. As I began to design other things (anything and everything) I continued using (and preferring) those simple tools. Strangely, I avoided using computers as long as I could.

Here are four posters I made from about 1992-1995. The master of each was a glued-up 11×17″ sheet of paper. Clockwise from top-left:

  • insideOUT Magazine AIDS benefit concert. That’s actually a photo of Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins playing The Babylon-A-Go-Go in Cleveland, Ohio, circa 1991.
  • 56th Annual Student Art Exhibit. I went to Youngstown State University for a short time before transferring to Ohio University in Athens. I was the president of the Student Art Association at YSU. The hand lettering here was created by photocopying writing on a napkin over and over and over. The text was set on a cold-type machine by my girlfriend who worked at the student paper.
  • random disruptive sequence. My first solo show. It was, quite literally, a very random collection of found objects, photography, constructions, etc. I nicked the title from a photo series that used to run in Freestylin’ Magazine.
  • OU Spring Arts Festival. I have no memory of how I came to design this poster. All I know is I made a label and attached in to a can of Quik chocolate milk powder and shot it. Futura!
