Merry Christmas 2012

As the year draws to a close, we are reminded of the simple pleasure of the holiday season. For instance, I think we all can remember sitting around the the tree decorating with our families, or reading and hearing various stories of Santa Claus. I distinctly remember seeing all the different pictures and posters of Santa done by the one and only Norman Rockwell, something I look forward to every year. So as a tribute to the late great illustrator and the wonderful times with family around the Christmas tree, though it may be late...I bid you all Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

A Fun Little Bauhaus Bot...

So, It's been a little over a month since the last post on this wonderful little blog of mine, and many thing have happened since then. I'm not going to bore you with all the gory details, just the sweet, simple factoids that make up my current situation. I unfortunately had a run in with the legal system, due to some ticket charges I mistakenly put off. That certainly wasn't a good financial decision, and to top it all of, little child of mine that is my MacBook, was stolen. So alas, I am with little money and without a computer, but dare I see a light at the end of the tunnel. All thing shall come to pass, but in the mean time, I am using whatever resources I have to create know and exciting content in my creative arsenal. The newest edition is my little friend, the Bauhaus Bot. I have always been inspired, intrigued and influenced by the great design school/movement of Bauhaus. A fair amount of my design has shown a lot of Bauhaus references. So present to you, a simple robotic
Bauhaus-esque style piece for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

A Post About Love

Now, forgive me for being emotional (or EMO as the kids call it these days) but the author of and manager of this blog as been struggling with an unbreakable pattern dealing poor relationship habits and choices. I'm usually one to keep it to myself and a close few of friends and family, but I feel it is time to cast out a bit of a vent to see if there is any sort of...preliminary healing, that can come from this.

I have ben told that I am a, relatively good looking guy (feel free to develop your own opinions, they matter none to me) and the standard this day and age is that the good looking people tend to have the best luck with relationships and the opposite sex (if you are heterosexual in this case). It has been nearly a year since my last girlfriend and I can't help but think, "what the fuck did I do wrong?" The last few of my relationships have been, problematic, to say the least, from manipulation to straight up lying, It never seems to work out for me in the end. Now comes the difficult admittance of my own faults. I have had a habit of connecting with a girl and then enveloping myself with her and only her, basically I stick to the one female, even though we have only embrace the connection and any idea of dating has only barely started, and then, however many dates or days (sad I know) later, I get that disappointing text message or phone call saying things like, "You're an amazing guy but..." and ending with "..I'm so sorry". Whether they are saying things like they want to focus on their career and they don't want to break my heart, or that we are just not right for each other. Needless to say 9 times out of 10 they have found a better (or be it douchier) guy to spend their time with, and find it better for them if they lay me with a bullshit excuse then just tell me flat out, but iI digress. Yet I get my hopes up for that one girl and all else becomes second to this person (relationship wise) I used to have the problem of putting my girlfriend before everything else, including family, work and my education (perhaps whoever I was with at the time will understand the damage that was done with that type of manipulation). Thankfully I have learned from my mistake to better prioritize things that will help me survive and not turn me into a dick to other people. It still seems the the pattern of getting my hopes up and being severely disappointed is that last little inch that is between me and the first step to happiness.

Something I forgot to mention to anyone reading this who knows me in the relationship manner. Please keep in mind I dont hate you (most of you) <<actually disregard that, I just severely dislike some of you, and I hope you will know who you are.  Also, this is for a certain demographic of women, the "whine about every guy, yet crawl back to the same douchy type" focus group of women. I unfortunately had a run-in similar to this earlier today, and I know for the fact that girl will not read this, and if she does, she will probably make me out to be the bad guy, and talk all kinds of shit and negativity, and im sure plenty of the "douche-bag guido-wannabe" guys will sympathize with her, but anyway...Ladies if a man legitimately reaches out to you sincerely to get to know you, keep in mind I didn't say hook up, but get to know you, don't ignore them, and then go off...ON no man likes you and you can't find the right guy (even though you will probably crawl back to your "fuck head" of an ex just because he's all you could get or for some other God-forsaken reason...wink wink). And finally when that guy has had enough of your pathetic bullshit of ignorance and stuck-up pickiness, and tell you whats up, don't make excuses like "oh I was really busy" or "there's too many messages to keep track of (excuse the girl sed today)", and then try to tell them off by calling them a dick and what not. Sorry ladies, none of that is classy or respectable by any means. And in all honesty if this doesn't sink in, let me direct you to a song The ill Mind of Hopsin 5, he can easily speak to your ignorant sensibilities. Keep in mind I am not here to offend I just need to get this out in the world, and if you do get offended, come to me like an adult about it, or just shut your mouth, Facebook is not an anonymous toilet you can shit in, public forums always have a way of getting back to you.

The Letter Series

It's always fascinating when you are asked to pass the time at work...for three days straight. Your mind starts opening up in a, dare I say, censored manner. I say that because I am at work and freedom is limited by a level of professionalism that need to be maintained. but while passing the time, I came across a lot of Typography inspiration, and I found myself sketching letters and creating new shapes. and I figured I may do a little series of my own letters. So here are the first two, the letters "A"and "B", enjoy!

Slinky - Emotcnz Crew

Hello again friends! I have come to you again with a new installment of a poster series for my new dance crew EMOTCNZ. This particular poster depicts our resident b-boy (breakdancer in non- "hip hop" lingo) Slinky. He is an extremely talented dancer and it is a treat for anyone to see him move. This is one of at least five posters to come and a 6th one to cap off the series. Stay tune for the new stuff.  Enjoy!

Hey hey hey! What is up my little homies, I have been absent for a fair amount of time, but I am coming to you now with some of my new ventures and projects. In the past few months many things have happen. One unfortunate event was my leaving my occupation at Infinite Scale, I was sad to leave but it only means bigger and better things to come. So in the spirit of that I decided to pursue more of my dance career, and I put together a crew with a few of my good friends: Murphy (aka THe KiDD) and Bryan (aka B-boy Slinky), and we have named ourselves EMOTCNZ (pronounced "emoticons"), and this is a first look at the graphic side that I have created for us. There are new and big things coming for us, so please stay tuned< I want all of you to be there with us. Enjoy

Something just for fun...

So back in November, I decided to have a little fun with a little print project of mine. I took a look at some  inspiring concert posters and other gig design paraphernalia and took on a little Kanye West poster. There was no way for it to be used as an actual poster design for the tour but I was nice to try out. So here I have the poster for your viewing pleasure, and perhaps Mr. West will take a liking to it as well. Have a look and enjoy!

For your viewing pleasure...

So, I decided to set up a little link for all my viewers (yes, all possibly 10 of you) to take a look at my design portfolio...Keep in mind I have a deep understanding of my work, so if there is anyone out there feeling feisty enough to steal any of my work, you can trust that you won't get very far. But enough of the legal scary talk, take a look a what it is that I love to do.  Enjoy, and new stuff coming soon!

It is Final...

The time has come! for the last few months, as you may have seen in previous entries, I have been working on a new personal brand (or re-brand for short) that will span such things as business cards to poster, and a brand new website. The first step was a new logo, the hardest and most challenging of any project or rebrand (in my personal opinion). I spent plenty of time understand philosophies in logo interpretation, what logos represent, and how i could bring that all together into one, new, improved and simplistic icon.  Eureka! I have finally succeeded in creating a logo that i believe solidifies myself in every aspect of my personality and professionalism. I the final Icon and logotype here for your viewing pleasure. Thank you and enjoy!
