Here's a wooden action figure I wrapped up last night. The pic isn't so hot, but I couldn't keep this little guy to myself. There'll be better shots of him when I take portfolio pics. I think it's the best thing I've made yet. I love that his arms move and his head turns and you can even pull him apart for extra gore and fun! I can't wait to make more movable pieces. If this is the kind of work I do when I'm procrastinating on other things, this is the kind of work I should be doing for the rest of my life.

The Greater Good

Here's an illustration I recently completed. Its about smaller parts coming together in support of a greater good. More or less, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Based on my scientific research, I've found that 3 things in life improve the quality of anything they come in contact with. Those three things being wings, bears, and bacon. Having them all together in one place just might be the greatest good of all.

Dream Discover Grow
Lately I haven't been as productive as I would like. I blame the frigid weather. My painted objects have been at a standstill for weeks and I haven't been drawing as much as I would like. On a more positive note, my brother and I beat New Super Mario Bros. and collected all the star coins. Oh. That's where my time has been going. The picture above is for something I've been working on at work.

Matthew Lyons

Beautiful movie title screens from Matthew Lyons. The typography is spot on with his retro style of illustration. Really genius idea, too. Since the movies are all made up, he can really show off his skills in pairing type and narrative without having to be bogged down by preconceived opinions about a particular film. Wish I could bottle these up and take a swig of his talent.

I'm back from vacation and I have lots of pictures to prove it! I saw many things, felt many degrees (or lack thereof) of cold, ate many foods, and enjoyed every second of it--even the parts where I turned into icicles. Upon my return, I was greeted with a beautiful Gestalten book, Naive: Modernism and Folklore in Contemporary Graphic Design. Open the book up to any spread and prepare to be inspired. A very welcome addition to my library.
