Fall Watercolors

This fall I completed two paintings and a charcoal drawing. While most of my paintings take about a year to realize, "Tetratorus" was a rapid process from inspiration to finished painting. In the last two weeks of October I conceived and executed the 8x10 watercolor for a friend's wedding gift. The other watercolor, "Decontetras", continues a series of geometry explorations. Finally, I created a wine label design for a friend/co-worker who makes some very creative vints under the moniker "Storyteller".

A Website Resurrection

Where does the time go? Well if you're me, it's been a mix of career work, family adventures and creating art in the wee hours. Lately it has gone into rebuilding this site with the best practices and modern techniques at my disposal. Mobile friendly, animated and dynamic. New and improved to make for a better user experience and show off my web development skills.

With the new design also comes new content. I have finished a several paintings since my last update and posted them in the Look section. I will post more details for them here soon. For now, just revel in the new site and all its technical wizardry.


foresT seed

Inspired by a dream account from a friend, I attempt to create an atmoshere complementing the dream. This is the first song I have ever put vocals to. The words are from Lea Fairchild's dream.


Dusting off the website

In late August I found out that my proposed piece "Hope and Strength" had been accepted to the show Por Vida V. I immediately began working out the details of the sketches I had completed earlier. This wasn't to be just a painting, it was going to be seven and they were all going to be connected together somehow. Many late nights came and went. With just a few days before the deadline we received a week extension. That was a great weight off my back and it allowed me to give some extra attention to the remaining details. Easily the most personal piece of art I have ever created, I'm very happy with how it came together and manifested my vision.

Por Vida was an annual show/event that applies a contemporary take on the traditional Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos (Day of The Dead). Por Vida integrates a themed and curated art exhibit, food and drink, music and installation spaces. It was created by Columbus, Ohio artist Kat Marie Moya who I have known since around 1997.

Over the past two years I have also completed a few other paintings:

Salo web site completed!

Just put some finishing touches on the web site I created for the NYC jazz band Salo. Ben Gallina commissioned me to do the cover art for their recent debut release "Sundial Lotus". Following up with a web site that complimented the cover art seemed like the logical progression.
I also redesigned Ben's personal site www.bengallina.com.

Designed and implemented Derby Outfitters (www.derbyoutfitters.com) in early 2010. The site no longer exists unfortunately.

I helped Andrea Kinter set up a web site to promote her former photography business, Rainbows & Ribbons Photography. We used a flash-based template solution which allowed me to do a little design customization. I also created some marketing collateral for Andrea as well.
