“We Don't Stop Here” — Surreal Montage

Polymer Chess Set

A chess set fabricated out of polymer clay by hand, designed as an experiment in physical interactivity and affordance rather than digital.

The general look and feel of the pieces is a homage to vinyl art and toy culture. The bright and fun color scheme is meant to envoke a sense of curiosity and lightheartedness.

Gouache Color Triangle

In an attempt to break free from the traditional representations of colors as they relate to each other, the wheel was transformed into a triangle & hand painted using gouache paint.

The angular approach is a more mathematical and aesthetically unique way to display color correlations.

NES: Time Paradox

Rendered Nintendo Entertainment System game label with personal branding.

This was made by scanning an actual NES cartridge and removing the background, then using Photoshop to juxtapose and blend a custom rendered label.

The rendered label was made by using indexed colors (of the actual NES color palette) to create a pixelized and 8-bit version of the original image.

“Not Today”

This piece is a visual representation of the famous quote from A Game of Thrones, which reads:

“There is only one god and his name is Death. And there is only one thing we say to Death: ‘Not today.’”

The wolf street art in the photo is meant to represent the direwolves of Westeros, a near-mythical breed of canine from the A Song of Fire & Ice series of novels, placed in a modern-day setting.

“God's Lonely Man”

“Worlds Apart”

“The Litany Against Fear”

This piece was done by die-cutting the letters out of red paper first, then creating a second layer cut from Chinese funeral money. This money is burned at funerals and is sometimes referred to as “Hell Money”. I then burned away the bottom of the letters to reveal the rich red paper underneath.

The quote is and excerpt from a longer monologue from Dune, which goes like this:

“I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing... Only I will remain.”

Noir Signage

This sign was fabricated from foam core poster board and reflective, textured paper. LED lights were threaded through the sign. The sign & photography were meant to create a feel that emphasizes the word as an adjective that describes not only the color or an area of film, but a certain aesthetic.
