Tonight I wandered down the street and discovered that
Gallery 1988 was open (I can never remember the days/hours they keep) so I decided to pop in. I've been meaning to go for several weeks now. I missed the opening to the show that is currently up and I really wanted to go, so I'm glad I finally got to see the work.

Ken Garduno, who I've blogged about before, had several pieces on display. Here are a few highlights:

I also was pleased to see several Yoksay Yamamoto pieces. (I'm sorry I don't have a current link to his website) I have seen some of his work before and it always catches my eye and holds me in place for awhile. I love seeing illustrative work in the 3rd dimension. I wish I had more patience to do it myself.. anywho. Here are some work samples.

As I stepped outside into the misty evening, I noticed this building across the street.

The rain makes it look like it's a crying face. I like buildings with faces.

Later, I peeked inside Upper Playground (they were not open.. again with the random hours thing)

Next door was this wheat paste (apologies for the crappy lighting)

i heart CareBears.

Hey Guys,
So I have finished both the look book I was working on and the corn book from a few weeks ago and I finally got them printed.

The look book transformed into a style/trend catalogue for H&M, but purely in a hypothetical standpoint. *This project is for my own personal use only and will not be reproduced. Here is what I came up with. Feedback is always greatly appreciated =)

Get The Facts About Corn
*this book is also intended only for promotional/personal usage and will not be reproduced

Look Book - Update

I apologize for my serious lack of blogging lately. I recently starting working the oh-so glamorous life of retail, so my time and energy for such luxuries as blogging has slowed down quite a bit. However, I have been working on this look book and I wanted to update some of those sketches. The book itself is still in process so I'll keep posting when I get the chance.

Found Art

Today, while working, I found a very humorous brochure on the ground. I was initially drawn to it by the cover art.

It informs me that everyone falls short of "god's standards". Isn't that kind of shitty? We're god's bastard children that aren't good enough.. how very touching. What a delightful little brochure. But don't worry. Jesus will save you.

Jews for Jesus. Yay.

On the way home from work, I found another delightful drawing on the ground. This one done on a piece of cardboard, drawn on both sides. This time I get a flower from a snowman with arms and legs. Yay!

Look Book

Hey guys. I'm working on putting together a look book and designing some swimsuits. I wanted to give myself a project that combined both design and illustration, so here is some of the work I've done thus far

Trend research/inspiration

And The Votes Are In!

Usually when discussing politics I get very angry, but finally, for the fist time in my life I can honestly say I am truly ecstatic with the way things turned out. I admit that I am still a skeptic when it comes to Obama. On the surface he seems like a very decent human being with the intelligence of someone who actually deserved to go to an ivy league school, but at the same time he is still a Politician...

However. At least we don't have some dumbass, gun-toting hocky mom one stroke away from the Presidency.

GOBAMA (for now)
