Another set from Cracked.com
Thor + Gravity.
Seen on Cracked.com, but it was too priceless to not post.
Scenes from Captain Phillips and All Is Lost put into a gif set to make a new story.
Both are great movies, and I happened to watch them one after the other, so it makes these all the more hilarious.
WIP for an Illustration piece that will become a part of an infographic designed to teach people how to design for various Mobile devices.
The infographic will basically teach people the various standards of the devices and how to design for them in a way that will be appealing. The three systems covered are iOS, Windows, and Android in their newest versions.
Some sculpture works I had forgotten to upload.

The map and the magic crystal
I want Elrond said the same to Gandalf in first movie. ”Mmmm…Well,I suspect the moon runes might be in here….”
Just got a new brush-tipped pen and started fiddling around with it.
Was watching some minority report while drawing, so if you’re wondering what the words are, now you know.
A one-hour doodle of a deity I created called the Faceless King.
Perhaps I’ll color it…. eventually….
This is exactly what it’s like living in Rochester.
It was spring! I wore a T-shirt! I had a spring jacket on and felt warm!
Then.. they BETRAYED us! They LIED to us! Nasty, awful, fat Rochester! Send a blizzard warning, they did. Ruined industry day, they did.
Personal Branding Project
Top image is the final logo, colored.
After I had made the black and white version of my logo, I then needed to explore the colored aspect and how it would interact with color.
I had a pattern from a previous design that I loved, and the colors felt soft and were interesting with some sort of pattern to them.
I did try the logo with the pattern simply behind it, but the ship was too dark and I was again faced with the issue of white space and allowing the eye to rest somewhere within the image.
I turned the ship white, giving the eye rest within the form itself and allowing the pattern and colors to keep interest. The text at the bottom was also changed in color to be the darkest of the teal.
I now have a final logo design! Yes!
Images for how this will interact with my resume and portfolio site will be posted soon!
Personal Branding Project
The first image is the final form of the black and white logo. The others are the various iterations and steps that I went through to reach that final form.
1. At first I wanted to use an airship sort of theme to show off the fantastical and fun nature of myself, and also add in a bit of mystery and intrigue while still keeping it visually appealing. I really liked the idea of keeping the bottom of the ship looking like fish fins and having that be a part of the design, so I did a ton of research into various kinds of fish and spattered some of their fins on the bottom.
I was stuck between the Hot Air Balloon feeling versus the Sailing ship, but in the end the sail was a better way to communicate the idea than the Hot Air Balloon (I was also told that the one with the Hot Air Balloon looked more like a T-Rex with a parachute).
2. The next step was finding a good way to work around the typeface and how I wanted to use the ship. I did like my triangle, but it limited the image and really blocked it in more than was good. Modern logos are more free-floating than older ones, but all the same, I preferred to keep the ship contained in something.
3. I eventually chose my type and then began working on the shape of the triangle again, along with the form of the name. Camel-Case wasn’t strong enough to stand next to the image, while all Caps was a bit too much and lacked softness. I chose to make the “c” in my last name smaller, and lift it up to soften the name while also chopping into the triangle and breaking it up a bit more.
The Triangle’s empty space was to give the eye somewhere to rest while looking at the logo. It was very busy, and in the interest of making it less-so, I chose to use white-space to my advantage.
Next step: Color!
In the process of creating a logo.
I went through a few iterations, and decided that among my three or four pages of sketches that I would render out three of my favorites fully, and then choose from them that way.
These were the three that I had rendered from my sketches. The winner was the ship, but this isn’t the final form of it.
Time to begin tweaking!
Trying to work out a personal branding piece and I’m doing something a bit more calligraphic with my initials.
Holy god is that difficult in Illustrator!
