I recently walked away from a long-term “contract”. There was some dishonesty on the client’s side and things quickly escalated. The whole thing turned into a pretty huge joke…


The lesson to learn – always start with a contract – even if you trust the client like you would a homeboy. People are hungry for that money. Some real “live, laugh, learn” bullshit.

Exploration – Human beings are adventurers; exploration a part of our essence. We long to push back boundaries, to uncover. The unknown, whatever it may be, calls to us. We are driven to understand the nature of the universe, ourselves, and beyond. The frontier is everywhere.

Expansion – Yet this exploration is not the end of the frontier – it is not the end of the unknown. The frontier is simply moved to greater heights, and still it calls us. This is the paradox of our ever-expanding sphere of knowledge; the more we come to know, the more we contact the vastness of the unknown. The known and unknown is in constant flux.

Reciprocity – And the frontier, in moving to greater heights, has been changed by the very exploration of it. And the explorer, too, has been changed, acquiring knowledge and adapting to this new knowledge. The quest for knowledge forces change.

Event branding for TEDx Vancouver’s 2011 theme “The Frontier”. A series of dynamic identities manipulated by ever-changing data.

Wow, I finally did an update on here… I have had way too many things on the go lately – which cramps my consistency. Anyway… here is some stuff I recently did for Indian Summer – the debut EP from the electronic duo Falcons.

Substance based experiments for Nike wordmarks. Letters created by hand with modeling clay and vinyl. Letterforms then photographed, edited, and colours inverted – a dirty mess that worked out in the end. Check out the rest here.

Here are a couple of alternates from my recent site update. The type based image was a lengthy mess around in Cinema 4D, and the photograph was studio photo / Cinema combo – the chick is my little sister.

This project has been getting a bit of hype lately and some people were curious about the process – so here it is. It was pretty basic really – I shot a series of portraits, printed the shots, ripped and overlapped, and then photographed again.
The idea was to illustrate the human layers of dermal as character / complexity / whatever you’re hiddin!




You can view the rest of the series here.

I got the projector fired up for a big “hello!”. I’m thrilled to be part of the community, and I look forward to the involvement. I’m not usually a man of many written words, so I’ll try to do the talkin through imagery.
