New Steve Aoki and DJ Tiesto ‘Tornado’ Music video We at Laundry! directed and produced with our rocking team of designers and animators. Visually inspired by 80s arcade hit Tempest, we assembled this galactic kamikaze space race ending in DJ tiesto’s 3d head exploding among other entertaining moments.

Guest cameo appearances by Omar Doom of Inglorious bastards fame, mike trevino of vampire diaries and DJ Tiestos 3d head.

After months of laboring back and forth with programmers, we finally relaunched our website with a bundle of animation and live action projects within the realm of branding, music videos, commercials and beyond.

So this is a prime example of how the Kdu can work advantageously. Last year, the Kdu graciously curated a Hennessy artist collaboration bottle between myself and DJ Steve Aoki. Our collaboration was quite positive and we got along well enough to make a music video together for the first single off his new album. Shot just months after finishing Hennessy artwork, we spent the remaining months finishing the design and animation here at Laundry! The moral is it is as much about making dynamic work as it is about being collaborative and not an asshole to foster further collaborations.

I connected with the homey Levi maestro to make a limited edition poster for the Super Stupid dummy grind party hes throwing to raise money for japan. The trend has passed, but we both still hold the people of japan, our homies and strangers close to our heart and took the opportunity to both do what we do best paired with a few other like minded people, creatively to raise support. All proceeds from donated products go directly to japan relief, and the event will feature the tunes of Dj 9th wonder plus a few other guests if you are here in LA this weekend at the key club.

From a creative level, Levi captured pretty closely my art process from start to finish, from pen, to computer to silkscreen, in a simple playful way I think really pleasantly captures the overall Laundry! vibe well. The only part he made look easy was the screen printing process which was a bit of a feat. Anyhow, enjoy.

Let me start off by saying I am not much for joke or comedy graphics in general. I find them shallow and often more cheap than funny and generally try to avoid such projects. An associate got in touch recently with a proposition of creating graphics based around the rants of the one and only Charlie Sheen however, which much against my normal anti comedy stance seemed like a really interesting opportunity to participate in the rise or fall of an acting legend depending on your take on it. Regardless, his many signature sayings really lent themselves to fun iconography.

I am experimenting with cel animation for a new upcoming project and put together this animated alphabet to help me figure out what I am up against technically and creatively.

We at Laundry! recently completed this animated film for Levi’s showcasing their Trucker jacket collaborations with Opening Ceremony, Neighborhood/Stussy, Billy Reid, Filson and Pendington. Our concept was to create a world made of denim where a single character wearing the collaboration jacket exists within the environment where the partnering jacket company is from, NY, LA, Alabama, New Mexico and Oregon. We built this entire animation with stop motion of the jackets and stills of denim put together in adobe after effects to create a fake sense of dimension. See below for the film.

I finally put together a personal site for my design and illustration work with hopes of pushing the less commercial side creatively and highlighting the less corporate side of my body of design.

We had the pleasure at Laundry! of throwing in our two cents typographically for Will.i.ams new video feat. the ever unique Nicki Minaj which was our main reason for taking this on. The concept was to visually nod to korean game shows and their frenetic rediculousness and pair that with both Will and Nicki’s spastic delivery. We have no idea what the words say, we are told they are close translations. Click here to see more of our work.

This project took almost all year to come together but the results are glorious. The Kdu hq in brooklyn lead by David Gensler, Lex and the team spearheaded this collaboration between a bunch of talented musicians and artists inlcuding myself to create these custom hennessy bottles. Here is one I created with dj steve aoki. For more info about the project and other artists involved click here. Seriously big ups to The Kdu for this opportunity.

The concept for this video was to simulate a contrast between the rugged user made animated gif graphics across the internet, and dated yet unachievable beauty advertising imagery. Add persian and arabian myspace desktop graphic influences, and the rest is history. Here are some of the designs we created to influence our animations and direction throughout the video with Maya. A link to the video can be found on our site here.

I can remember the very first time I saw Laundry’s work. It was linked on Newstoday back in 2001 or 2 and I was blown away. I am proud to call PJ a friend and a loyal member and constant collaborator of the KDU. His new reel is nothing less than amazing.
One of these days I am going to convince him to animate a KDU logo or some pictures of my cats and dogs flying over the moon shooting laser out their eyes or something…
Until then, enjoy:
