Animated a time-lapse of Alain’s latest flash painting. Check him out on instagram @woodensuit (or better yet, get some traditional flash on yer skin! He’s currently working out of Graveyard Tattoos in Clackamas).

P.S. make sure your sound is on for the full effect.

JUST SENT MY LAST INVOICE TO ZUPAN’S MARKETS!

That title is misleading, what I actually mean is next Monday I jump from being a freelancer to becoming their in-house graphic designer. 

Although I will miss the freedom that comes with working from home, I am truly excited about taking this job. When I started working in the bakery at Zupan’s Burnside location in 2008 to pay rent while attending design school, I had no idea it would transition into a full time creative career. I also met the love of my life working there, so needless to say I owe Zupan’s a lot :)

Keep your eyes peeled for even more signage, mailers, bags, etc. than ever before. Not to mention more chalkboard work!

Every kitchen needs these three things:

Record Player, Chalkboard, and Avocado Walls (and food+cooking stuff as well, I guess).

Just added to my portfolio: recent ads for Arakawa Hanging Systems in Dwell and Museum magazines.

Early birthday present I painted for Alain. Inspired by traditional Japanese back tattoos and the art of Mimiyo Tomozawa (yes, specifically those Jim O’Rourke album covers I love so much)

Here is a closer look behind some of the repeating gouache patterns I’ve made recently (all of them can be seen on my portfolio). As you can see, there are a lot of changes that take place between what I scan in and the finished pattern. 

Hope everyone in Portland had an amazing Snowpocolypse2014!! So much fun.

Can’t stop making patterns! It is seriously addictive. Can’t decide on a color combo for this one, which do you guys prefer?

My newest Kraft Bag for Zupan’s Markets features a giant crab! Every year on Christmas Eve we have delicious crab at my Aunt Mary Ann’s house in Seattle before we go home to open presents and drink too much nog. It’s definitely a “winter food” here. Now I just have to think of what to put on the Spring bags! 

Super quick project from last weekend. I occasionally work for trade, and love doing lookbooks for Nichole McIver, the jewelry designer behind Acanthus. Her sequel to the very witchy Hathor Collection is to die for!
