The biggest advert in the world.

The biggest advert in the world.

…to create a DPS digital illustration that you can litrally go into forever!!! This complex digital illustration really pushed the bounderies of my mac but the result is quite scary. The file is huge and well over 20Gb in size… massive!!!! You could cover a skyscraper with this and still look into it with a magnifying glass if printing this exact defination at such a huge scale was possible… like I said massive illustration!

The Roots

The Roots, a typographic piece created for the Keystone Design Union. The KDU espouses many masonic ideals and is connected to the Freemasons of New York. Scottish Thistle, Irish Clover, and British and American Roses reflect the entwined historical roots of the Freemasonry organisation.

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.

VOTE for Minga in WMC

Here’s the skinny – i need your help and the best part is it’s super easy! All i need you to do to show support is click the image above or goto this link -  click me – and just click “vote” on the image above or the one titled Mingadigm (that’s me?!) to vote for my inclusion in this exhibition described below! super simple, it helps the process if while you’re voting you are currently logged out of facebook, doesn’t like that for some reason. 1 click is fantastic, but in order to win it’s all about the numbers; so if you’d be so kind as to click “vote” once a day everyday until voting closes,  you’d be completely awesome. thanks for the help. regards minga

event details – -

Become one of the 20 Designers featured in the design gallery at Weapons of Mass Creation Fest 2011. Hundreds are considered for this opportunity and you will receive great exposure for your work. It will be seen by hundreds of people (pretty influential people I might add) throughout the festival and the following week.

Talk about getting your name out there and rubbing shoulders with some of the best! Not only will you earn a spot in the gallery, but your name/link will be featured on wmcfest.com and on all print materials!

Most of the work in 2010 has been done for editorial and commercial such as Nike Inc.,
Art+Auction Magazine, CEO Magazine and The Prime Russian Magazine.

Click to appreciate it!

Thanks

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.
