This year is about Music, Graffiti and murals from Chicago, Dominican Republic and Haiti. I tried to incorporate the spirit into this series of posters which will be on sale at the event.
A series which shows the line up and some illustrations.
Some images from the gig!
Well, another 4 years has gone by and it's time to vote for our next president. I love creating a poster each term because it really gets my creative juices flowing. Four years ago I designed this poster which talked about balance. This term I want to bring to the surface "individuality". This topic is very important especially with every major topic which has been discussed on the campaign trail. I used typography as characters to express how important it is for us to stay true to ourselves during these Elections. I hope it reaches some people and makes them go out and Vote. This is an initiative created by AIGA which will be spread across the Nation.

A few weeks ago I was notified that this image had won this competition out of thousands of entries. Holy crap! I was very surprised. The brief was to take a photograph that creatively captures daylight and celebrates the role natural light plays in our daily lives. I shot this in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago last year on a hot Summer day. The prize is a photo safari to NYC for two. Can't wait to explore that city and capture some new images. Thank you to the judges who picked this image. Amazing! Here is a link to the competition.
I am super excited about having mamas sauce print my new business cards. These bad boys are nothing short of excellence! 230#, 2.5" x 3.5" duplexed on Neenah epic black & natural white eggshell, foil stamped, letter pressed and printed to perfection! I could not be any happier with the outcome.
It has been some time since I picked up my brushes and painted, so for this years Art For Health Benefit I decided to give it a shot. I wanted to try something new and challenge myself a bit with painting into photographs I shot in Haiti and the D.R.
Each piece is a 24" x 36" black & white xerox print with my acrylic paint mixed in. I was not sure what to expect from this experiment, but it turned out pretty cool. I even sold 4/6 of the pieces at the benefit. This little project sparked my love for painting again and I am hoping to do some more this Winter.
