Dear Reader,

Happy News! In February I was honored with an associate professorship and tenure at Kansas State University. It's an honor to work alongside some of the most dedicated faculty and hard-working students in the midwest.

In June I will give a talk about animated editorial illustration at The Ohio State University. It's part of the MoDe Conference. (I'm obsessed with subtle, eternally looping animations in the world of editorial illustration).

Below are a few recent design projects. Editorial, poster, experimental, animated, and so on.

It's always wonderful hearing from old friends and new. Drop me a note and say hello!

music is oxygen

the uncanny-valley digital aesthetic seemed to fit the electronic music theme. Rendering the work as a large poster print took almost three days. (1-color, 70x100cm). In 2016 it was part of the Golden Bee graphic design exhibition in Moscow.

because an "uncanny-valley" digital look seemed to work again for the editorial subject, I wrangled cinema4d and photoshop for this design. Lighting the reflections was brutal, but it was a lot of fun extending the concept as a looping animated gif.

samuel beckett
poster series

This series highlights four of Samuel Beckett best plays: Waiting for Godot, Catastrophe, Endgame, and Happy Days (2-color, 24x36in). The set was recently exhibited in the 8th Triennial of the Stage Poster in Sofia. These simple textured color reductions are increasingly a part of recent work.

One of my short animations (part of the "aphasia" series) is on permanent display at a science museum in Norway (Inspriria Science Center). The building is a work of architectural art, and I hope to visit soon.
