Tried to modify some code, accidentally broke something. This is representative of my frustration. Also, experimental warping of type is fun.
Saw a great home display in Chelsea with such a nice palette. Also, happened to be listening to shake, shake, shake. And my brain mashed those together into wall art.
Evidently on a geometric kick here. Saw some great tea packaging and waiting in a horrendously long line at Whole Foods. Apparently those experience inspire green/blue geometric madness.
Today's goal was to purchase a plant. After seeing many beautiful flowers I of course ultimately settled on a succulent to prevent any plant loss of life. In case you were wondering the plant's name is Seymour Mundo.
Watching old school dance movies makes me miss taking dance class for hours and watching dance. I don't get to the theater enough. Fosse's just elegant and sexy and has such beautiful contrast.
That bird is giving major shade, and that bird is me on Monday mornings. Various allusions to time, and sunrise in the mix.
I looked at a lot of early internet era inspired sites today. Also met a lot of square people earlier. The result is a very squared up illustration.
Sometimes the primaries aren't enough. Green and purple gotta get into the mix. Saw some interesting yarn type earlier. The grid made its way into the design.
Was cleaning out old textbooks and came across cell division. Also read an article about how dangerous space debris is. Boom. Weird globby space art.
On a space kick. Won't deny it. Apparently still thinking about space debris and how it's just hanging out there ready to knock out an unsuspecting astrinaut.
Berry picking in Baskin Ridge with the faves. I didn't know raspberry picking is an art. You have to avoid crazy looking beetles and too many thorns.
Did this one quickly pre Smorgasburg bike ride while trying to pump myself up with some music. Everything eventually comes back to dance for me.
This is the foxtrot box step. Ironically, it is my least favorite Standard dance. Regardless, everyone should dance more. Just saying.
I've got cookies on the brain. This sneaky cookie monster doesn't look like he's going to share. He takes after his illustrator.
Indoor pools are fun. Trying some experimental type with photography and graphic elements.
Saw an interesting looking mural on a bike ride in Brooklyn. Inspired to make a geometric exploration.
Thinking about the different ways to approach briefs lately. Also flipping through Architectural Digest may have had something to do with the outcome of this illustration.
Juggling a lot of moving pieces. Somehow the chaos sorts itself out every time. Creativity is organizing the chaos into a system that makes sense and is flexible enough to grow.
Home of my favorite: dim sum...plus many other goodies. I miss working in soho. Everything yummy was just around the corner.
Played dominoes for the first time in forever the other day. I suppose it found its way into my psyche. Also been looking into setting up a server, there a subtle references to that in the illsutration as well.
Gearing up for a new project. I suppose I think very geometrically if this is a representation of "shaping up". I also appear to be feeling calm about things.
Stop designing to be a better designer. Sounds counterintuitive but I promise it's not. Have a read.
Getting back to my classical music roots. You don't play competitively for years and not miss it. However, it's hard to find practice pianos in the city.
We should all stay wild at heart and also have wild minds where creativity roams free. Experimenting with type, illustration and texture.
Inspired by a cool book cover I saw in a Brooklyn bookstore. Tried to spell form out of lines and gradients. Wanted it to read but simultaneously be anbiguous.
