Wow! It’s been a while…

Anyway, ‘just found out from a friend that I won 2nd place in the ACP’s 2010 Design of the Year – Illustration category for my illustration in SCAN Magazine, the quarterly magazine put together by students at the Savannah College of Art and Design’s Atlanta campus. Had no idea this was even entered. ‘Nice surprise on a Sunday afternoon.

This is probably one of the most beautiful pieces of video I have ever seen. Featuring equally beautiful music by Keith Kenniff (of Helios, Goldmund fame). The first time I watched it I was just struck by how beautiful and weird and crazy life is… The second time, you begin to see the connection to each scene and the concept of the video itself. Do yourself a favor and take ten minutes of your life and watch this at least 3 times.

AS far as what I’m working on? I’ve decided to take a full time position with an agency based out of Columbus, Ohio that is involved in a pretty big project here in Atlanta. I’ll still be doing a bit of freelance on the side and hopefully I’ll finally get to some personal projects I’ve been dreaming up. I’m currently working on artwork for my good friend Tyler, who’s going to be putting out two new EPs very soon.



ATL Collective Poster – Graceland

The ATL Collective was established to foster the Atlanta music scene, encourage collaborations and cross-pollination and to create happenings that will inspire and entertain. Each month the collective picks one album to cover in its entirety. Next month, they’ll be covering Paul Simon’s Graceland. For the poster I chose to represent Simon’s travel to South Africa where he collaborated with several musicians there to achieve the sound of the record. The map, though, is of Atlanta – symbolizing the collective of Atlanta musicians traveling to one spot in order to give their own face to the music of Paul Simon.



Update on posters in Schunck Gallery

Today, I received some pictures from Schunck Gallery in The Netherlands of their “Poster Park” show which featured two of my posters. The show included a pretty cool variety of posters by artists such as John Vogl (including a very cool Mogwai poster of his), Judge, Ken Taylor, and Furturtle, just to name a few.

I’m pretty stoked to have been included in a show which featured a lot of really great posters by artists that I have a lot of admiration and respect for. So thanks to Virginia at Schunck and the gallery for inviting me to take part in the show.



SCAN illustration/Graduation

Previously, I mentioned that I had completed another illustration for SCAN, the magazine published by students at SCAD-Atlanta. Here is that illustration. I’m pretty pleased with the way it came out. I’m also glad that it was attached to an article by my friend Gray Chapman, who is an excellent writer with articles published in Paste Magazine, the Atlantan, and other fine publications. I’d say we make a pretty kick ass team.

Speaking of which, Gray and I graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with our BFAs this weekend! ‘feels good to have accomplished that. Now to keep learning and creating. Tomorrow, I start working as a freelance designer for Matchstic. They are a fine group of people and have produced some incredible work. I am excited to learn from them and be an asset to their already strong team.



Wrapping the lamb, sir

Here’s a preview of one of the projects I’m wrapping up for my final quarter at the Savannah College of Art and Design. This project has been with me for a while. It was actually initially completed about 2 plus years ago. I’ve decided to edit it and add a few things, as well as attach it to next year’s Record Store Day… as if it were offered as a fun give-away for Record Store Day customers and new vinyl collectors. Maybe I should contact RSD? I’ll post pictures of the full project later.

I forgot to mention on here that my website is now done. I’ll be adding a few more projects to it, but it is now a fully functioning website.

I graduate one week from now and in the meantime I’ve been fortunate to land a freelance gig with a shop whose work I have a lot of respect and admiration for. Here’s to hoping many good things come forth from that.

More fun projects coming soon.



Almost there!
