OVERHEARD is a miss-ordered diary of the dark, crude, random and occasionally funny snippets of conversation that I’ve noted down.
For a few years now I’ve taken the nonsense I hear and written it into my phone’s ‘notes’. The quotes – each out of their context – are tagged with the themes of the conversation it was taken from and it’s colour is based on its general category; MIND, AIR and BLOOD. Colour intensity is linked to the time it was written. Every quote has an illustration that embodies its narrative. The snippets are verbatim from my phone (drunken spelling and all).

This is the video the amazing guys at GangCorp / What The Film / Wisibility did for my participation as an opener of the Fotolia Ten 2013 project, featuring 10 artists from 10 countries in 10 months, launching a free PSD for 24hs. every 10th of the month (except feb. and march where it’s the 8th)
Below you can see the piece that was offered as a multi-layered PSD for learning purposes.
The work and effort they put into making this is undescribable, they are true professionals and are amazing to work with.
We went across Buenos Aires, filming our own customs and traditional places, trying to capture the escence of a city that’s being modernized and leaving the escence behind.
You have subtitles in many different languages to view this video available through the captions button on YT, so i hope you enjoy it.
As additional data, this project was announced through tv, newspapers and online media in 40 countries around the world, next some of the online articles where it was published:We’ve been working last month with the friends from What The Film / Wisibility, about my participation in 2013 edition of Fotolia Ten.

January 10th my PSD for the collection was available for download for free, so i hope it was useful for people learning to compose and Photoshop in general. In this post it’s the video made by them representing Argentina through my participation in the project, and showing places of Buenos Aires, while you can listen some of my comments and see me working around or doing some interviews.
The Pantheon is new personal music and animation project. Curating a new rock’n'roll pantheon of up and coming music stars from the underground UK scenes.

This piece showcases my newest addition to my typeface collection called just simply “Italics”. This is a free flowing italic typeface that is based on inspiration from various calligraphers, most notably Luca Barcellona. This elegant lettering style is a departure from my gothic scripts, but works well in this case against the gothic uncial script. A calligraphy I have been learning from explained to me that layout is more important than the actual characters themselves and I am gaining an appreciation of this quickly.
The quote is actually from myself. Lately I have been invested in learning and improving my calligraphy skills, but while doing so I have found it to be a completely relaxing experience — one that is truly good for the soul.
This typeface is over 125 high resolution bitmap lowercase characters that work well together and are complimented from the contemporary capitals that I created a month or so ago. Several variations of each letter have been prepared. This typeface is suitable for high resolution printing.
If you are interested in any of these typefaces or would like to develop a font let me know. I will be rolling out a few more typefaces over the next few weeks.
