symbols, exploration of
The exploration of symbols has been the fundamental impetus for many projects of mine. Symbols are, by their nature more than simply what they are visually. They are attached to an idea which allows humans to communicate over time and distance without using sound. Previously I was interested in developing a visual language that could be understood without needing to learn the language (something untrue of every writing system on the planet right now). I found myself drifting towards certain specific ideas with such a large project. Eventually I completely destroyed the project and with what was left, rebuilt it. The form it now takes is one focused on symbols that express an idea of universality and the repetition of form in the universe from micro to macro. The animations are a representation of the universal language of the universe itself. The true, naturally understood language that all humans interact with at all times and are themselves comprised of.
I use Flash to explore animation and the way I want to express this idea. Flash allows me to rapidly produce snippets of ideas that I may or may not use. My development takes the form of a tree. A central trunk is the main theme I have been following from the beginning, that of language and symbol. Off of this trunk are many different paths that have lead to dead ends; ideas that I am less interested in and don’t have a place in my main project. These ideas however, just like the branches on a tree, provide the core idea with even greater strength. They feed the core and through these ideas I’m able to better understand what exactly I am doing.
They allow me to define the idea. I find these dead-ends extremely important and informative to the work. The process has not surprised me; I know I often move around from idea to idea rapidly but I also know there is a reason and there is a connection even if it isn’t immediately apparent. The central idea is revealed from multiple perspectives and also negatives until there is no confusion. The final form of the piece will be an animation supported by these dead-ends. It will be stored online and made accessible.

BTICH (Because True Individuality Can Happen) Bags
Teaser marketing campaign promoting individuality among women. I illustrated three different bags; The BonaFide BTICH, The Busy BTICH and The BTICH Bandit.
A woman’s bag is her lifeline
A woman’s bag is her freedom
A woman’s bag is her womanhood
Because true individuality can happen
B is an ongoing examination and exploration of self image.

I am developing a series of thirty books (their spines, nicked to maintain sequence, shown in thumbnail image above), each one using as its text one of the minimalist news items written by Félix Fénéon (1861-1944 *) for a Parisian newspaper in 1906; and each one using one of thirty images I have created. Those stories are collected in Novels in Three Lines (2007)... I am treating [my] images in a variety of ways, including cropping, use of small details, and repetition.
The images I am creating collage the lives of the protagonists — their last thought, a nightmare, or how they might have passed away. My objective is to create drama, surprise, afterthoughts. For this, pacing and omission are everything.
The project allows me to explore one idea thoroughly, and to work on variations within that limiting framework.

Tart card identity, posters... a way of communicating for casual sex seekers in hopes to develop an underground/cult/sex/scene that will desensitize the taboo idea of sex. Yes ugly people have sex too, deal with it! People are very intricate creatures...

As a vegetarian I often get asked what I eat. This project is meant to show that vegetarians eat just like everyone else. I have designed food illustrations in six categories: breakfast, lunch, dinner, veggies, fruits, and sweets. These will be displayed as books involving ideas and recipes for a vegetarian diet. I also presented a select amount of images on plates to better show how the food is standard to everyday life. This project is not a guide but more of a helpful starter for someone who is curious or wants to become a vegetarian but does not know how. I am trying to show people that it is not a difficult lifestyle and with these ideas they can live a healthy meat-free life.
images and a set of books presenting meatless food.
