Here is a peek inside the deluxe edition box set for Linkin Park’s release ” A Thousnad Suns” that I created art and did the creative direction for – Available here

UK rock band, To Catch a Thief, approached me about working with them on their new album packaging. They simply provided me with the title and I ran with it and came up with an art direction based on vintage horror films. This is just the cover, the rest of the layout is still in production. More to come later.

Huge project to kick of the year! Got invited by my man Michael over at Ocupop to lead the production on their release of HTML5 tees. Ocupop is the creative behind the entire html 5 identity that dropped earlier this week,  http://www.w3.org/html/logo/ . Partnering with W3C.org they got this thing up in a hurry!. step one for me was to take the html 5 icon, separate for printing. step two, get garments in to print. step three, confirm quality and color matching. step four, coordinate the fulfillment with print shop. step five, take additional identity assets and mock-up additional apparel and other promo items. serious amounts of communication and lots of coffee put this thing all together. many thanks to Ocupop for the opportunity and to W3C for jumping behind it and promoting it. now, go grab yours at http://html5shirt.com/

Today I’m launching my new site dedicated solely to my illustration work; collaborations, commissions and personal pieces. New works will be added over the coming weeks, with several new collaborations nearing completion and several commissions due to go up, keep an eye out for updates. For information and collabs, commissions or to request to view my design folio, simply email via the site.

A Hoberman sphere as an icosidodecahedron

In geometry, an icosidodecahedron is a polyhedron with twenty triangular faces and twelve pentagonal faces. An icosidodecahedron has 30 identical vertices, with two triangles and two pentagons meeting at each, and 60 identical edges, each separating a triangle from a pentagon. As such it is one of the Archimedean solids and more particularly, a quasiregular polyhedron.

An icosidodecahedron has icosahedral symmetry, and its first stellation is the compound of a dodecahedron and its dual icosahedron, with the vertices of the icosahedron located at the midpoints of the edges of either. Convenient Cartesian coordinates for the vertices of an icosidodecahedron with unit edges are given by the cyclic permutations of (0,0,±τ), (±1/2, ±τ/2, ±(1+τ)/2), where τ is the golden ratio, (1+√5)/2. Its dual polyhedron is the rhombic triacontahedron. An icosidodecahedron can be split along several planes to form pentagonal rotundae, which belong among the Johnson solids.

In the standard nomenclature used for the Johnson solids, an icosidodecahedron would be called a pentagonal gyrobirotunda.




[edit] Area and volume

The area A and the volume V of the icosidodecahedron of edge length a are:

A = (5sqrt{3}+3sqrt{25+10sqrt{5}}) a^2  approx 29.3059828a^2
V = frac{1}{6} (45+17sqrt{5}) a^3 approx  13.8355259a^3.

[edit] Related polyhedra

The icosidodecahedron is a rectified dodecahedron and also a rectified icosahedron, existing as the full-edge truncation between these regular solids.

The Icosidodecahedron contains 12 pentagons of the dodecahedron and 20 triangles of the icosahedron:

It is also related to the Johnson solid called a pentagonal orthobirotunda created by two pentagonal rotunda connected as mirror images.

Eight uniform star polyhedra share the same vertex arrangement. Of these, two also share the same edge arrangement: the small icosihemidodecahedron (having the triangular faces in common), and the small dodecahemidodecahedron (having the pentagonal faces in common). The vertex arrangement is also shared with the compounds of five octahedra and of five tetrahemihexahedra.

I’ve updated my site destill.net with a bunch of new work, take a look. Below is a sample of some of the new work, cheers!

I have been working closely with the band Linkin Park over the past year and a half creating visuals and creative directing the new campaign for the release “A Thousand Suns”, their fifth album – also Nielsen Soundscan’s #1 Best Selling Rock album of 2010. This is the SE package ( printed on holographic paper) and the standard package for the album.
